Producer and Tasting Notes


Recaș

Legend has it that the Banat region of Romania was where Bacchus, the god of wine, spent his childhood – certainly the first records of viticulture date back to the Roman Empire when it invaded and annexed the central part of Dacia in 106 AD. The region west of Romania, surrounding the city of Timisoara, is the home of the multi award winning Recaş. The vineyard areas and wine region have both benefited from centuries of influence from Hungarian, Bavarian and Austrian immigrants – all laying claim to have influenced the present day viticulture. Recaş is now a 700ha modern day winery, exporting to both Europe and the Americas. It has a Mediterranean climate, cooler than the rest of Romania, and dryer with a longer harvest season, allowing many varieties to ripen easily.

Tasting Notes

Dark in colour, fruit cake and spicy aromatics. Beautiful flavours, almost syrupy in its concentration. Layers of complex black cherry, raspberry and cinnamon, with a long and lingering finish.

Food Matches

Serve with a tuna steak and fresh salad.
