Cuvee Überland wine presents a dark ruby red color with intense violet reflexes and has a good clarity. Aromas of overripe fruits (cherries, currants and plums) open after the aeration. On the background are aromas of vanilla and sweet spices, such as cloves and cinnamon, with fine beeswax, incense and smoke, with a pepper finish.
The acidity is high and the alcohol is well integrated with the aromas of juicy red fruits (cherries and cherries). Smoked notes and soft tannins make this wine to have an athletic body and an elegant structure.
The wine has good aging potential.
It goes well with game meat, beef steak, baked duck or confit, mold cheese and desserts with cherries, blackberries, currants or dark chocolate mousse. Serving temperature is between 14°C and 18 °C.
Cuvee Überland (valley from across the hill) is made from the grapes harvested from the best spots in the Recas vineyard.
After harvest, the grapes are naturally dehydrated for 15-20 days. The juice used for this wine is 100% ‘răvac” (juice released prior to pressing of the grapes). Fermentation is controlled in stainless steel tanks. The malolactic fermentation is carried out and it is aged for 14 months in French oak barrels Dargeaux & Jaegle and in the bottles for 8 months until the first delivery (14 Oct 2019).
