Tasting Notes: Our idea behind FULL CIRCLE wines is to return to the ancient wine making traditions and old school wines our region was known for in the Middle Ages. Fermented with no added yeast and bottled without filtrations, these wines truly represent the terroir of Dolenjska.

Frankinja-Gamay is a fusion of indigenous Slovenian Frankinja (aka Blaufrankisch) and Gamay, a variety of French origin and is product of minimal intervention winemaking. The blend delivers aromas of red berries, plumbs, pepper, and on the palate,. the perfect balance of forest berry aromas and a soft texture bursting with freshness and youthful acidity.

Serve with a touch of chill and crush with skirt steak tacos, pork bbq, any sort of cheesy burgers, or refreshingly on its own.
