Terrain: The terrain of the entire Štajerska region is made up of steep-sloped vineyards and narrow, wind-rich hill valleys.

Farming: No irrigation. Environmentally friendly cultivation, following the integrated farming guidelines of Slovenia. 

Vinification: Kobal Sparkling wines are made from perfectly ripe grapes shaped by both old school and modern technological approaches in the cellar. Secondary fermentation begins directly from the grape juice sealed in a special tank. Pressure and effervescence are maintained till the end of fermentation. This approach allows the winemaker to produce fresh, varietal focused, yet sophisticated sparkling wine. 

Tasting Notes: This wine is ready to drink immediately after bottling. It is not meant to be aged but will maintain its freshness for at least a year in a bottle. The bouquet is reminiscent of citrus fruit, such as lemon and lime. Pleasant acidity and minerality on the palate are highlighted by the tiny playful bubbles. 

Serve at 4C as an aperitif, or with pasta with a cream sauce, vegetables or light fish dishes.
