From Bogdanuška (translates Gift from God), Kuc and Pošip.  The first two varieties are rather neutral in character, so Jo decided to experiment with extended maceration to build a deeper flavour profile.  A range of skin contact times are blended together here, from 10 days to a tiny portion which sees 340 days.  Additionally, based on the Champagne experience, additional components with extended lees contact are also included, most notably a tiny portion of the previous vintage wine which sees some 21 months on solids – this component bringing in some amazing non-oak derived toastiness.
