We‚Äôre absolutely in love with this wine. So elegant yet full of character and interest. There‚Äôs a lovely richness to the wine from the warm climate, yet cool winds temper that and ensure the wine remains balanced. Then there's the influence of the unique Flysch soil that imparts freshness and minerality.
Zelen is an extremely rare and almost, until recently, forgotten grape variety. It is found exclusively in the Vipava region, in Western Slovenia, where the grape is one of the few that can withstand the brutal winds of the region ‚Äì the reason why young growers are re-discovering this rare variety.
The yields are naturally low, which means the few grapes the vines do produce are of outstanding quality and destined to produce wines of great complexity.
The earthy and mineral nature means they are great food wines. Try this with this mushroom tagliatelle.
Great service and excellent wines
Excellent service and excellent wines. I wanted a selection of six wines and asked Peckham Cellars to make the choice for me based on a price range. The wines were all superb and unique in that they were from small suppliers that I personally would have no knowledge of. If you want something different at your next dinner / party then I can't recommend these guys enough.
Super-speedy delivery! My wines arrived safe and sound in fully recyclable packaging. A real bonus. Website has such a great selection it was hard to choose.
I placed my order online from…Melbourne
I placed my order online from Melbourne Australia and the delivery of my birthday gift to a friend in London happened smoothly, quickly and well presented. Big thanks to the team at Peckham Cellars
Nice wine. Easy and efficient
Great for sending to friends as gifts/congratulations. You can include a message with the wine, so ideal really. Fun range of interesting wines.
