Stajerska is a hilly, predominantly white wine area in north-eastern Slovenia, bordering Austria and Hungary. Befitting its location it has a rich and varied history, with styles and varieties both of itself and of its neighbours. It is here that Matija Žerjav - known as Matic to his friends - farms nine hectares of old, organic family vineyards and makes wine in a cellar dating back to 1852. “We work only with what nature gives us,” says Matic, “so no chemicals in our wines.”
This Sipon, also known as furmint in Hungary, is richly flavoured. It is bursting with citrus fruits and the 6 months less ageing provide it with extra body and complexity.
'A love story in the acts' refers to the local rivers and local soil that influence the wine.
