Guerila Pinela has a colour that is straw yellow – sparkling. The smell is very intense and fine. The complexity of tropical fruit aromas stand out. The aroma of grapefruit, pineapple, citrus fruits and dried flowers in the background. A charming full-bodied wine with an emphasis on freshness and a distinct minerality.
Guerila is the story of passionate people who love true wine. Owner and winemaker, Zmago Petrič and the family’s winery is located in Vipavska dolina, a district of Primorska grape growing region in Slovenia. Guerila was formed in 2005, when Zmago took over the estate from his father and planted new vineyards with loacal varieties, which has now grown to 10ha and around 43,000 vines. Growing Zelen, Pinela, Rebula, Malvasia for whites and Merlot, Barbera and Cabernet Franc for red wines they are proud of the fact that indigenous varieties like Zelen and Pinela grow only in the region of Vipavska dolina and no where else on the planet. From the very beginning, their practice is to work organically and biodynamically. “Guerila”, means revolution, and their philosophy is to devote their energy to local grape varieties, producing wines that have not been subjected to chemical treatment, and have respect for the natural environment.
Viticulture procedures follow the biodynamic calender and is simple, with the focus on allowing the plants to yield only what it can naturally produce, other than by addition of green manure, biodynamic compost and biodynamic pesticides. All grapes are hand picked.
Hand harvest of biodynamicly produced grapes. Four-hour maceration of crushed grapes, pressing and must decantation. Spontaneous fermentation with natural yeast already present on the grapes. Nine-month maturation of the wine on the lees in stainless steel tanks. Bottling according to Maria Thun moon calendar with minimal addition of sulphur.
