The greatest way to live with honor in this world is to be what we pretend to be.” - Socrates

Vintage: 2011

Organisation of the vineyard: The Domain disposes of 15 hectares of Fetească albă, 35 hectares of Chardonnay, 27 hectares of Sauvignon Blanc and 13 hectares of Pinot Gris, planted at a density of 6 000 to 6 250 plants per hectare. The orientation of the plants is from North to South, on argil and limestone soil. The pruning type is single Guyot. The average yield was 8 to 10 to/ha.

Winemaking method: The grapes were hand-harvested. Fetească albă, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris were pressed directly, whereas for Chardonnay we chose skin-contact maceration for 12 hours. Part of Chardonnay was aged in new and second use French oak barrels for 6 months and for the rest, aging was made in stainless steel tanks, with bâtonnage (stirring of the lees). 13 % < 2 G/L 3,30 6,8 G/L

Tasting notes: An « alchemic » blend and one which respects the everlasting rules which created, in the past, a « regional assortment”. Thus, a wine was born whose debut on the nose is explosive, starting by fine pollen, dry flowers, elder tree and vanilla. After airing, the flavours are dominated by honey, fruit flesh and acacia. The mountfeel confirms the complexity of flavours, with the core element – fruitiness, wrapped in extreme sensations. On the one hand there is the freshness defined by high acidity and on the other hand there are the buttery and mature wine, comprised in a solid, round, glyceric body.

Recommended serving temperature: 11ºC – 13ºC. The possible deposits certify the minimal intervention performed on the wine. 

Variety: Blend of Feteasca alba, barrelled and unbarrelled Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris.
