Kobal Sparkling wines are made from perfectly ripe grapes shaped by both old school and modern technological approaches in the cellar. Secondary fermentation begins directly from the grape juice sealed in a special tank. Pressure and effervescence are maintained till the end of fermentation. This approach allows the winemaker to produce fresh, varietal focused, yet sophisticated sparkling wine.

100% Yellow Muscat
Moscato Giallo or Yellow Muscat is a white Italian wine grape variety that is a member of the Muscat family of grapes. Known for its large deep cluster of loose, deep-yellow berries and golden colored wine, Moscato Giallo is grown mostly in northern Italy where it is most often used to produce passito style dessert wines. The grape is also planted in Croatia where it is known as Muškat žuti.
Moscato Giallo tends to produce deeply colored, golden wines that have moderate acidity levels but are highly aromatic. The grape is often used to produce sweet dessert wines, often by the passito or "straw wine" method. The wine can be produced as a varietal but is sometimes blended with other Muscat varieties.
Slovenian Styria (Štajerska) wine–growing region and Haloze subdistrict rank among the most exclusive wine-growing sites in Europe. These outstanding sites had been renowned for millennia, as there are evidences about continuous tradition of viticulture and viniculture in this area from the Roman period, throughout the centuries to the time of Austro-Hungarian Monarchy, and to this day.
The soil is rich in marl and vines are more than 35 years old in average, so their roots go deep into the ground, therefore they can absorb a rich minerality of the soil and accumulate it in grapes that finally results in full and sophisticated taste.
Tasting: lemon, lime, bright minerality, dry finish
Pairing: Cream sauces, fresh salads
