The Gašper wine estate is a joint venture between a local cooperative and the Carman family, who have been in the hospitality and wine business for over 50 years. All picking is done by cooperative partners, family members and friends, which allows for a careful selection of fruit that enhances the quality of the final wine.
Goriška Brda is blessed with a climate ideally suited to viticulture, with its proximity to both the Adriatic Sea and the Alps providing dry, warm summers with cooling breezes during the crucial ripening period which retain acidity and brings the aromatic. Their vineyard (situated at altitude from 80-200 above sea level) are between 10 and 30 years old and characterised by its ‘opoka’ marl soil and excellent sun exposure on its terraced, hillside rows.
Aromatic, perfumed nose of red and dark fruit with notes of capsicum and black pepper. The wine has lovely, supple tannins and great structure, with a long, consistent finish. Impressive. Gašper believes that Cabernet Franc is one of most suitable red varieties for Goriška Brda terroir. It shows great red fruit character, freshness and ripe, soft tannins.
