Getting these magical wines to the UK after Brexit has been a labour of love and to celebrate their arrival we are giving them their own showcase. Prekmurje, where the wines are from, is right in the heart of Europe at the point where Slovenia meets Austria and Hungary. The state of the art winery sits next to a pinnacled chateau built as a hunting lodge in the 19th century by the local Hungarian counts and it hints at the story of tradition and renewal in this place that is at both remote and at the crossroads of three countries with long and rich winemaking histories. Winemaker Uros Vacl is sensitive and perfectionistic seeking purity and a feeling of power without heaviness in the wines. The white blend, based on Welschriesling, is textural and gastronomic, while the Sauvignon shows a unique character more reminiscent of Pessac-Leognan or Friuli than anything new world and the red blend offers a tangy, peppery, but structured rendition of Blaufrankisch and Zweigelt We hope that Uros will be able to join us to introduce the wines.
