Wine of the Week

Tamaioasa Romaneasca

“In My Glass” this week brought to you by Constantin D.:

“Tamaioasa romaneasca or romanian muscatel white wine, is the Romanian aromatic sweet wine. The variety which produces this wine requires a duration and method in which the maceration-fermentation process takes place, which extracts the fragrance from the grape skin.

Its color is bright yellow with greenish or yellow reflexes, depending on the passing of the years. Its aroma is unique, suggesting sweetness, reminding one of rose petals and wild forest strawberries, which gives it a distinct personality in comparison with the other aromatic wines. The complex taste combines the bouquet of basil with that of freshly gathered hay and the special aroma of basil pears.”
