Bolfan Primus Rajnski Rizling 2008, Croatia (£11.10, or £9.95 as part of a case of 12 bottles, Jascots, jascots.co.uk)
The wines of the former Yugoslavia tend to get lumped in with the rest of the old Eastern Bloc as bargain-basement fodder. In fact, the best wines of Slovenia and Croatia are capable of much more than that. This rich, honeyed but graceful white is a case in point. With its elegant, dancing acidity, it's a dry riesling to match many from Alsace or Germany's Pfalz region.
My apologies for the late reply, but we have had many samples to taste, and I was out of the office for two weeks recently.
Thank you for sending the samples, which we finally tasted this morning. I am glad to say that the team were impressed with the quality of the wines, and we are particularly interested in the 2010 Libertin Pinot Gris and 2008 Primus Riesling.
As the quality of the wines is very exciting, and we would like to start creating a market for them in our country. We would start with an order of 50 cases of each of the two wines, and grow things from there.
I look forward to hearing from you.

My name is Mr. Cameron Wilson. I will be opening an upscale wine bar in Dubrovnik and I am currently in the process of creating my wine list.
A friend of mine had purchased a few bottles of your wine at the Mediterranean Fair in Dubrovnik. We recently tried your wine and we were all quite impressed. It was wonderful.
As I said earlier, we truly enjoyed your wine. I hope to develop a relationship with your winery so that I may offer your wines in my wine bar. Thank you for your time, I look forward to speaking with you soon - Hvala!
“Od vina Libertin koja su naravno sva dobra, meni se najviše dopao Sauvignon koji ima odlične mirise, a okus je dosta okruglast i daje lijep osjećaj u grlu.
Naravno najljepši osjećaj se dobije kad se to vino pije u klijeti koja upotpunjuje ugođaj svojom originalnošću i prilagođenošću gostu.
Ako se tomu još doda nezaboravni osmijeh uljudnih domaćina, onda je doživljaj zaista potpun.
S osobitim poštovanjem,
I spent a couple of days in Hotel Sipan and in the Pjatr Restaurant I tasted your Sauvignon Blanc 2007 which was very exciting.
My question is, do you ship also to end consumers to Germany or do you have dealers in Germany?
Thank you and regards,
First of all I want to tank you again for the bottle of wine, I tested it and I must admit that is really a fantastic wine with a good smell and a wonderful fruity dry test.
I wish you all the best for this new challenge.
Have a nice week end
