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%
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.

Herbert Zillinger Weissburgunder “Horizont”
The aromatic arc stretches to very ripe. In this spicy herb garden, fennel and anise set the tone. Subtle fruit provides the backbone. A pleasant bready spice on the palate leaves space for a refreshing chalky minerality. Excellent with asparagus and summer dishes.Other Single Varietal WhiteUnoaked WhitesAustria2015750 ml11%-12.5%
