“The simple step of a courageous individual is not to take part in the lie. One word of truth outweighs the world.”
— Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn

Barrelled Viognier,
Unbarrelled Viognier,
Tămâioasă Românească

The grapes were hand-harvested.

Skin-contact maceration was used for both grapes.

Part of Viognier was aged in new acacia barrels, for 6 months. The rest of Viognier and Tămâioasă Românească were aged in stainless steel tanks, with bâtonnage.

The attack of Minima Moralia Honesty wine is extremely fresh, with green sensations dominated by citrus fruit (lime, lemon, vine tendril). But this sensation hides, in fact, the subtle richness of flavors, ranging from fleshy green peaches and white plums to notes of white flowers and pollen. The influence of the acacia barrels is reflected in the light, perfectly integrated notes of vanilla, as well as in the body, which became more dense and silky.

Recommended serving temperature: 11ºC – 13ºC.

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.
