Pear skin, ripe apples, lime zest and subtle minerality are weaved together in this copper coloured bottle of delight from Verus, our friends in Slovenia. Under-the-radar this might be, but boy does it over delivery on quality. There is a sweetness to the core fruit in this wine that makes it so moreish and food-friendly. Slovenia is steeped in winemaking history, so much of which was lost to the Communist regime, and today there is a band of young, independent winemakers who fly the flag for the quality of years gone by. Verus are one of these said winemakers, a team of three lifelong friends who are crafting varietal whites that stand up to the best in Europe. This Pinot Gris nods towards its cousins further West but the texture, combined with powerful mineral-tinged fruit character make this a unique drop. A great pair to grilled white fish but also standing up to white meats, get this chilled down and wow your pals with the best of Slovenia's wine scene.
The Verus winery was set up in 2007 by three friends, all of whom have long family histories of winemaking in Styria, Slovenia’s northeastern wine region. Today, Verus is the most dynamic winery in the area and they have become synonymous with the region. Known for their varietal white wines with natural acidity, precise fruit notes and wonderful purity, Verus should be on everyone’s must-try list for an off-the-beaten track alternative to the favourites in western Europe.
