HARVESTING TECHNOLOGY: In the summer, grape reduction was carried out. Grapes were harvested manually in mid-September, in the afternoons – to avoid the morning dew.
Wine fermented with the grapes' own yeast and matured for one year in Slovenian oak barrels. Only domestic oak wood is used to ensure harmony between wood structure and wine.
Oaks that grow near the Batič vineyards are subject to a very similar climate as the vines. This harmony between wine and oak-barrel wood structure strongly contributes to Batič wines' renowned elegance.
The wine was racked and bottled in the time of the old moon.
