A wine of straw-like yellow colour. The nose is a combination of intertwined meadow flowers, blossoming plantations of cherries and apricots, as well as hawthorn and blackthorn from the edge of the forest. On the palate the fruity character reveals itself, emphasising ripe apples, pears, and vineyard peaches with the addition of citrus fruits. A fine balance between alcohol and acidity is rounded off by a distinct mineral note that gives the wine a pleasant saltiness which remains present in the long aftertaste.
The Rebula is exceptional as an aperitif and indispensable when socializing with dishes increase appetite, from vegetable tempura to canapés with marinated trout and prosciutto. It is an excellent companion to vegetable soups, risottos and pastas, seafood, cottage cheese soufflés, freshwater and saltwater fish, as well as various stews, grilled chicken, delicate cow cheese and numerous other dishes which call for Rebula’s freshness. The ideal serving temperature is between 8 and 10 °C.
