Edi Simcic, Tokata
(toh-KAH-tah)

 

Tasting Notes: As many know, the grape can no longer be called “Tocai” in Slovenia (because of confusion with Hungarian Tokaji), so estates are scrambling to re-name their classic Tocais. Simcic now calls his, “Tokata,” and it is a showstopper. With commendable, well-structured acidity, this wine offers creamy notes of pear, almond, and nectarine, with a density that will allow it to age for 10 years or more. In classic Simcic style, this Tokata is deftly barrel fermented, emphasizing the natural richness associated with Tocai.
