Jakončič Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
Medium intense ruby to garnet color. On the nose, the wine is discreet, with a scent of forest fruits and a slight buttery note to complement the barrique note. In the mouth, the wine is dry, harmonious, with ripe tannins and medium-long aftertaste.
Composition of varieties: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Alcohol rate: 13.5%
Method of aging and production: The grapes are macerated for 10 days in stainless steel tanks and alcohol fermentation takes place in parallel. The wine is matured in contact with yeast, 50% in stainless steel tanks and 50% in used barrique barrels, for 10 months.
Vineyards: Vineyards are 15 years old, grown under the single Guyot system. Planting density is 5,000 vines per hectare.
Wine cellar: The wine tradition of the Jakončič family farm dates back to 1847, when Mihael and Carolina Jakončič took over the first vineyards in the village of Kozana in Goriška Brda, thus laying the foundation for family winemaking. The commitment to quality grape and wine production at the Jakončič farm has been and still is of primary importance. Only this type of production, combined with specific vineyard locations, can form the basis for the production of extracted, mineral-rich and structural wines.
