Movia 2007 Veliko White (Brda)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $50

This has ebullient aromas of cherry blossom, grapefruit and yuzu peel. Structurally complex, this has concentrated flavors of sour plum and pink grapefruit. It’s brisk with acidity, and there’s a lavish minerality that lingers long on the finish.

Movia 2004 Veliko Red (Brda)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $50

Notes of mint and thyme add savory tones to bright, pristine flavors of cassis and black cherry in this blend of Merlot, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon. Structured and full bodied, this has warm oak tones and striking acidity. It’s delicious now, but it should continue to develop over the next five years.

Movia 2010 Ribolla Ribolla Gialla (Brda)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $30

Perfumed with scents of dried flowers, figs, cherries and tea, this round, voluptuous Ribolla is luscious and fruity. It’s dry, with a tea-leaf astringency that builds on the palate, and it finishes with a flurry of rose petals and caramelized honey flavors.

Movia 2007 Modri Ceglo Pinot Noir (Brda)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $40

Like all of Movia’s red wines, the Modri Ceglo is herbaceous on the nose and palate, with hints of menthol and bramble adding complexity to the crisp red-fruit flavors. The palate is ripe, silken and elegantly structured, with brisk acidity and whispers of graphite, soy and brine that linger long on the finish.

Movia 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon (Brda)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $38

Ripe and rich in texture, this powerful Slovenian Cabernet balances a bold black-cherry flavor with loads of savory dried herb, graphite and reverberating acidity. There’s a nervous quality about this wine that could smooth out with a good decant, or a few more years in a cellar.

Movia 2002 Sauvignon (Brda)

  1. $24

This Slovenian white shows exotic, unconventional aromas that land squarely in the realm of tropical fruit and flowers. Soft and creamy on the palate, with melon, honeycomb and just a spritz of lemon. Subtle and sleek on the finish as it gently drifts away. Quite interesting and satisfying. Imported by Domaine Select Wine Estates.

Movia 2010 Sauvignon (Brda)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $30

Intensely green and herbal on the nose, this has penetrating flavors of gooseberry, lavender, mint and grass. This Sauvignon Blanc, which was aged for two years in French barrique, is textural, with its hints of green-tea-like tannin.
