Tuna carpaccio with tomato confit on a bed of mixed leaves
This is a 625 hectare estate located in the western fringes of the Transylvania/Banat region near the city of Timisoara in the west of the country. Wine has been produced here continuously since 1477 but it has been completely replanted in the past ten years and a state of the art winery built which was completed in 2010. The wines are made by Australian Hartley Smithers and Spaniard Nora Iriate who have worked with local viticulturists and winemakers over the past 7 years to create modern, fruit driven wines. Whites are harvested early in the morning and fermented in stainless steel to maintain freshness, part of the Pinot undergoes carbonic maceration and the rest is very lightly oaked. They are environmentally conscious, having the most up to date waste water re-processing plant in Central Europe - and everything is conducted in a high quality, modern, attention to detail way.
What a shocker! Who knew that Romanian Pinot Noir could be this good?! Good Pinot rarely comes in at under £12, with most good cheaper ones having lots of nice strawberry fruit, but none of the lifted feel that you want from Pinot Noir. This one is different: incredibly good value, with loads of juicy fruit, plus (and this is the clincher) a wonderful delicacy and freshness that makes you want to go back for more. Yummy for any occasion!

You’ll find that pinot noir is usually pretty pricey, but this is a cracking pinot for the money. Offering bright cherry fruit with plums, it also shows spice and a hint of vanilla sweetness. Romania is showing real promise at this point.
