Selected estates

15 June, 2007

Edi Sim?i? (Brda)

All French oak, more "international", aiming for Slovenia's first "icon wine" with his Bordeaux blend.

Šcurek (Brda)

Look out for an extraordinary 16 per cent abv Pikolet, smelling of old roses and lavender.

?otar (Kras)

Farms organically on rich Terrarossa soils. Sladko is a delightful passito Malvasia.

Rojac (Istria)

Investing heavily in cellars, 50 per cent of plantings here are Refosk (Refosco).

Sutor (Vipava)

Excellent white wines - and a highly promising Pinot Noir programme on stream.

Tilia

Generally fresher, more commercial range. Good quality, and 2005 Rebula a star.
