This was the final red wine at Lake Bled and another new grape variety: Teran. Later research uncovered that Teran is a member of the Refosco family of grapes that are known for high acidity and if harvested too early harsh unripe tannins. Well they must of harvested these grapes correctly because I had no problem with the tannins in this one.
The wine was a purple colour but I couldn’t tell the intensity in the fading light.
It had a medium to pronounced scent with strong fruity aromas of plum and dark berries, It also had a wet mineral/mossy scent.
I enjoyed this wine. It was dry with high acidity and medium low tannins, and whilst this did give it a slightly sour flavour the plum fruit came through nicely, as well as a bit of mineral that reminded me of fresh rain on mossy stone.
According to the label this is a wine rich in iron and Lactic acid. The low alcohol and high acidity aid digestion and stimulate the appetite. Well I don’t know about that but it was something different and very drinkable.
