2019 Radikon Slatnik
The 2019 Radikon Slatnik is a complex yet easy-going orange wine. Rich and bold, yet – as with all of Radikon's wines – there's a vein of acid that makes it super fresh. The Slatnik is a blend of Chardonnay and Tocai. It spends about 2 weeks on skins depending on the vintage and the texture you gain from this is incredible.
Radikon’s story begun in the early 1900s, when the indigenous Ribolla Gialla was planted by the grandfather of one Stanko Radikon. The winery was built on soils a complex mix of sandstone, clay and marine deposits and utilised old-school practices of low-yield farming (producing juicy, jumbo grapes) and hand-harvesting. In 1948, Stanko’s parents took over and widened the plantings to include Merlot, Tocai Friulano and Pinot Grigio.
