Fetească Albă Prestige

18,00 

The Domain disposes of 15 hectares of Fetească Albă, planted at a density of 6.000 plants per hectare. The pruning type is single Guyot. For this line, plots are selected that yield an average of 6 tones/ha.

The handpicked grapes were de-stemmed and pressed at low pressure. The juice thus obtained was naturally clarified at temperatures of 8ºC – 10ºC, for 48 hours. It then followed slow fermentation in stainless steel tanks with controlled temperature between 16˚C and 18˚C. The wine was aged on fine lees, with periodical bâtonnage (stirring of the lees) for 3 to 5 months.

A refreshing and uplifting wine, excellent for hot summer days. Although this local Romanian grape is frequently used to create popular wines, it finds in Segarcea its true distinction, which insures the richness of flavors of the grapes.

The wine is aerial, almost fragile, with intense notes of white flowers and booming acacia. The taste is dominated by freshness, almost crispy and reveals citrus acidity which balances the whole.

Recommended serving temperature 11°C – 13°C.

Domeniul Coroanei Segarcea spreads over a blessed terroir with mild sun and harsh soil, like a precious mixture of basic nature and high-altitude human character.

Segarcea estate lies on the 44° parallel, known as „the quality parallel”, in the Southern region of Romania called Oltenia, 25 km away from Craiova city and 70 km away from the Danube. In Segarcea, vinegrowing is favoured by the terroir. The vines spread over the last hills that lead to the Danube. In the past, these hills were at the bottom of a sea which rose like a limestone pedestal covered nowadays by a chernozem bedding.

At least 1440 hours of sunshine annually, from the 1st of April to the 31th of October, favor especially the red varieties, without discouraging the whites. The annual rainfall raises up to 565 mm and the average annual temperatures reach 11 degrees Celsius. Ideal conditions to create strong character wines.

Segarcea — “the land of dream” as its Latin roots predict — is one of the twelve domains that the Royal House of Romania took under administration during Carol I, King of Romania, in 1884, by Parliament decision. This is how the Administration of the Royal Domains (ADC) was established.

The role of the royal domains was to support financially the Royal House, but also to become agricultural hubs in the avant-garde of technology and knowhow.

Among these domains, Segarcea was assigned the role of vineyard and winery, under the supervision of distinguished agronomists and winegrowers coordinated by Florian Davidescu and Dobre Radulescu.

Ever since, the wines from Domeniul Coroanei Segarcea have accompanied the country’s kings and statesmen to diplomatic receptions and witnessed history making, like a faithful servant.
