“The greatest way to live with honor in this world is to be what we pretend to be.”
The grapes for Minima Moralia Honor were hand-harvested.
Fetească albă, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris were pressed directly, whereas for Chardonnay we chose skin-contact maceration for 12 hours.
Part of Chardonnay was aged in new and second use French oak barrels for 6 months and for the rest, aging was made in stainless steel tanks, with bâtonnage (stirring of the lees).
An « alchemic » blend and one which respects the everlasting rules which created, in the past, a « regional assortment”. Thus, a wine was born whose debut on the nose is explosive, starting by white pollen, dry flowers, elder tree and vanilla.
After airing the flavors are dominated by honey, fruit flesh and acacia. The mouthfeel confirm the complexity of the flavors, with the core element – fruitiness, wrapped in extreme sensations. On the one hand there is the freshness defined by the high acidity and on the other hand the vanilla flavors of a mature wine, comprised in a round, solid, glyceric body.
Recommended serving temperature 11ºC – 13ºC.
