Hi. This is my first post so please be gentle with me!
I’m just back from a long weekend in Bratislava and wanted to share my experience of some very nice Slovakian white wines (Slovakia is also home to some excellent beer, but that’s another story). Sadly, none of them appear in the Society’s latest list, but maybe one day?!
The first is called Karpatska Perla, Veltinske Zelene, which is essentially a Gruner Vetliner. Lovely with fish. Slovakia is also big on Riesling, with various varieties: rynsky and vlatsky. Slovakia also produces Muller-Thurgau wine, more commonly associated with Germany. All are light and fruity.
Finally, we tried a wine called Devin, which is off-dry with a floral bouquet. Delicious.
