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.

Green silvanec is a type of grape that ripens early, has small berries and is susceptible to disease. Grape juice of green silvanec is in contact with grape skins for 1-3 days, which is also called maceration. Alcoholic fermentation must takes place in the presence of grapes with the help of its own yeasts. Green silvanec matures for 6 months in barrel barrels, which give the wine additional aromas. The wine matures on dead yeast and is bottled without filtration. The young wine tastes like citrus and green apple. Wine that has been macerated for a long time gets aromas of vanilla and wood. Green silvanec is served at 14 degrees to make its aroma more pronounced.

Green Silvanec of the year 2016 received as many as 84 points at the Decanter 2017 wine competition, and also won gold medals at the Berliner Wein Trophy and gold medals at the Asia Wine Trophy.
