Verus

Verus was founded by three friends and winegrowers. They joined together their family vineyards, expertise and work, to open a wine cellar on the premises of a former bakery in the spring of 2007. They are united by their dedication to family traditions, since their parents and grandparents were closely linked to these vineyards and their wines. Verus means true, real, actual, as well as honest, genuine, unpretentious, fair. They strive to have this kind of attitude towards everyone and hope that their wines exhibit the same qualities. Using their expertise and meticulous work in the vineyard and wine cellar, they produce wines that unquestionably express the characteristics of the variety and vintage, as well as of the winegrowing region.

Chardonnay is the most widespread variety on the globe. It originates from France and was introduced to our regions in the 19th century. Here it was known as Burgunder or Morillon. As the growing conditions are similar to those in its homeland, it also became well-established here.The wine is characterized by an alluring fruity bouquet that has hints of apple, pear, melon, pineapple, banana or citrus fruits; overripe fruit may develop notes of dried fruit and honey. A full-bodied and elegant flavour with finer natural balancing acidity than many new world versions thanks to our cooler climate and longer growing season.

Of lively fruit character with the aroma of elderberry flowers, gooseberries, tropical fruit, nettles, pepper, black currant or mown grass. The wine is fresh, harmonious and of full taste.Sauvignon was introduced at the beginning of the 19th century and, in recent years, is justifiably becoming the leading variety in this region. Thanks to the sunny days and cold autumn nights, the conditions here are ideal.For a good Sauvignon, it is important to have steady growth, thorough pruning, good lighting and aeration of the canopy. A healthy grape, a well-chosen harvest time and precise work in the cellar ensure the good expression of the variety’s qualities.Verus Sauvignon comes from several vineyards, both old and young, on eastern, southern and western facing terrains. Therefore, by carefully selecting the time of harvest for each individual vineyard in each vintage, we can achieve the desired style of wine: the maximum intensity of the bouquet, an aroma of elderflowers, gooseberries, tropical fruit, nettles, capsicum, blackcurrant or cut grass. The wine is fresh, balanced and has a full-bodied flavour.

For numerous connoisseurs and wine enthusiasts, it represents the king of white wines due to its quality, unique aroma and bouquet. It ripens late, requires the best sites, a good autumn, as well as very careful and meticulous winemaking technique.It was introduced to our vineyards from the Rhineland in the beginning of the 19th century. It established its home here, and now, in addition to Furmint, can be found on the best sites. Verus’ vineyards, planted with Riesling, are over 30 years old. These old vines give smaller yields, but bear highly varietal, aromatic and rich wines.While young, our Riesling has a fresh, fruity aroma reminiscent of the scent of white peaches and acacia flowers. With aging, the wine develops new, complex notes of honey, cinnamon or dried apricots.

On the nose the wine expresses pleasant fruity character. On the palate you can find elegant combination of intense flavour and lovely gentle acid. The wine has beautiful ruby colour.Pinot Noir is one of the oldest varieties, having been described by the Roman writer, Pliny. It originates from Burgundy, where it is the most widespread red variety. It is also the basis for many prestigious Champagnes. It is a very demanding variety both to grow and to make well. It requires light, airy, well-drained soil in the best sites and the most meticulous approach from the winegrower.In view of this, we decided to include the Pinot Noir as the only red variety in out palette of wines. We first planted it in 2009 in Ivanjkovci and then in Jeruzalem in 2012.Verus’ first Pinot Noir is from 2011. Despite the young age of the vineyard, due to the low crop weight per vine and a good autumn, we were able to produce a beautiful ruby red wine with a bouquet reminiscent of raspberries, strawberries, cherries and redcurrant, followed by a full-bodied and mature flavour showing nuances of all these fruits.
