I tried this lovely white wine in a cute little wine bar next to Lake Bled. The perfect setting. The Rebula grape variety, as it is known in Slovenia, Ribolla Gialla as it is known in Italy, is a new grape for me. It turns out I love this grape 😁😁.
I tried four Rubula whites on this trip and loved three of them (one was a bit rough but all the wines in that bar were rough, so I think it might have been a storage problem). However this one was by far my favourite.
It is a lemon yellow colour with a medium scent of citrus, white fruit (think sweet red apples) and a hint of honey.
A dry wine with medium plus acidity, light to medium body and a slightly lingering finish but not long.
The acidity is well balanced and refreshing, giving it a citrus tang. The fruit flavours come through and the slight honeyed finish is lovely.
