Damijan Podversic – 12/06/2014

2012 Nekaj
Supercharged fruit and floral, oodles of minerals. Very warm, concentrated candied fruit, plenty of botrytis character. Is this style too much for friulano?

2012 Malvasia
Much more subtle and cleaner saline minerality. Rich and warm yes but better contained, linear and mineral. Long balanced complex and heaps of time to settle into itself.

2012 Ribolla Gialla
Much denser and more toasty, picking up more wood notes but nicely integrated, richer rounder and more brooding.

2011 Nekaj (hotter vintage)
Lovely richness and velvety softness, creamy sweet tannins, warm yes but voluptuous too.

2011 Malvasia
Wow super concentrated but soft and silky, long and rolls on the palate, constantly evolving. What an amazing vintage.

2011 Ribolla Gialla
Fucking wow. So complete, balanced complex textural. Outstanding.

2010 Ribolla Gialla Riserva
Speechless. Even more amazing than the 2005. Shame it’s so expensive.

2013 Nekaj
Cold vintage. This wine doesn’t seem to go well in cooler (wetter/botrytis) vintages.

2013 Malvasia
Better but far too early to tell.

2013 Ribolla Gialla
As above.

2011 Prelit
Looking fantastic

2011 Kaplja
Fantastic.
