Enjoy a pure dose of vinous novelty in the shape of this extraordinary Slovenian white. This wine is not just a novelty,however, it’s a thrillingly, uniquely delicious wine. Zelen is a variety from the Vipava Valley in Slovenia. In the 1980s, there was only 1ha of it in existence. Now there’s around 80ha. ‘Zelen’ means ‘green in Slovenian – and indeed if wine made from this grape is left unfiltered, it will emerge with a distinct emerald green tint. Expect a delicately perfumed nose of white flowers, green apple, then jolts of grapefruit, lemon, apple and floral notes on the palate, and a racy, saline edge. This would be a wonderful wine to pair with oysters – or other shellfish for that matter.
