This is cool. Liam and Sinead Cabot have been making wine in Slovenia for 6 years while also running a successful distribution business out of the West of Ireland. They are made in tiny quantities, each bottle is numbered by hand on the back label. The wines have really started to gain some traction now with one Jancis Robinson particularly losing her shit:

Smells like apples and blackcurrents. Pencil lead and peonies on a warm night. Intense fruit and flavour, piercing elegance and pin-point refinement. It curves a long, lean arc in the mouth. The tannins have the supple, brushed-velvet softness - but presence - of a kid glove. It's embryonic, folded origami tight; you can almost feel the umbilical cord still there, attached to the vines it came from. And yet it's already articulate, already shaped, the pages of its future already waiting. 17/20 JANCIS ROBINSON

Good lord! Highly unusual to see Jancis write as if it's her last ever tasting note. The wines are deadly, even the packaging is deadly. John Wilson has also written extensively about them in the Irish Times and as he says, not because they are made by Irish, because they're so good. STSWine
