An intense, complex nose with bright scents of ripened cherries, figs, strawberries and oak result in a taste that has lovely ripe fruit and full body flavors. Light acid and with nice depth of flavors. Good varietal characters are noted and oak barrel maturing result in a harmonious rounding of flavors.

Wine from Slovenia? Before you turn up your nose you should know that the Goriška Brda winery where Avia is bottled is only 20 miles from Trieste, Italy. Surely you’ve had some delicious wines from this corner of northeastern Italy before. Across the border in the beautiful Dobrovno region the only difference you’ll notice (wine-wise that is) is the much lower price of a bottle of local wine. As far as the vines are concerned, the terroir and climate are the same as nearby Italy!
Got your attention yet? Who wouldn’t want to save some money while drinking wines that are just as good as their more well-known neighbors? Wine’s been made in Slovenia thousands of years, they’ve got as much experience as the next guy. The only thing holding Slovenian wineries back all these years has been the bitter geopolitical conflicts that have nothing to do with the quality of wine! Now is the time to discover these great values from this unknown winery!
