Hot summer days and rainy and cloudy autumn days were just perfect for the Ptuj's sauvignon. They allowed it to develop the characteristic sauvignon aroma and taste. The sauvignon grapes were harvested t four different times. The harvest began in the first ten days of September and continued until the last ten days of September. Winemaking: Sauvignon is a combination of four differently ripe grapes and diverse oenological procedures, such as 100% maceration lasting 8 to 12 hours, strict ageing on fine lees and strictly protective technology, which guarantees the preservation of varietal characteristics, reshness and drinkability.
Sauvignon is a typical representative of the Ptujska klet's sauvignon wines, with a strong varietal identity. Its aroma reminds of grapefruit, elder tree, paprika and freshly cut grass. It is a round, rich and full-bodied wine where the acids and the sugars are complemented by the wine's bouquet. Pullus Sauvignon 2010 is a typical representative of the modern Sauvignons from the Styria region.
Pullus is a project through which Ptujska Klet, unveiled the concept of changes it has set out for this millenium. These changes began years ago in our vineyards, and the most recent took place in 2007, when a new name was created for wines from Ptujska Klet. Pullus wines from Ptujska Klet have preserved all the characteristics of the renowned Haloze and Slovenska Gorica vineyard sites. At the same time, they've taken on a livelier character, and delightfully flirt with those in search of wine flavours and aromas and freshness. They have become more playful in culinary experiences, and provide a welcome solution for otherwise unimaginative everyday and holiday dishes.
