While winemaker Saša Radikon doesn’t change much to his father’s flagship bottlings, the ‘S’ series of wines have been his brainchild since day one. Guided by the core winemaking principles of his late father, these ‘S’ wines serve as a bright contrast to the intensity of those 500 and 1000ML bottlings.

 While it is still an ‘orange’ wine, the time spent on the skins is roughly 2 weeks, as opposed to 3-4 months for the flagship wines. This, coupled with a shorter aging period, produce a wine that is far more lifted and easier to understand. Highly aromatic with notes of tangerine, stone fruit, dried herbs, and white flowers. The acid is charged, carrying with it a mineral-rich, medium-bodied juicy texture before the tannic bite finishes with delicate floral notes with an unexpected hint of sour raspberries. A fresh, vibrant addition to an already impactful series of Radikon wines.
