The 2017 Vitovska is decidedly savory and spicy, wafting up a beguiling display of sour apple, pear and lemon, complemented by hints of white pepper. It’s soft and almost fleshy upon entry, yet it quickly firms up through a display of brisk acids and minerals that nearly sizzle in the mouth. Inner florals dominate the finale, along with a tug of residual tension. The Skerlj Vitovska is fermented in oak vats for three weeks without temperature control before being moved to barrel for another twenty-four months. (Eric Guido, Vinous, January 2021)
