Edi Simčič Duet Lex 2012
The wine cellar grew with Edi Simčič and still carries his name, even though his son Aleks took over. "One motive, one creed: to do well whatever you do. Nature itself speaks to the one who can hear it. Changes are the only constant on this path from generation to generation". Edi Simčič is one of the Brda's most consistent wineries. Starting with less than 9 acres in 1990, the Simčič estate has gradually added neighboring plots; it now comprises a patchwork of about 30 acres of vines on the sloping hills to the south and west of the village. “It gives us a bit more possibility for selection of the grapes,” says Aleks Simčič.

Grapes are coming from selected vineyards that are 15 to 35 years old, 14 days of maceration, and 36 to 42 months of maturing in 100% new oak barrels that yield an open, clean wine, reminiscent of Bordeaux wines. The aging potential is 15 years. It has intensive ruby red color with a complex nose of black currant, fine tobacco, liquorice and intense spicy notes. Tannins are firm; some vintages take some time to soften up.
