Description

Umbrele Sauvignon Blanc

Umbrele Sauvignon Blanc is a deliciously refreshing Sauvignon Blanc bursting with zesty citrus character and a hint of exotic fruit

At Cramele Recas Englishman Philip Cox and his wife Elvira have replanted 700 hectares of decrepit vineyards and replaced them with immaculately tended sites the equal of anywhere else in the world.

A brand new winery, and the recruiting of seasoned new world winemakers, has enabled them to produce top quality reds and whites http://www.recaswine.ro/en/

Producer Profile For years the Chileans have propagated the myth that they alone are capable of producing quality, modern single vineyard wines at very affordable prices but the wines from Umbrele, hailing from the shadows of the Carpathian Mountains in Transylvania, demonstrate how wrong they were.

Massive investment in new vineyards and in the winery has resulted in beautifully fresh and fruity wines that would be enough to convince even Dracula of the error of his ways.

Viticulture Densely planted on hilly sites surrounding the winery at an altitude of 100m, the vines average 10 years old.

Trained using the Guyot method. Drip irrigation is used if absolutely necessary though is by no means used every year.

Winemaking Machine Harvested in the cool of the night in order to ensure the grapes reach the winery in the best possible condition.

De-stemming followed by very gentle pressing using a pneumatic press is followed by cold Maceration overnight in order to extract the maximum aromatics from the grapes.

Fermentation is in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at 14C. Oak Treatment No oak treatment.

Tasting Note Racy passion fruit, tangerine and gooseberry flavours are graceful and elegant, with a lovely, alive mouth feel and a medium body.

A zingy acidity adds to the elegance, and the flavours echo on the finish.

Food Matching The perfect accompaniment to fish, chicken and summer salads.

Jean-Claude Bachelet Puligny Montrachet Les Aubues 2017

This is really classy in 2010, the first year with the name of the lieu-dit on the label. A beautiful floral nose, dancing fruit, charming and balanced, it possesses an excellent racy acidity and is altogether a great success. From 50-year-old vines in Les Aubues, an enclave within better known Enceigneres, this is very attractive with quite a full nose and an excellent finish.

Domaine des Brosses Sancerre 2019

The Girard family have 6 different parcels of Sancerre vineyards. Their hillside vineyards are located on classic clay and chalk soils, giving the grippy, mineral style expected of true Sancerre. Domaine des Brosses has used a machine harvester to collect the grapes since 1989. This is so that the Sauvignon Blanc is brought to the winery in the coolness of night-time, thus retaining the classic citrus and gooseberry aromas and flavours of Sancerre. Pale yellow in colour. The nose is fresh and full of hay, citrus and mineral notes. The palate is medium in body with crisp lemon acidity and an appealing creamy complexity alongside the ripe peach, elderflower and mineral flavours which last well on the long finish.

The different terroirs owned allows Bernard to offer wines unique in style and differing qualities, - so forget the cheap pretenders to the Muscadet crown, try a wine that grabs you by the scruff of the neck and shakes you around the room - if you dare! Big wine with big minerally flavours of the sea, air and vegetation finishing with a crisp punchy smoky edge - yeehaa!

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 des Ballandors Quincy 2019

This is the village adjacent to Sancerre and Pouilly Fume where wines of similar style are made but because of Quincy’s ‘lesser’ name at much reduced cost. This wine is a testament to that; the flavours and aromas achieved in this wine are equivalent to any top flight Sancerre, with ‘grippy’ edgy grapefruit notes and steely crisp fruit. When Anton Beukes, winemaker at the Môreson Winery in South Africa, tasted this wine at supper, he said; ‘This is the wine I would love to make’ - Anton makes some very serious wines, so what an accolade! Winner of Best French White Wine at ‘France under one roof’ London 2005.

Chenin Blanc dominated dry and minerally with a tang of honeyed melon on the palate that leads to the crisp floral finish.

Fermentation was controlled at between 18-20 degrees to preserve the precious aromas.
