Virtus Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc is considered a classic among aristocratic white wines. Like every great variety of vineyards, Sauvignon Blanc is the “baby” of the land on which it grows. Its aroma is permeated with an unusually strong varietal note which changes depending on the region in which it grows.

Character
Virtus’s Sauvignon Blanc wine is dominated by the aroma of the elder flower and melons, supplemented by discrete mineral notes and tones of mown grass and herbs: basil, coriander, i.e. parsley, chives, dill, marjoram, rosemary, sage, thyme, mint and nettle.

It has a distinctive bouquet, exceptional freshness and lightness, with well-balanced acids and alcohol. The wine is dry, of light yellow colour with greenish reflections, crystal clear, and when tasted it feels full, fresh and crisp. The richness and fullness of the wine with discreet shades of vanilla, which further refine its aromatic complex, are complemented by the fact that one part fermented and aged in barriques and French oak barrels.

Food matches for Sauvignon Blanc include:
White meat, including turkey, pork, seafood and freshwater fish, crabs, clams, shrimps and lobster. Cheeses – soft, salty and sour. Vegetables and vegetarian food – sautéed green vegetables, cucumber salad with yogurt and dill, and pasta with zucchini, béchamel sauce, Parmesan cheese and mushrooms.

Virtus Rose

Rosé and pink wines are not as popular as white or red ones, probably due to lack of information about them. Those familiar with these plentiful, natural wines never diminish their value, both because of the complex manufacturing technology and their magnificent flavour and the richness in antioxidants that help us with retaining our youth.

Rosé is wine that is rightly linked to summer and the heat because it can be very cool without any fear of losing “its body.” Rosé goes well with different foods. Because of this particular feature, many treat it with certain mistrust. But in the last ten years, winemakers have been successfully coping with such a reputation of Rosé, so today the growing popularity of this wine does not surprise anyone.

Character
With its bright pink rose colour, with reddish reflections, crystal clear, it appears that the pride of Virtus Winery is our real artwork. Virtus’s Rosé has intense aroma of red berries, strawberries and red currants originating from Prokupac variety and spicy fragrance which is credited to Cabernet Sauvignon. The small amount of residual sugar does not interrupt its fruitiness and freshness which prevail, thus creating a real harmony in the flavour of this wine.

Grape varieties
Prokupac 70% and Cabernet Sauvignon 30%

Food matches for Rose include:
Seafood, grilled chicken, light snacks

Virtus Prokupac

Prokupac is an old Serbian native variety, indigenous to our region. Many winemakers, faithful to the Serbian tradition have been renewing this variety thus contributing to and developing the domestic wine identity.

Character
Virtus Winery’s Prokupac is wine of deep red colour, with the aroma of ripe red fruit, complemented with the aromas of cherry liqueur and cocoa with specific mineral notes characteristic for our ‘territory.’ The taste is fruity, soft, with pronounced sweet tannins, well fitted to this elegant and fine balanced wine, while the aging of a part of this wine in oak barriques has contributed to its elongated finish.

Fermentation and aging
Fermented in large oak barrels and aged partially in stainless steel with the major part aged in Serbian oak barriques.

Food matches for Prokupac include:
Red meats, game, roast lamb.

Serving temperature
16-18 °C

About us

Company details

Virtus Vinery
It was founded at the end of 2010 and is located on the territory of the Mlava region – Požarevac wine-growing hills. The vineyards cover a 27.5 hectares land complex in Viteževo, between Žabari and Svilajnac, 15 kilometres from the Beograd-Niš motorway. During 2011 and 2012 we cultivated grapevine seedlings in the area of 15 hectares and started with the phase-construction of the winery complex. The major part of the technological and administrative facilities has been completed at present. The founders of the winery are a group of good friends, enthusiasts, who have been brought together by a shared love of wine and the idea that only team work can create good results.
 
With a desire to get prime quality wines, we have imported grape seedlings from France and have established vineyards with the following varieties: Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Marselan and Prokupac.

Fantastic geo-climate conditions of this region allow for grapevine cultivation today, as well as thousands of years ago, which is corroborated by archaeological excavation of sites from the Antiquity. The presence of grapevine in Serbia has also been proven by the fossil remains from the Bronze Age.

Today we also bear witness to a new wave in wine production. By relying on our history and tradition, we try to pick up on the trend in the development of the Serbian viniculture. We hope to make our wines famous even outside our country and that we will manage to convey a part of its spirit through the drops of our wines.

With the slogan “Read the wine – taste the history” we wanted to remind people that our country has been a part of the great Danube civilization, of the then technologically most advanced society in the world, before the Ancient Rome and Greece, before Mesopotamia. The Danube culture has left us testimonies of the roots of literacy – a script or symbols that date way back before the cuneiform script. Our renowned painter Isidora Ivanović has used these symbols and a stylized figure in our labels with a desire to make our wine lovers – history lovers. The most beautiful remains from that age are the figurines that have inspired the appearance of our wines and our motto. They depict figures with large eyes, symbolizing care and attention, and they all have broadly spread arms as a symbol of cordiality and warm welcome.
