Alamina Feteasca Regala 2016
A fruity, aromatic white from Romania, made from the indigenous white grape Feteasca Regala (Royal Maiden). The decrepit vineyards, were replanted 8 years and the now reborn grapes are showing the characteristics of Romania’s most popular white grape. White flowers and fruit salad on the nose with citrus/pineapple flavours. It’s really good with aromatic, spicy food. Romania has had a long winemaking place in the world, right back to the Greeks, but most of never gets exported. That is beginning to change. The vines here have good stories to tell, interesting grape varieties and good terroirs. As they begin to get their viticulture and winemaking up to speed we should expect to see a lot more decent Romanian wine - like this one!
