Principesa Margareta White

28,00 

An impeccable reputation inspired a wine with noble character and profound spirit.

One of Romania’s most complex white wines, with a floral size that completes the fruity, glyceric core. White cherry and white plum flavors, with vanilla, lime, vine tendrils, pollen and fresh acacia flower accents. A blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, barrique-aged Viognier and fresh Viognier.

Since the early days of 1990, when Her Royal Highness Princess Margareta of Romania arrived among the Romanians who came out of the Communist dark era and until nowadays, the Crown Princess became a symbol for all the values that were lost or ignored for half of a century – honesty, respect for tradition, passion for excellence, modesty, volunteering, humanism and charity. Through each action, Her Highness became a pioneer in forming a new responsible elite, able to lay the first bricks in Romania’s moral renaissance. (domeniulcoroanei.com)

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.
