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.

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.

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.

Berton Foundstone Chardonnay 2020

An appealing fruit driven wine that has aromas of candied lemon, lime and honeydew melon. The palate is a fusion of sweet citrus, peardrop and ripe melon flavours that continue to a long and zesty finish. The wine is best enjoyed with lightly fried fish or just as an aperitif.

Dobogo Tokaji Furmint 2017

Medium gold in colour with a complex array of aromas including fresh notes of lime, pear, ripe apple, quince, herbs, chamomile and a hint of spiciness. The taught acid structure balances the ripe fruit concentration and salty, mineral character, which lingers on the elegant finish. This is a young and dynamic wine, which can be enjoyed immediately or aged for several years.

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.

Domaine Perraud Macon Village 2019

Bright yellow in colour with perfumed white flowers and stone fruit on the nose.

Loimer Riesling 2020

A rather restrained nose of fresh apricot and white stone fruit develops into youthful lime perfumes. On the palate, the Loimer Riesling has a crunchy acidity and lots of texture. Light-bodied, the wine is balanced and has a medium to long finish.
