The Herb collection from Romanian winemakers Domeniile Averesti uncovers the unquestionable value of the aromatic wines of native varieties and reveals subtle, authentic flavours of delicate aromatic plants, potentiated by a unique freshness. 'Herb' is the old Romanian name for coat of arms or noble blood, and more well known as the generic word for aromatic plants.
The rare Busuioacă de Bohotin grape from the Husi region is manually harvested, removed from the grape cluster without crushing, and then cooled to 10 °C and press macerated for 6-8 hours. The resulting free run juice is clarified before fermentation in stainless steel tanks for 20 days.
This creates a wine of warm salmon-pink appearance showing well-matured basil aromas and aerial rose accents. The taste is a balance between floral rose and grapefruit, which brings a sensation of freshness. The long, pleasant finish, pleasant adds sweet red fruit sensations. Try with light starters, seafood, or white fish.
