Chenins (Vouvray, for example) have the weight and texture to mary with complex

food.

The flavours of the Mediterranean, a mixture of ripe warmth and garrigue herbs,

imprints itself on the best wines from this region. There is a medley of unusual grape

varieties from aromatic honeyed Viognier, whose spiritual home is Condrieu and

fellow Rhone cohorts, Marsanne and Roussanne, to the Languedoc mainstay of

Grenache Blanc.

Germany produces some of the world's very finest white wines, presenting natural,

Grapey richness complemented by racy acidity. Riesling is a king here, offering purity

and precision. At their best such wines can be electric and the perfect complement to

a vast array of dishes and some trickier ingredients.

Some rare grape varieties are found in this country producing some fine unique

wines. Locally it is Zweigelt while Grüner Veltliner and Blaufränkisch are traditionally

as well grown in Austria's eastern neighbour countries.

Known mainly for its astonishing dessert wines we are these days able to find some

surprisingly fine dry wines in Hungary. Cuvée 113 consists of Furmint, Hárslevelü,

Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Yellow Muscat. A seamless blend that offers ripe stone

fruit, melon and the herbal quality of the Hárslevelü grape. Complex and distinctive,

yet mouth-wateringly crisp and refreshing, this is a great example of new-wave

Hungarian white wine.
