Verus Furmint, Slovenia
Each year the wonderful people at Verus produce consistently dazzling, pure, clean, fruity, mouthwatering wines.
One previous vintage was selected as Top 25 Whites for Christmas 2012 by Jancis Robinson MW Financial Times. But there are many more such recommendations.Other Single Varietal WhiteUnoaked WhitesSlovenia2016750 ml13-13.5%
Verus Pinot Gris, Slovenia
Yet another of that triumverate’s great wines. If you thought all Pinot Grigio was thin cheap and Italian, think again! This is rich, with pure, clean fruit and a lovely vibrant zestiness. Highly recommended.
Pinot Gris has a slightly pinkish flesh which can go darker in very hot years. 2016 was just one such year and you will notice a slightly pink hue to the wine. More industrial producers might “intervene” to strip the colour out, but at Verus they rightly celebrate the variations of the vintages!

Verus Riesling, Slovenia
Previous vintages much recommended. Such as;
The Guardian’s Fiona Beckett’s Best Bottles to take on a picnic;
“I love the fragrant, floral Verus Riesling from Slovenia – that’s one for sipping while you dabble your feet in a stream. It’s one of the excellent range of the same producer’s aromatic wines imported by The Real Wine Company.”
This particular varietal is a favourite of mine. Gets even better with a year or two bottle age.

Verus Sauvignon Blanc, Slovenia
Verus wines need little commentary. They are all superb, demonstrating what Jancis Robinson called “a purity of fruit” when we shipped their first ever vintage in 2008. Few more than this pure, dry, fruity Sauvignon Blanc.

Esona Single Vineyard Boutique Sauvignon Blanc
Pronounced “Air-Sor-Na” this Sauvignon Blanc is the best one I have tasted since we first shipped Zoetendal seven years ago! (remember that?) There is tiny production, just 9250 vines (2.66 hectares). Lovely rich, fat style which has developed into an almost Chablis-like minerality. Great food wine.Sauvignon BlancUnoaked WhitesSouth Africa2016750 ml11%-12.5%13-13.5%
Du Plevaux Madeleine Menanteau Sauvignon Blanc South Africa
Rich style of Sauvignon Blanc, classy Gold-medal winner at the 2018 Vitis Vinifera Awards. Made from the top selection of Sauvignon Blanc grapes on the farm each year, this is their top blend.

Du Plevaux Elizabeth Alberta Chenin Blanc/Viognier South Africa
Gold medal at 2018 Vitis Vinifera Awards. Chenin Blanc is South Africa’s “work-horse” white providing the bulk of many cheaper blends. However, there is a Chenin Blanc Society of winemakers dedicated to demonstrating just how good it can be when you put your mind, energy and application to it. Here’s one of those – rich, complex, minerally and with a hint of Viognier to round it off, it’s a delight. Eat with even quite rich foods or on its own.White BlendsRich WhitesSouth Africa2018750 ml13-13.5%
Morillon Blanc by Jeff Carrel
A trusted old friend….rich, fat, with just a hint of oak….I put this in the category of White Burgundy look-alikes. Not the lean Chablis style, but the richer Macon end of Burgundy. Grapes with a touch of botrytis (noble rot) make this a soft, satisfying white.
