ABOUT THE PRODUCER

About Sanctum Leptir Orange Wine

Sanctum Leptir Orange Wine opens with spicy aromas of dry wildflowers, apricots, pears, and white tea with honey. Bright and savory.

Embracing the minimal intervention approach in the cellar, hand-harvested grapes were processed separately. Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris were destemmed into small open-top fermenters, spontaneously fermented on the skins for 14-21 days. Both wines were matured in 300-500 liter used Slovenian oak barrels. Chardonnay was whole bunch pressed and spontaneously fermented in Slovenian and French oak barrels. After 10 months of barrel aging, the blend was created in stainless steel tanks and bottled unfiltered.

About Sanctum Winery

In the mid-12th century, French Carthusian monks settled in this northeast region of Slovenia and planted it with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines. The Podkubovšek family, starting with Vlado and his son, Marko, has always cherished and been proud of this local heritage, hence the fact that all of their wines are made in a traditional style, where the vines and the microclimate speak for themselves. All of the grapes are strictly hand-picked on steep marl-rich slopes of up to 45°, and vinified with minimal intervention in the winemaking process.
