Merlot is well suited to the soils and climate of the Dealu Mare region and was one of the most widely planted varieties in our region. The Merlot ripens usually in the middle part of October depending on the year. 2013 was an exceptional year for Merlot. To achieve its fruity characteristic we ferment this wine at around 25°C for up to 20 days. After malolactic fermentation is complete we place 70% of the wine in three-year-old American and Romanian oak barrels up to 5 months after which it is blended with the rest of the wine.

Tasting notes
Dark red in colour, ripe plum just a hint of spice on the nose. Complex flavours of fruit with soft tannins giving this wine its lovely velvety finish.

Food Pairing
Barbecued meat and rich pasta sauces
Serving temperature: 18-20ºC.


Budureasca The Vine in Flames Merlot 2016

The Vine in Flames is our collection of dry wines intended exclusively for the international market.

We craft these Romanian wines on the exact place where, over 2000 years ago, the Dacian leader burned the vineyards in order not to be an attraction for invaders.

We revived the tradition and brought back to life grape varieties and wines of unique value.

We’ll do all our best so you can enjoy our Romanian wine collection.
