Sole, Chardonnay Barrique, 2014, de Recas, white wine from Romania
According to the back label, there are only 25,000 bottles of this wine, which is produced from Recas’s best vineyards – “Dealul Tiganulul” or “Gispey Hill”. It was given to me by a brave Romanian who told me about the surprising quality of this Romanian chardonnay. I have always been surprised by interesting and good wines from Romania. But I believe I was always tasting only the top wines – since the people who offered me some of these wines knew that I like wine and pretend to understand something about it.
Until then I had only tried red wines – this was the first white.
