Umbrele Merlot Romania
Cramele Recas is an estate near Timisoara, the capital of the Banat region in Western Romania, just south of Transylvania. This almost one thousand hectare estate, in impeccable condition, is run by Elvira and Philip Cox, a Romanian/English partnership
The wine has a dark violet colour, is well complimented by rich aromas of dark fruits, plum and blackberry, with notes of spice and a hint of vanilla. Medium bodied, but full of jammy fruit flavours- black current, even a hint of dark chocolate, with warm tannins and a fine finish.
Food Pairing try it with pâtés or other charcuterie, pork or veal roasts, rich, cheesy gratins and even hamburgers
