Description

Alamina Feteasca Regala

Alamina Feteasca Regala has a lovely citrus/pineapple character with a hint of white-pepper like spice. The lively fruit salad continues onto the palate which finishes with a very slight touch of sweetness and a slight grippiness, which is unusual in white wines, but a typical part of Feteasca Regala.

Alamina is a small project working with international, as well indigenous Romanian, varietals carefully selected from re-established vineyards. Utilising innovative winemaking techniques the aim is to preserve the freshness and fruit from each variety and show their wonderful nature such as the stunning local Feteasca Neagra, which is full of dark fruits and wonderful undertones of minerality.

In the vineyard- over 600 hectares of vines have been re-planted using the highest quality vine stock from France and Italy, and all the agricultural equipment used for farming the vineyards has also been replaced, with the most modern and high performance tractors and spraying machinery.

Winemaking team, Hartley Smithers from Australia, and Nora Iriate from Spain, together veterans of over 50 harvests in all the world’s wine producing regions, oversee the production of all the wines from grapes to bottle with a fanatical attention to detail. The philosophy is simple- to apply the absolute best production methods to every single wine,- to enhance and preserve the natural quality of the grapes- and provide a consistently high quality product every year for every level of wine they make.

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.

To a certain extent you are as Romania has a history of winemaking stretching back millenia and it was this potential that has driven this dynamic duo to dedicate their lives to driving forward Romanian winemaking to it’s current state of rude health.

A 20 million euro investment in the vineyards and brand new winery, as well as the recruitment of seasoned new world winemakers, has enabled Cramele Recas to produce top quality reds and whites from a broad range of varietals at very competitive prices.

Domaine Gayda Flying Solo Grenache Blanc Viognier IGP Pays D’Oc 2017

Fresh, intensely floral, yet very fruity - apple blossom and lemon aromas give way to peach, orange and all manner of tropical fruit nuances, leading to an intense grapiness on the palate. This really is packed with flavour, combining a touch of richness with gorgeous acidity and a subtle herbiness. A beautifully made wine of real elegance - and brilliant value for money.

Aromo Viognier 2018

Full bodied white with a rich background of savoury notes, a very aromatic peach and mayblossom fruit character, but without any sweetness. No oak and fresh fruit makes this wine a real winner. The Aromo wines have a great charm and appeal and this is no exception.

Dandelion Vineyards Enchanted Garden of the Eden Valley 2018

The appearance of Dandelion Vineyards Enchanted Garden of the Eden Valley Riesling foretells the pristine and unalloyed quality of its fruit. Classic aromatics of citrus zest, lemon foliage and hints of dragon fruit flowers are etched by a clear steely minerality. This is an attractively textural wine displaying the variety's intense purity. Bone dry, its structure and length is underpinned by austere acidity.

Domaine Patrick Vauvy Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Attractively aromatic, rich dry Sauvignon showing the fruit character of fully ripe grapes. Exotic fruits in abundance on the nose and just a hint of mint. On the palate its fresh and tangy and the finish is fruity and moreish. The obvious accompaniment to asparagus with hollandaise but should be tried with goats cheese and works well with tuna dishes.

Domaine Pelle Menetou Salon Morogues 2018

This wine has a subtle, pure nose with aromas of white flowers and citrus fruits. The taste is racy and crystalline, clear with a citrus fruit taste initially followed by a saline and mineral finish. Nothing overly exuberant: just clarity and precision.

Peter Lehmann Margaret Semillon 2012

While bottle ageing in the Tanunda cellars, the wine has developed an attractive vibrant green/gold colour. The bouquet shows hints of lemon flower together with some waxy, honeyed development so typical of great, aged Semillon. The grapes were picked early in the season to retain more natural acidity and the palate is dry with a zesty finish.
