Tămâioasă roză – Segarcea estate


Tămâioasă Roză, synonymous of Muscat Rouge de Frontignan. It comes from the same family as Tămâioasă Românească.

The Domain disposes of 14 ha of this grape, of which 1.5 ha represent the original vineyard, more than 100 years old. From this surface, there were sampled grafting buds and a new vineyard was created, of 12.5 ha. The pruning type is single Guyot.

A grape that was saved from extinction after the renaissance of the vineyard Segarcea, in 2002, has managed to to find its international recognition in just a few years of existence on the market, by winning the gold medal in Challenge International du Vin Competition, Bordeaux 2012. The success is all the more remarcable as the jury, obviously more enclined towards dry wines, has considered this semi-sweet to be worthy of the highest distinction. The particular flavors of ripen peach, white apricot and red forest fruits make up a delicate but strong bouquet. The taste displays the same flavors but the finish lingers on rose petals and comfiture.

The grapes, after reaching a ripening level of 256 g. of sugar/ liter, were handpicked and destemmed.

The richness of flavor lies in the berry skin and that is why, in order to extract it, the grapes have undergone skincontact maceration for 24 hours, at a temperature of 8ºC – 10ºC. The color was also extracted through maceration. It then followed gentle pressing and the juice obtained fermented for 30 days, in stainless steel tanks with controlled temperature, between 15ºC and 18ºC. In order to maintain residual sugar, fermentation was stopped by filtration.

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.
