Stanko Radikon was one of the natural wine world's true icons and his legendary work in the Oslavia region of Friuli, right by the border with Slovenia in Italy's northeast is now being carried on by his son Sasa. The wines benefit from what a soil type the Slovenian's call 'Ponca', a complex mix of sandstone, clay and marine deposits that produces powerful, mineral rich wines. This is a one-off from one of the most original winemakers out there, in other words, a wine not to be missed. A blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay, this spent four months on skins, four years in old casks and four years in bottle before release. Only made in the very best years, this triumph of patience is quintessentially Radikon, with an impossibly complex nose of wild fruits, flowers and nuts and a finish that seems to go on forever. Utterly unique.

Radikon

Stanko Radikon is one of the natural wine world’s true icons and his legendary work in the Oslavia region of Friuli, right by the border with Slovenia in Italy’s northeast is now being carried on by his son Sasa. The wines benefit from what a soil type the Slovenian’s call ‘Ponca’, a complex mix of sandstone, clay and marine deposits that produces powerful, mineral rich wines. With long macerations and time ageing in old oak casks, they produce wines of rare intensity.
