The Oddbins Take

People often say they shoot for perfection but is it not our seeming flaws that identify us and are the true expressions of our beauty? Like Marilyn Monroe’s birthmark or Alexander the Great’s heterochromia; whenever things were getting too much, his friends and family would stare in to his different coloured eyes and the imperfect beauty would help them forget about all the genocide and megalomania.

The same is true of the vineyards of the Rasova winery, although at first glance many might consider the soil too low-fertile, the rainfall too infrequent and the breezes off the Danube too cooling but it is these supposed flaws that define wines such as Imperfect Feteasca Alba. For it is this terroir that delivers the wines characteristic fruity intensity, of yellow apple and peach and razor sharp mineral finish.

    Do as the Romanians Do! - Mixed Case of 6 Wines

    As low as: £87.75

    Considering our head buyer, Ana Sapungiu MW, was the first ever female Romanian Master of Wine, we feel fairly confident declaring that we have the finest selection of Romanian wines on the internet. O yeah, we went there ‘Romanian-Wines-R-Us.com’! Romania has gone through a bit of a wine revolution over the last 10 years, talented young winemakers have planted new vineyards, brought in new winery equipment and focused on indigenous grape varieties with a sense of place. It’s an exciting time to get into Romanian wine and we feel this mixed case of 6 is the best place to start!
