Renato Keber Collio Zegla Riserva (6 Bottle Case)
This product is currently sold out.
Tereza and her father Renato farm 11ha. on the eastern side of the hill in Collio. Grapes are predominantly Tocai Friulano, Malvasia and Ribolla Gialla with Sauvignon and Chardonnay taking one or two minor roles … playing them pretty impressively mind.
Three separate wineries, the two Kebers and Blasic just a few hundred metres up the road have agreed a series of guidelines, almost a recipe, … 100% Zegla fruit, 100% Tocai Friulano, agreed and identical picking date, wild yeasts, two weeks skin contact, 2 years minimum further ageing in either concrete, old oak or Steel and then release to the market in its 6th year. All the wines share exactly the same front label whichever of the wineries they come from and you have to look very closely at the back labels as well to find the differences. And to answer the obvious question, yes, they do all taste slightly different when you look at them side by side… all brilliant … but subtly different. With so few growers in Zegla the chances of them mustering the political clout to have Zegla recognised as a DOCG are about zilch and this felt like a good alternative way to bring focus and attention to the site. To start we are shipping the ‘Zegla’ from Renato Keber but we may add/ alternate/ change as we go ??!
Ethereal, honeyed, unique - about as close to other-worldly as you can get with a wine.
Matches perfectly with unrequited love.
