White blend Muki from Mukenauer 2015, Svečina Slovenia

We are finishing Mukenauer’s wine review with the white blend Muki, another affordable easy drinking wine from Slovenia north-eastern region Svečina.

Mukenauer is a small, family producer of mostly white wines, characterized by cool freshness, lightness and moderate content of alcohol. It is located in Svečina, a region north of Maribor, close to the border with Austria. Region is well known for its fresh, sharp white wines. Svečina is especially worth to visit during the wine festivals, which will be also published on our side.

 

 

Alcohol 11.5%, Dry.

Pale lemon colour.

Nose: middle intense muscat smell, hints of ripe pears and apples

Taste:  fresh, moderate acidity and a tiny bit of bitterness (not sure where this is coming from, but we have noted similar thing in the few wines from this region – is so limited that is not disturbing however)

This wine is slightly different from the other 2 we have tasted. it is still fresh young wine, yet it is much more aromatic, less acidic and slightly more sweet.

Wine can be bought at the Mukenauer’s wine estate. For more information please use the links below:
