Lautarul Pinot Noir 2016
Clean, ripe, redcurrant aromas with generous red fruit flavours on an elegant palate.
This region of Romania has a longstanding and proud history of winemaking. There are records of viticulture dating back to the Roman Empire, and legend has it that the Banat region of Romania was where Bacchus, the God of Wine, spent his childhood. The current new wave in Romanian winemaking has resulted in winemakers flocking to the country, and producing wines, including this Pinot Noir, that rival many of their Old World rivals. With its Mediterannean climate, this Western region of Romania is the home of the multi award winning Recaş producer. This exceptional Pinot Noir was made by Australian Hartley Smithers and Spaniard Nora Iriate, who’ve both worked at different wineries around the world. They’ve pooled their experiences to create a wine that’s inspired by the great Pinots of western Europe and the New World, as well as being totally of its place.
This textbook Pinot Noir offers wild strawberry, cherry and smokey forest-floor bouquet, and crunchy red fruits, spiced fruitcake and cheerful acidity on the palate. Savour its long and elegant finish with a seared tuna steak.
