About the product: The Frelih wine cellar is a family winery in the heart of Šentrupert, opposite a late Gothic church in the city center. Frelih vineyards are distinguished by their sunny location, quality soil and favorable climate. They grow traditional vines, whose grapes they turn into wines of the best quality. In addition to Cviček od fare, which was the first cviček registered and awarded at the Decanter wine competition, the Frelih Wine Cellar is also distinguished by various sparkling wines obtained by the traditional method, younger wines and wines matured in oak barrels.

As a region, Dolenjska is very suitable for Pinot Noir - the cold climate gives the wine more of a fruity taste. Pinot Noir is a very demanding variety, it gives birth early, and the sugars are high (so wine can have as much as 14% alcohol in good weather conditions). The wine fermented for 3 weeks in contact with the skins, thus gaining on the color, body and tannins that help the wine to further age or mature. The winemakers started the fermentation spontaneously with grapes of their own yeast. Fermentation was followed by biological deacidification, which gives the wine roundness. The wine was aged for 6 months in used barrels and bottled without filtration.
