The philosophy of blends applied by any respectable oenologist says that the end result of a wine assembling process must be better than each wine taken separately. Although it is by far the most complicated assemblage of red varieties in Romania, Symphony is not a difficult, tiring or attention-grabbing wine. On the contrary, the eight varieties found in this bottle - Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Fetească Neagră, Syrah, Touriga Nacional, Cabernet Franc and Marselan - have come together to the point where they have created a unitary structure, a wine elegant but cheerful, perfect for friends` gatherings. Full of freshness, playful, with an aromatic centre dominated by red fruits and berries, doubled by a spectrum of secondary aromas of spices and of the vegetable spectrum, it is a wine younger than the age it shows and the 1,5 litres packaging assures us that this exuberance will be kept for a long time.
Syrah is the only variety for which carbonic maceration has been used for whole, unstemmed grapes. For the other varieties, a classic maceration-fermentation was chosen, in stainless steel tanks and at controlled temperatures. The maturation of the wines was done separately for each variety. Marselan, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot were aged in French oak barrels for periods of 6 to 12 months. The other varieties are not barriqued.
