Keep it natural, baby.
Kobal Sauvignon belongs to the family of wines with a specially and particularly pronounced fingerprint of nature, which impresses even the most affluent sensory taste buds by a combination of an extremely pronounced primary bouquet and a rich varietal taste of Sauvignon. The smell of the so-called thiol character of Sauvignon is reminiscent of passion fruit, gooseberry and grapefruit. The characteristic odor is followed by a rich flavor with a particularly pronounced long after-taste. Therefore, the wine has an extremely rich character of the variety, with exceptional juiciness and wit of the flavor. Sauvignon Kobal is a unique creation of nature and a vision of a winemaker, who wants to conjure up the wine lovers an unforgettable wine experience. The wine can be enjoyed in a glass alone or together with gastronomic experience, especially with light dishes in spring and summer days.
The Kobal brand puts the wines from the selected vineyards of Slovenian Styria (Štajerska) on the world’s wine map. The majority of their wines come from the vineyards located on steep slopes of Haloze that consist predominantly of marl and from the vines that average more than 35 years in age. All of site’s complex influences result in unique traits of their wine, 24 hours long (or even longer) cold maceration accentuates their fruitiness; they exhibit freshness and reflect the fingerprint of nature – a distinctive Štajerska terroir.
Like the climate, soil and location of the vineyards, Kobal Wines are exceptional and unique. They come from cooler climate area and they express varietal characteristics beautifully. Their wines narrate the most sincere story of nature’s creation and human creative intervention. The result of such harmonious relationship is the wine that enthrals all the receptors that serve taste and smell, even the most sensitive and sophisticated palate.
Slovenian Styria (Štajerska) wine–growing region and Haloze subdistrict rank among the most exclusive wine-growing sites in Europe. These outstanding sites had been renowned for millennia, as there are evidences about continuous tradition of viticulture and viniculture in this area from the Roman period, throughout the centuries to the time of Austro-Hungarian Monarchy, and to this day.
The soil is rich in marl and vines are more than 35 years old in average, so their roots go deep into the ground, therefore they can absorb a rich minerality of the soil and accumulate it in grapes that finally results in full and sophisticated taste of their wines.
The creation of wine always reflects different levels of grape ent levels of creation in full taste and ripeness. In this manner, they are able to capture the whole potential of the individual varietal. In grape processing, cold maceration plays a key role in the extraction of aromatic and mineral elements into wine. Their wines are enriched with various methods of maturation, such as maturation in inox tanks or in wooden barrels (usually oak) and they are always aged on fine lees (bâtonnage method).
They create our wines according to strong belief that wine can become the most precious spice of life if consumed responsibly. Every wine, no matter where on Earth it was grown, has its own moment of a special glow. They believe that some of their wines will become a cherished and irreplaceable spice of a moment in your life, be it a gastronomic experience or romantic atmosphere, hanging out with your friends or simply enjoying some time alone accompanied by a glass of excellent wine.
