Wines - Pavo

Our wines are the product of hard work, years of experience and extensive knowledge. There are three product lines: Kristančič, Pavo and Medana. While they are very different from each other, they also share the characteristics that make our wines so distinctive. This variety means that we are able to accommodate all enthusiasts, from those just starting out to experienced connoisseurs. All our wines are dry, young and fresh, yet they offer a full, harmonious mouth-feel, with just the right amount of acidity.

Pavo White 2011

The gentle yellow colour of Pavo White reflects the fact that this full-bodied wine is matured in barrels; and this close relationship with the barrel is also what gives the wine its wonderful aroma, which has notes of white fruit, vanilla and coconut. The beautiful structure is marked by wood tannins which, while somewhat excitable, nevertheless offer a great deal to the palate. The acids are prominent and enhance the wine’s character, while the mouth-feel is dry. As it ages, the wine will become somewhat softer, while retaining its wonderful balance.

Serve chilled at 16–18˚C (61–64 °F). This wine goes well with baked polenta with cheese and prosciutto, grilled turkey steaks, and cod.

Pavo Red 2013

Pavo Red is ruby-red in colour, with a prominent fruity aroma of blackcurrant and strawberry that intertwines and blends harmoniously with the aroma of the oak barrels in which it is matured. It is very spicy in the mouth, with strong tannins and a relatively prominent taste of alcohol. With an aftertaste that is long and fruity, this is a majestic wine that is starting to come into its own.

Chardonnay Pavo 2013

This wine is distinguished by its straw-yellow colour that will often shows flashes of gold. The tears clearly show that this is a wine with character. The aroma is reminiscent of dried fruit and roast meat smoke , with just a hint of white pepper. It is succulent, balanced and rounded in the mouth, with heaps of vanilla. Its citrusy, dried-orange-peel aftertaste is seductive yet wonderfully fresh. The taste is soft and highly pleasing.

Serve at 14–18 °C (57–64 °F). The perfect accompaniment to smoked trout with polenta, veal steak with mushrooms, prosciutto, Wiener schnitzel and oven-baked fish with potatoes.

Cabernet sauvignon Pavo 2011

The distinctive deep ruby-red colour of this wine occasionally flashes with fiery tones, with the large tears testament to its richness. The distinct yet complex aroma of fruits and spices, and the seemingly inextinguishable bouquet, make every sip a fresh and luxuriant experience, at once beautiful and beautifully balanced – this is an impeccably well-behaved wine. The tannins, while prominent, provide a velvety sweetness, and are balanced in turn by the acidity, turning the wine into a dynamic equilibrium of taste rather than a simple blend. A product of good fortune allied with skill and experience, Cabernet Sauvignon Pavo is a formidable wine indeed, and one we feel you can lay down with confidence.

Served at 16–20 ˚C (60–68 ˚F), this wine is the perfect complement to dried meats, young goat in blueberry sauce, roast lamb, venison, grilled meat, and spicy beef steaks.
