TILIA WINES – philosophy of bottling two different lines of wine, both based on fruit character;
SUNSHINE TILIA collection, equipped with a yellow- orange label representing young yearly fresh wines with character based on freshness and variety characteristics. Fresh fruit primary aromas are dominated. Wines keep their unique fresh and fruity character for about 2 years after bottling and are produced to drink young.
GOLDEN TILIA is collection equipped with black-gold label that represents special wines aged in Slovenian oak barrels. Wines are based on the grape with prolonging maturation in the vineyard. By breathing through the oak wines get developed in 2 –3 years and are bottled after that. Ready to drink are able to be aged another 5-10 years.
