Balla Geza Feketeleanyka 2018, Romania
A soft, spicy red wine that’s like a warm hug in a glass.
Dry red wine, 75cl. Medium bodied 100% Feteasca Neagra from Minis, Romania. 14.0% ABV. Suitable for Vegetarians.
Feteasca Neagra, the grape, translates roughly to the “Black Maiden”, named after its deep intensity colour. Indigenous to Romania, the grapes are picked from the famous Minis vineyard in Transylvania, nestled in the foothills of Arad where the grapes enjoy long sunshine hours on granite rich soils. The wine is ruby with blueberry, black cherry and warm spice notes. It has a silky-smooth texture, thanks to maturation in barrel, and a tang on the finish.
You’ll like this if you like… Soft and silky Shiraz or juicy Chianti.
Pairs beautifully with: Braised lamb, tomato pasta dishes, potato and meat goulash, or grilled spicy sausages.
Cheese pairing: Manchego or 12 month mature Cheddar.
