Hello everyone! My name is Bill and I am the wine buyer for our stores. Each week I select special wines to bring to your attention; sometimes from a given region, a specific producer or even wines that have a particular style or grape varietal in common. This week I have something very special. For the first time ever in Minnesota we will be presenting the wines of the Verus Winery in Ormoz, Slovania! Slovenia shares a border with Italy, Austria, Hungary and Croatia. It has a long history of viticulture and winemaking and is becoming an excellent source for clean, crisp and fruity white wines. These are great wines for salads, seafood, cheeses, roast chicken or just on their own. They represent some of the best values in wine today.Cheers!



Pinot Gris Ormoz Slovania 2013
Fresh pear, gentle spices and citrus flavors on the nose, the wine has soft acid, stone fruit character and minerality on the palate. There is a small amount of residual sugar so the wine is off-dry and absolutely delicious.



Riesling Ormoz Slovania 2014
Verus-Riesling_WEB Despite lovely youthful Riesling character the wine is already showing great potential. It is developing an intense lime zest and peach bouquet with hints of basil perfume which follows through to the palate showing length and elegance with a lively crisp style and beautiful balance.



Sauvignon Blanc Ormoz Slovania 2014
Vibrant fruit with the classic gooseberry, passionfruit and nettles aromas; good depth of flavor and length. Crisp and elegant on the palate.



Furmint Ormoz Slovania 2014
verus-Furmint_WEB Fragrant grass, apple, and peach on the nose. Stone fruit combined with gentle oak and lively acid are nicely balanced on the palate. This noble wine shows delicate but unusually persistent flavor ideally served with classic seafood.
