Wood-fermented Merlot with a 40-day maceration, aged 2 years in 10% new barriques.

The serious side of Merlot, with bright traits of red fruit but also more austere hints of underbrush and coffee. In the mouth prunes, dark berries for a powerful structure and long aftertaste.

From the producer


The history of Slavcek farm begins in 1769 the year it was founded. Still owned by the Vodopivec family today it is Frank together with his wife Alenka and two sons Andrej and Tomaz who manage the farm.

After his grandfather's death in the late 1970s Franc set out to find himself, Slavcek's fields lying fallow and the winery half-empty. It was his meeting with Alenka that turned him around: together they decided to restore the family farm, giving continuity to a tradition of more than two hundred years and relying on an environmentally friendly system of work.

"The choice to go organic came in 1995. We follow nature, observe it and let it do its own thing. Playing the most important part in the countryside is not us, but the land, water, air and sun. We see organic not as an agricultural choice, but as a philosophy of life. This means that we are not only organic when we grow vines and fruit trees or when we raise livestock, but in every moment of the same day: in every choice, idea and decision ... organic is the only way forward, the only perspective for the future."
