"Pikasi is a negociant project of Slovenian winemaker and professional ballroom dancer, Matic Rodica. Together with Vipava Valley grower, Petr Stegovec, Matic created the Pikasi lineup of naturally fermented indigenous variety wines – Pinela, Zelen, Rebula, Barbera and Barbera Rose. The labels are inspired by dancing, and the silhouettes were drawn off of Matic’s own dance photos. All of Pikasi wines are made in a fresh and approachable style and offer a pure and balanced expression of each grape varietal.
All grapes are hand-picked, de-stemmed, and pressed immediately. Spontaneous fermentation process is temperature controlled and takes place in stainless steel tanks. The wine is then matured on lees in stainless steels tanks for 5 months, then coarsely filtered before bottling, and released to the market 2 months after bottling.
This wine offers aromas of strawberry rhubarb pie, which lead to a creamy and slightly salty mouthfeel with a lingering finish.
Perfect refreshment for a warm day, this wine will also pair nicely with young cheeses, charcuterie, salads, baked fish and roasted vegetables." - Vinum USA
