“Today I saw her. Her! I finally fell in love, my friend. She was there, standing on the Blue Train’s steps, shrouded in a veil of steam…”

While history cast a shadow on the royal aristocracy, a Romanian wine pledges to unveil a world from a century ago and to preserve its spirit alive.

Organisation of the vineyard: The Domain disposes of 15 hectares of Fetească Albă, planted at a density of 6.000 plants per hectare. The pruning type is single Guyot. For this line, plots are selected that yield an average of 6 tones/ha.

Winemaking method: The handpicked grapes were de-stemmed and pressed at low pressure. The juice thus obtained was naturally clarified at temperatures of  8ºC – 10ºC, for 48 hours. It then followed slow fermentation in stainless steel tanks with controlled temperature, between 16°C – 18°C. This wine was aged on fine lees, with periodical bâtonnage (stirring of the lees) for 3 to 5 months.

Tasting notes: A refreshing and uplifting wine, excellent for hot summer days. Although this local Romanian grape is frequently used to create popular wine, it finds in Segarcea its true distinction, which insures the richness of flavors of the grape. The wine is aerial, almost fragile, with intense notes white flowers and blooming acacia. The taste is dominated by freshness, almost crispy and reveals citrus acidity which balances the whole.

Recommended serving temperature: 11°C – 13°C.
