Ferdinand Epoca 2016
Ferdinand Epoca is an intense ruby color. The flower is composed of aromas of berries and plum marmalades with notes of vanilla. There is an intense and full taste in the mouth of the fruit with moderate acids and ripe tannins.
Composition of varieties:
Cabernet Sauvignon 30%
Method of Aging and Production:
Hand picking. The maceration lasts for 2-3 weeks, and then the fermented wine is poured into 225 liter barrels, where the biological digestion is completed, which gives the wine a softness. Aging in French oak barrels lasts at least another 18 months.
The grapes are grown in the vineyards of Kalehne and Breg. Hand harvesting only.
The altitudes of the vineyards are between 150 and 300m and mostly look south and east.
Ferdinand wines are made in Brda. The style of the Ferdinand wine house is today shaped by Matjaz Fourth, an agronomist who, from childhood, felt he wanted to become a winemaker. He revived the family tradition, as the family of Matjaž's pranonot Ferdinand was already very successful in wine-making. In the Ferdinand wine cellar, the most attention is paid to the rebula they present in all wine lines - as fresh wine (classic rebula), matured in oak barrels (Época), as macerated rebula (Brutus) and in sparkling wine Sinefinis. The Ferdinand Cellar is the initiator and organizer of the Rebolium project - a rebula through time that explores and promotes its development.
