The Petro Vaselo winery is located in the far west region of Banat in Romania, a few miles outside the city of Timisoara. ‘Alb’ is an interesting combination of 75% Chardonnay and a variety of Riesling called Welshriesling, or Italian Riesling that is grown mainly in Austria and across eastern Europe. While the Austrians are most known for this particular blend, the Romanians at Petro Vaselo have created an outstanding rendition. The grapes are handpicked and sorted, and fermented in stainless steel tanks for 20 days while the Welshriesling is left with the skins on. This is a young wine and definitely shows those bright characteristics. It is straw yellow and shows tropical fruits and floral acacia on the nose. The body has nice weight becoming of Chardonnay but is sharp and peachy with a herbal edge and lingering finish. A very pretty wine borne out of a very unique combination of grapes!
