The Zan White is a blend of rumeni plavec, muscat, traminec, žametna črnina, pinot blanc, riesling, and kraljevina. This field blend is only 10.5% and offers an aromatic experience. It's dry on the palate, with notes of grilled pineapple, guava, yellow melon and a squeeze of lemon. This one will go down easy, trust us. Abi recently enjoyed a bottle with some salt & vinegar kettle chips and highly recommends the pairing!
Keltis is one of the leading producers within Bizeljsko, focusing on native varietals with a low-intervention approach. For over 250 years, the Kelhar family has been tending to the fertile hills around Bizeljsko and in 1989, Marijan Kehlar started to spend more time in the winery than the family farm, creating wines for his new label, Keltis. Since then, Marijan has handed over the reins to his son, Miha, who has continued on the family legacy, producing some of the most interesting and delicious natural wines in Slovenia. They follow a biodynamic calendar, and work with wines is done at the time of the full moon, when the wine is at its peak and can fully express its potential.750 ml
Abigail's tasting note (2020 Vintage)
Colour: Hazy peach
Nose: Smells like summer! It's very expressive; think juicy apricot, underripe mango, guava and with hints of bay leaf and white tea. You can pretty much sit and smell this wine for hours, it's simply delightful.
Palate: Medium-bodied with a kiss of acidity. The tropical aromatics continue on the palate, with developing notes of grilled pineapple, guava, yellow melon and a squeeze of lemon.
Finish: Expressive. The flavours linger for a couple of moments before dissipating.
Pairing: Salt & Vinegar Miss Vickies. Piave or other hard, salty cheese.
Comments: Be prepared for this wine to give you tropical wanderlust.

Extremely juicy wine, most often called “lemonade”.
Extremely aromatic on the nose, with aromas of pears, peaches and tropical fruits, and completely dry and extremely potable in the mouth. Wine for every day.
