Jakot Blue Label Nando, Orange Wine, Organic Wine, short Skin Maceration, floral, aromatic. This is a great entry point to orange wine as the maceration is fairly short - a really elegant wine made from Tokaj (or Fruiliano) and is the most floral of the three blue label wines that they make. The wines undergo a natural fermentation in tank and are bottled with a minimum of SO2.

This excellent value orange wine is from a small winery based in Slovenia right on the border with the Collio region of Friuli. It is a small operation – 60% of the vineyards are in Friuli- Collio, the rest on the Slovenian side of the border. The winery is 100 metres from the border itself in the region of Primorska, sub-region of Brda. All the farming is organic although not certified and mainly local grapes are used – Rebula (aka Ribolla Gialla); Malvazija (Malvasia); Friulano – however they also make Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet. Andrej Kristancic now runs the winery named after his Grandfather and produces orange wines of excellent quality and typicity with better than average value for money.
