Andrej Kristančič, owner of Nando Winery, has been making wines on his family’s farm for nearly 25 years. He studied winemaking in high-school, allowing him to expand on his personal style while continuing the family tradition started by his grandfather, Nando. Andrej has a low interventionist style, combined with a true farmer’s knowledge, humility, and dedication to tradition marked with his own personal expression of winemaking.
The vineyards are planted in a poor soil of marl or “ponka” as it’s known in the local Slovenian dialect.
This wine although does a short skin maceration, is concentrated yet very fresh, honeyed, golden delicious apple fruit flavours and some lovely spiciness from the lees ageing.
An incredibly elegant orange, perfect for a first time approach to a macerated wine.
