ZELEN

12,20

Zelen is an old local vine of the Vipava region. When the Austro- Hungarian Empire existed, it was also known in the Austrian capital Vienna. The wine is of a golden yellow color with a beautiful luster. The flower is accentuated, varietal and floral. It smells of dried apricots. It is a bit herbal, clea, clear and inviting. In our mouth, the wine is dry, light, of moderate acidity, with a nice intensity of taste.
