With 12 months of skin contact for the Rebula (whole berries barrel fermented), this blend (50% Rebula, 50% Chardonnay) emerges impressively soft and accessible – very light extraction here. The nose is sage-dominated, and it’s crisp and nutty on the palate, with a nice nervy hint of Rebula’s high acids that doesn’t dominate. Tannins are very fine, and overall there’s a feeling of focus and definition. This is the best vintage of Kontra that I’ve yet tasted – chapeau!
