Your wine for the summer!

This grape is traditionally vinified as semi-sweet, or sweet and this is how we remember it from our childhood. But in the recent years drier versions have been shining. It is currently booming in popularity in Romania as a dry or semi-dry rosé, and several producers are making good sparkling versions. 

What does it taste like?

Predominant aromas of rose petals. Savory taste of succulent pear, peach, honeysuckle. Elegant finish with basil notes and balanced acidity. Best served very well chilled (8 ° C). Don't be fooled by its freshness, 14% alcohol!
The grapes were harvested in the morning until 10 o’clock, by hand with care, at a sugar content of 195g / l, then grapes were removed from the grape cluster without crushing. The grapes were cooled to a temperature of 10 ° C and then press macerated for 6 hours. After gravity decantation for 24 hours, the grape juice was fermented in 2000L vessels at 12 ° C for 18 days.

Grape Variety - Busuioaca de Bohotin

"Busuioc means basil", which gave its name to this aromatic pink-skinned grape variety, grown on 448 hectares in 2017, mostly in north-eastern Romania and Dealu Mare. It is known for moderate yields, high sugar accumulation and good acidity. There are differing opinions about its origin, which variously suggest that it was cultivated directly from wild vines along the river Prut; that it was brought by the Ancient Greeks; or that it was selected in the village of Bohotin. Unfortunately recent research shows that its genetic profile matches Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains so the conclusion is that it is a somatic colour mutation of this Muscat (though still possibly brought by the Greeks directly).

How to store

When preserved correctly, wine can last for decades, even centuries, growing in value and quality. But poor storage can spoil even the greatest wines in the world. These are a few aspects you should keep in mind: Store Wine at the Proper Temperature; Store wine bottles horizontally; Protect wine from light and vibration; Store wine at the proper humidity; Store wine in a wine fridge, not a regular fridge; Serve wine at the proper temperature; Store open bottles of wine properly

How to recycle

Up to 90% of new glass can be made from recycled glass. If you’re getting ready for a night out on the town, drink consciously and remember to keep your empties and then bring to the bottle bank. If you’re hoping to leave future generations with a healthy-ish and useful environment, then recycling wine bottles is the way forward and it doesn’t take much effort.
