Edi Simčič Triton 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.

A harmonic balance of international and local varieties – Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Ribolla Gialla – a third of each. Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc make it powerful and concentrated, whereas Ribolla smoothes them, making the wine more approachable, mineral, with a local character. At the same time, it expands the wine and enhances its complexity. The potential of aging is up to ten years.
