Radikon Oslavje 1 litre Orange Wine, biodynamic wine, no added sulphur, outstanding complexity, long skin maceration. This is one of Stanko’s wines so long 3-4 month skin contact and ageing in barrel. It is a delicious blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio and Sauvignon Blanc with a deep gold hue and hints of stone fruit and bruised apple on the nose with nuts, savoury elements, ginger, spice and much more. A complex, elegant wine whose perfume, depth, minerality and richness are the perfect embodiment of the Radikon philosophy. We had this with a Risotto made with squid Ink at the Buon Vino Xmas party, the combination was fantastic! In the larger format bottle, the wine will age for decades, this rare 2010 is now 12 years old and should be showing incredible depth of flavour and complexity.

Radikon is a 12 hectare estate in Friuli on the Slovenian border of Italy, and is a truly unique winery.  It lies in the heartland of a region which has become synonymous with skin contact and Orange wine.

The king of orange wines as far as we are concerned is Radikon. Stanko Radikon lead this groundbreaking winery from 1995.  He revitalised skin contact for white wine and helped also pave the way for the natural wine movement.  He realised back then that the local indigenous grape, Ribolla Gialla, needed to be treated differently to other varieties.  He turned to his Grandfather’s method of vinification.  This involved seven days of skin maceration.  Stanko continued to experiment with this technique over the years.  He refined and perfected it along the way and also employed biodynamic principles at the winery. 

Today's classic wines made from Ribolla and Friulano have around three months of maceration, with long periods of barrel and bottle ageing.  These stunning bottles are in 500ml and 1 litre formats with thin bottle necks and corks.  Radikon believes these special bottles and corks help the ageing process in bottle.  These are wines which will age beautifully for well over 10 years.  Radikon also make a range of earlier drinking wines with a shorter skin maceration. 

The wines are truly fascinating, with unbelievable complexity, profound flavours yet immense freshness. 

Since Stanko sadly passed away in 2016, his son Saša continues in his father's tradition.  He maintains the same high standards and attention to detail.  Some would say he is making even better wine than his Father.
