More about this wine from Štajerska-Slovenia, Podravje region of Eastern Slovenia

And now for something completely different... please meet the creation that appears to be out of this world from one of Slovenia's top winemakers, Peter Gönc: 2019 Grape Abduction White! Peter is a young gun just making a name for himself, but his pedigree is four generations of winemakers, and the Grape Abduction line of wines shows off some serious winemaking chops!


The juice is a blend of Pinot Blanc and Yellow Muscat grown on a single vineyard in Štajerska-Slovenia (the Podravje region). The grapes thrive in the harsh environment of the rocky hills in Slovenia. Sometimes Pinot Blanc gets knocked for not being too exciting of a grape, but in its youth, the grape brings a lush roundness of flavor to your glass, and when paired with a sidekick this party can really get started! For Gönc, that sidekick is Yellow Muscat, which is very fun and fresh with tropical, crisp notes of lychee. This grape duo is like liquifying fresh white flowers in a perfect meadow and sipping it while the sun sets. See more from winemaker Peter Gönc below.


 


How to drink it

Pro Tip:

Seafood with a lil spice is so nice with this ridiculously crisp white wine, so we whipped up these shrimp and sauce and downed the whole liter bottle.
