Alamina, Feteasca Neagra, Viile Timisului, Romania

Regular price £9.99

Take a walk on the wild side with this fruit driven Romanian red -  dark berry and cherry fruits, creating mouthwatering flavours.

Alamina's intention is to showcase the very best of what Romania can offer. Premium, indigenous varietals's such as Feteasca Neagra from Recas' best vineyards and Pinot Noir and Pinot Grigio from carefully selected bunches of grapes. As you walk through the rolling vineyards of the 700 hectare Cramele Recas estate, two things are inescapable. The first is the scale of the transformation that Englishman Philip Cox and his wife Elvira have managed to achieve, replanting 700 hectares of decrepit vineyards and replacing them with immaculately tended sites the equal of anywhere else in the world. The second is that if you didn't know where you were, you'd be convinced you were in Tuscany or any other "Classic" wine producing region.

Tasting Note: Rich and ripe, loaded with dark berry and cherry fruit, weaving in undertones of mineral and vanilla bean as the finish sails on and on. This creates a great balance of power and finesse, the tannins are polished.
