Movia Puro 2011
Brilliant golden yellow color, with abundant, fine, and lingering sparkling bubbles rising towards the top. The bouquet presents a true Pleiad of intense, fine aromas reminiscent of ripe pineapple, papaya, yellow apple, lemon peel, tangerine, acacia, marzipan, all pleasantly accompanied by a scent of a sweet festive bread. Zero dosage in the mouth, you notice softness, but at the same time emphasized freshness and fine pearls that gently caress us. Finishing up with an authentic Brda mineral signature. It has an intense and lasting, full-bodied aftertaste with accentuated elegance. A balanced expression of purism enchants the drinker with its elegance and immediacy.

A picturesque, eastern European wine growing nation, Slovenia can claim one of the most ancient winemaking cultures in all of Europe. Its history dates back to the Celts and Illyrians tribes, well before the Romans had any influence on France, Spain or Germany. But it wasn’t until the 1970s that Slovenia developed a more refined, private-sector wine industry.
Today it is a powerful source of some of the industry’s most important orange wines (whites made with extended skin contact); furthermore, fully three quarters of the country’s wine production is white.
Slovenian weather is continental with hot summers and cold, wet winters. It is divided into three wine regions: Podravje in Slovenia’s northeast; Primorska in its west, close to Italy; and Posavje in its southeast. These are further divided to nine wine districts.
Representing the topmost expression of a Champagne house, a vintage Champagne is one made from the produce of a single, superior harvest year. Vintage Champagnes account for a mere 5% of total Champagne production and are produced about three times in a decade. Champagne is typically made as a blend of multiple years in order to preserve the house style; these will have non-vintage, or simply, NV on the label. The term, "vintage," as it applies to all wine, simply means a single harvest year.
