Budureasca Premium Feteasca Neagra 2018

Budureasca Premium Feteasca Neagra hsa a dark purple, with great aromas based on intense ripe cherries notes. Jammy taste, of cherry and red fruit. A well-rounded and full-bodied wine, with soft, velvety tannins, and a very good bottle-aging potential. 

The grapes used in the creation of this wine were selected from parcels of vines 30 years old, with less than 6 tons per hectare harvested. After the selection, destemming and crushing of the grapes, the juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks for two weeks at 29¬įC. Alcoholic fermentation began after malolactic fermentation, due to which the wine became velvety, with soft tannins. A part of this wine was aged in oak barrels for 5 months, to get the required softness and the right depth of flavors.

Budureasca Premium is a collection of dry wines, which have been specially crafted for wine coonoisseurs to be savoured and paired with fine food from different culinary cultures. For this reason, they are mainly intended for the HoReCa segment.

These wines are very successful fusion between Old World and New World styles. Most Budureasca Premium wines are aged in oak barrels, especially the red ones. They are also aged in the bottle for at least 4 months before being released on the market.

In recent years, many of the Premium wines have been distinguished with medals at international competitions.
