Peru turned out to be spotless (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

pure

Here is my best explanation:

'spotless' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'peru turned out' is the subsidiary indication.

'turned out' indicates an anagram.

'peru' anagrammed gives 'pure'.

'to be' is the link.

(Other definitions for pure that I've seen before include "Virtuous", "Untainted", "Unsoiled", "Nothing but; innocent", "Unsullied", "Virginal", "Unadulterated", "Undefiled", "Free of extraneous elements of any kind" and "Innocent; not mixed".)
