The Oddbins Take

Bucharest born Henri Coanda invented the jet engine in 1910. Now the jet engine has done some handy things, but what's most imprtant to us is it got wine makers get off their bottoms and visit lots of other producers.


This red is one such beneficary of steel canary riding wine makers (See winery information below). It's a blend of the international grape Shiraz and local Romanian Feteasca Neagra. Propelled by cherry, wild strawberry and cranberry flavours. Fuelled by smooth tannin and fresh acidity. It's a wine that rockets far beyond the usual plane* fare.


*All puns intended.
