Mustoasă de Măderat or Juicy of Maderat is an ancient grape variety that survived the filoxera attack in the 19th century. It is specific for a limited area in Miniș, western Transylvania. The white wine resulted is one of the most appreciated in the area.
Usually the wine is made dry. It is fresh and fruity with acidity above the average, therefore it is appropriate for sparkling wine.
The fruity taste leaves a chill impression. Mr. I. Pușca, a highly respected Romanian wine specialist, describe the wine as being like “the fresh air of an autumn Romanian morning”.
The body is medium and the alcohol is between 9 and 11%.
