According to the label, this is a white blend of Chardonnay, Feteasca Regala, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscat Ottonel but also Cadarcă (known as Kadarka in Hungary) which is a red varietal. Golden in color, clear and bright. The nose is tight but with air opens up a bit. Some cantaloupe and a bit of minerality. Slightly oily texture. Bold flavors on the palate. This is dry with minerals, limes, melon and slight cherries. A long finish. This is a really serious wine that seems like it should hold up for five to seven years. There is a nice complexity to it now on its own but should also
The Fetească Regală grape is a naturally occurring cross that was originally discovered in Târnave in the 1920's. Silver in color with some copper hues and slight gold, clear and bright. The nose has minerals, slight decayed peach, and acacia flowers. Medium bodied and slightly viscous. On the palate, peaches and minerals. Long finish. The first reaction on tasting this is that it is different. Unique. It takes some adjustment, but it is enjoyable and a nice value.
This is a varietally correct, solid Pinot Grigio, that easily could have been from Italy. Silver in color with copper hues, clear and bright. The nose has minerals with a touch of cantaloupe. Viscous with ever so slight residual sugar. Very refreshing. On the palate, lots of minerals with yellow grapefruit and lemon. Long finish. This is a great value if you are able to find this at retail. Drink over the next year. Nice on its own and will work with lighter foods.
