"I’ve dug these wines from this journeyman winemaker in Slovenia. Here’s a zweigelt, styled au naturale, for your drinking pleasure. Gabernik sounds like the name of a dog sent to space.
Chalky and sappy, sour cherry orientated with some game meat notes, fennel, roast capsicum, paprika, doing a lot here and feeling mighty original. Has nice, slurpy texture, a little herbal tang builds to a significant piquancy to finish, but feels decent in the mode of the wine. Savoury red, but fresh too. It’s got a vibe"
