Notes of Elderflower, lychee, brioche, fresh peaches with a crisp mineral lemon zest finish. Only 501 bottles produced.

      About the Supplier
      Romania has been edging itself onto the wine map for many people recently so I felt very lucky to be introduced personally to The Dagon Clan by a contact. As a new brand they had been tending to an ancient plot of the hillside which in centuries gone by, acted as a vineyard. 2 years in, their first vintage grapes were picked and made by critically acclaimed winemaker, Mark Haisma.

      Artisinal and produced in limited quantities, Mark Haisma’s hand and palate are what has shaped such a great range. Feteasca Alba (white) and Feteasca Negra (Red) are the local grapes, blended in with Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. Blind taste tests have really fooled people and foiled stigmas around Romanian wine, we expect this name to be very popular. Extremely small yearly production with only a few hundred bottles of each wine per vintage.

      Sustainability scope: All wines are made with minimal intervention, focusing on a balance between the natural elements that make the wine what it is, and the finished product. Suplhur and sulphites are used as little as possible and only in preservation during the winemaking process.
