When it comes to wine, Slovenia is small but mighty. This tiny collection of rugged mountains and misty forested valleys somehow supports 2500 wineries with a population just over two million, which means roughly one out of every 800 Slovenians is a winemaker, a rate far higher than in Italy or France. Slovenia is inching its way into the culinary spotlight thanks to the work of chefs like Ana Ros and Janez Bretovz, and right alongside comes the wine. This one is made by Peter Gönc, an iconoclast, music lover, and winemaker, in no particular order, and his wines take no detours or shortcuts. When he makes Red Wine, it is inky and tannic. When he makes White, it is rich like tropical fruit punch. When he makes Rose, like this Cuvee Anna – a blend of the local Zametna Crnina grape with help from Pinot Noir and Blaufrankish – it makes your hair stand on end with electricity. If the aroma was a sound it would leave your ears ringing with ruby red grapefruit, white strawberry, raspberry, pear, flint, sandstone and orange bitters. The palate comes through with the same energy. Salt crusted stones and peach pit, Rainier cherry and grapefruit, lavender and cantaloupe and apple blossoms that sing the body electric. Pair this with shellfish or Moroccan tagine, but whatever you do, make sure the meal has a strong enough personality to handle this wine.
