Straight From Transylvania!
50% from our Recas estate in Transylvania, and 50 % from the Pestera estate near the black sea, the grapes were harvested from 18 September till 6 October. Gently destemmed and crushed, the grapes were cold macerated for 2 days at 5°C before being inoculated with selected yeast for the alcoholic fermentation which took 3 weeks at 27°C. Gently pressed, centrifuged and then put through a full malolactic fermentation, the wine was then matured for 3 months with French oak staves.
This vibrant, floral aroma of spiced plums, vanilla toffees and peppery aromas with a silky, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a long, tangy raspberry finish with elegant tannins. Exceptionally tasty and nicely balanced for sipping or the table.
Dare we say it's Bloody Good!
