Across the northeastern border of Italy, at the foothills of the Alps and 15 miles from the Adriatic, sits the Goriška Brda region of Slovenia (‘Collio’ in Italian). In the late 1980s, Katja Kabaj married former French Legionnaire and Bordeaux-trained enologist Jean Michel Morel, and they settled in Katja’s family village of Šlovrenc. After they were married, they made the decision to bottle their own wines from their 15 ha of vines rather than sell their grapes - a great choice given that they are now regularly hailed as one of Wine & Spirits top 100 wineries of the year. Here, they give us an elegant rebula, fermented on the skins for a luxurious 30 days. A fuller-bodied, mellow, aged orange wine, it has well-integrated tannins and a lingering dried-fruit finish. Organically grown, low-intervention/natural wine, skin-fermented, vegan.
