The Wine: Get The Party Started 2018
Matic Get The Party Started 2018 is a skin contact natural wine (orange wine) made from 100% Riesling grapes grown in Slovenia. The juice and skins are aged together in clay amphora for over six months – yep, 6 months of skin contact. Get The Party Started is a bone-dry Riesling, cloudy, and with great texture. White flowers and dried fruit on the nose. Spectacular.
The Winery: Matic
Matic Wines is Matija Žerjav, known simply as Matic to his friends and family. Matic chooses to farm his 9 hectares of land using all organic and biodynamic methods. He prefers these methods less because of the fashion of natural and organic winemaking and more because he firmly believes this is how wine should be made. He wants his children to be able to play in the vineyard and someday, should they choose, he would be happy to see them follow in his footsteps and farm the same land, hills, and valleys which he farms.
