50% of the grapes were destemmed, lightly crushed then macerated with full skin contact for 3 weeks at low temperatures, until fully dry and malolactic fermentation is complete. The other 50% of the grapes fermented by carbonic maceration where the undestemmed grapes were placed in 500 kg vats and then sealed to ferment under natural preassure of CO2. No added yeast, SO2 or additives used. The different varieties are then blended and before a natural cold stabilisation, and bottled unfiltered, unfined and with with no SO2 addition.
This is a blend of Feteasca Regala 51%, Chardonnay 15%, Sauvignon Blanc 19% & Tamioasa Romaneasca 15%. Dark straw colour with orange hints, the nose is a delicate mélange of quince, poire william and a hint of vanilla. A complex and structured wine, with elegant but discreet fruit flavours of stone fruits, backed up with a powerful tannin structure and long finish. A natural minimal intervention wine which is well balanced and structured yet pure and incredibly fresh.
