Merlot from long maceration. It is left on the skins until even the last ounce of sugar has fermented. After racking it matures for 5 years in new oak barrels. This long time is necessary to smooth out the wine's sharper edges caused by the long maceration and new wood in the barrels. The wine becomes soft, gentle, but retains all its power.

So forget about a fresh fruit juice on tasting, there will be denser notes, where it goes up in thickness and the memories become of jams and dried fruits.

Ales Kristancic describes it this way, "Some Merlots tend to be more powerful, as in the case of Movia Merlot. It is a wine that requires all our attention to be understood fully. The color is opaque with garnet highlights, a proof that the wine has been with us for a long time. But the real joy begins when we bring the glass closer to the nose. The combination of juicy, ripe red fruits and the evolved notes simply create joy. This dry, ripe and juicy Merlot with a velvety texture, lots of structure, great backbone and serious tannin. It is ready to drink now, but will be enjoyed for at least a decade."

This is a natural wine for special occasions. To be drunk slowly, to be fully enjoyed!

From the producer

Movia

Movia's roots go back to the early 18th century, and the Kristančič family has been taking care of the estate since 1820. The estate covers 30 hectares of which about 25 are planted in vineyards. We are in Brda, the border area between Slovenia and Italy, where the wine-growing districts of Goriška brda and Collio meet.
