Fetească Regală or Royal Maiden or Royal Fairy is the youngest white variety from Fetească trio. It has only 100 years and it was born from the natural crossing happened in Transylvania between Fetească Albă (White Maiden or White Fairy) and Grasă de Cotnari (Oily of Cotnari) grape varieties.
It is called “royal” to honor the Romanian royal family which that time helped the winemaking industry to develop in Romania.
The name drives us to the idea of feminine delicacy and sophistication. It fits perfectly to the wine that it is usually made dry and drunk fresh, in the first years after the making. It also have a good aging potential even if it is a light alcohol wine (9 to 11.5%). The wine flavor is mainly floral that seems like the picture of Târnava Area (center of Transylvania) the area where Fetească Regală was born, but also flavors of fruits, especially yellow Romanian apple.
