Blue Train – Tămâioasă Românească
|Type of wine:||
The Romanian tradition almost imperatively requires that Tămâioasa Roamanească be vinified sweet, or at least semi-sweet. In Segarcea this variety has been cultivated for a relatively short time, so we tried to experiment with all its expressions and the dry wine variety proved to be incredibly expressive, offering an incredible expression of the Oltenian land. The extremely complex bouquet goes from roses to the pulp of sweet fruits, from white flowers to the classic Muscat aromas. The strong and long taste proves to be refreshing, with an acidity that gives the vivacity that sets in motion the complex and full of structure ensemble that the aromatic levels give.
The grapes, picked by hand, were peeled, crushed and kept for film maceration for 24 hours, at temperatures between 8° C - 10° C. A light pressing followed and the stum obtained fermented slowly for 30 days in stainless steel tanks, at controlled temperatures between 15ºC - 18ºC. The wine was matured on fine yeasts for 3-5 months.
