With 'some of Europe's greatest cool climate vineyards' (Hugh Johnson), Rumänien is a great place to grow white grapes, bringing out all their complex minerality and elegance. Our House Chardonnay delivers fantastic quality at an everyday price.
As wine expert Tom Stevenson notes, ,Of all the wine growing regions of Rumänien, Transylvania is perhaps the most exciting., Up until World War II the local villages were covered with small vineyards but, under Communism, these were confiscated as land was nationalised. Thus, despite centuries of winemaking heritage, the country is just now coming back into its own , thanks to international investment and expertise. The steeply sloping vineyards, combined with the sunny climate and cool, misty mornings, are perfect for growing Chardonnay , especially if you prefer a crisp, minerally style. With its ripe peach and orchard fruit character this white makes a great partner to salmon fishcakes, seafood starters or chicken and mushroom pie.
