ORIGIN

Fetească Albă (or White Maiden in English) is the most widely planted white grape in Romania and regarded by many winemakers in Romania as the white indigenous grape with the most potential. Usually off dry it is capable of producing dessert wines of exceptional quality.

Intensely aromatic (think Gewurztraminer) Fetească Albă is a highly perfumed wine with hints of stone peaches, apricots and a floral bouquet. The variety dates back to the 1930’s from Transylvania but now flourishes across Romania.

WINE MAKING PROCESS

Harvesting is done manually at the beginning of September from a vineyard at the base of the slope with exhibition south-west.
Vinified in stainless steel tanks with controlled temperature at 16°C, with subsequent maturation on lees.

WINEMAKER:

When Count Guy de Poix established SERVE in 1994 he was already familiar with the art of wine making, as Guy produces one of the finest wines in Corsica – Domaine Peraldi.

Surrounded by an enthusiastic team, Dealu Mare is proving a sound choice for creating quality wines for Legendary Dracula.
