The Radikon Pinot Grigio is Sasa Radikon's (Stanko Radikon's son) personal project. These wines are fresher and released earlier so you can still expect a challenging Orange wine, but it's much more alive and vibrant. The Pinot Grigio is a little higher in acidity so I do insist on drinking it with food (the Slatnik is a bit rounder and easier). This wine comes in a 750ml bottle whhich can be easily distinguished from the standard cellar releases in 500ml. - Chris L

Details

Stanilaus, or "Stanko", Radikon was a maverick in a land of mavericks. The town of Oslavia, on a relatively tiny stretch of hills north of the border town of Gorizia in the Isonzo zone of Friuli, is home to a number of talented and individualistic wine makers.

Stanko's philosophy was the pursuit of absolute "naturalness" in his wines. They are interesting, complex examples of what has come to be known, in reference to the ancestral origins of the winemaker working in this style and their geographic proximity to the neighbouring country, as the "Slovenian" style of Friuli wines – namely hand-harvesting, extended skin maceration, large, older barrel fermentations without temperature control, no added yeasts or enzymes and no use of sulphur.

The vineyards were originally planted by Stanko's grandfather Franz Mikulus with the local favorite, the Ribolla Gialla grape. In 1948, Stanko’s parents, who had inherited the property from his mother’s father, planted Merlot, Tocai Friulano and Pinot Grigio. Today, son Sasa maintains the family's land as his father Stanko has now passed away.
