Budureasca Bristena Busuioaca de Bohotin 2018
The name Bristena was chosen due to its Dacian connotation and meaning. It is said that Bristena was Dacians daughter, a brave little girl who helped Dacians to defend the country from enemies. The legend says that she even released a large number of people from prison, including her father.
Bristena is the collection intended primarily but not exclusively for ladies. The packaging and vibrant visual elements on the painted label give these wines an air of felinity and the flowers represent the sweet and delicate aromas.
Grape varietal & region: Authentic Busuioaca de Bohotin grapes were grown on 6 hectares of vines right here in Budureasca vineyards from Dealu Mare. Using these manually selected grapes elegance and a well-structured wine is obtained. The wines in this collection are made from grapes selected from vines that are over 60 years old, giving great characteristics and good structure to the wines. They are fresh, medium sweet with intense floral and fruity elements.
Taste profile: Budureasca Busuioaca de Bohotin has a pale pink color, with raspberries and wild cherries aromas on the nose, joined by fine notes of roses. The taste of ripe summer fruits is pleasant and well-balanced, with fresh acidity and a long, clean finish. It is an elegant and easy to drink wine at the same time.
Winemaking process: After the grapes were pressed, they were fermented at low temperatures for 3-4 weeks, to keep the natural sugars, offering a great balance between the varietal aromas and the sweetness of the wine.
