Details

Radikon Oslavje 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, if you want to wait that long!


Radikon is a 12 hectare estate on the Slovenian border of Italy, and is a truly unique winery. The king of orange wines as far as we are concerned. Stanko Radikon captained this groundbreaking winery since 1995, paving the way for the natural wine movement. He realised that the local indigenous grape, Ribolla Gialla, needed to be treated differently to other varieties so he turned to his grandfather’s method of vinification, which involved seven days of skin maceration. Stanko experimented with this technique and today's wines have around three months of maceration, along with long periods of barrel and bottle ageing. Working this way has meant that he has been able to cut out the use of sulphites entirely. The specially designed bottles allow for better development in bottle, and he only uses the highest quality corks that avoid cork taint. His grape selection is so meticulous, it is usual for a whole vine to go into making just one single bottle. His wines are truly fascinating, with unbelievable complexity, high ageing potential and profound, wild, flavours.



Since Stanko passed away recently, his son Saša Radikon continues in his father's tradition, maintaining the same high standards.
