Making wine becomes fanatically interesting, that’s why winemakers are keeping waiting and hoping every year for the Big Harvest, a Good Year. Making Blends, is like putting together all parts of a perfect sport car and in the end you get a piece of Art or a Painter putting on the Canvas his imaginations and he gets his work he would be proud of.
Serendipity is a Blend of Feteasca Neagra 70% and Cabernet Sauvignon 30%. It was a good surprise when we put together in the lab these wines and we got the Blend we can be proud of as it has our indigenous Grape variety.
A wine with Complex Structure, we’d say a Cigar Box with lots of Dark Fruits taste, smoke, coffee and dried plums. A long aftertaste with pleasant almonds finish.
Definitely you need a Beef Steak for this wine and do not forget about the temperature, +16C.
What Wine Critic Says:
From Crocmaz, 8 km from the Ukraine border. New generation of small family producers. Two brothers who used to work on US cruise ships. 70% Fetească Neagră, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon. 2 days’ cold soak and 3 weeks on skins.
Bright ruby, looks a little older than 2013. Lovely juicy spicy red, hedgerow fruit. Lively, zesty and supple. Very drinkable. Really nice blend with some cassis and upright texture from the Cabernet but it does not dominate. Fresh and peppery on the finish. (JH)
