Alira is an 80-acre boutique winery, located in Dobrogea, on the hills overlooking the banks of the Old Danube. We believe in respect for nature and quality at the expense of quantity. We do all this in the hope of providing a premium experience to every customer.
The name ALIRA is a merge between the names of the localities of Aliman and Rasova where our vineyards are located and where the wine is born on the banks of the Danube. This is a special place where nature works in favor of man and the only ingredients missing to make a legendary wine were passion and skill.
Alira Cabernet Sauvignon
Alira Cabernet Sauvignon is created on the banks of the Danube, between Aliman and Rasova, following the Bordeaux philosophy that impresses through power and elegance. It is distinguished by the perfect harmony between ripe fruit notes and spices, or even more rustic olfactory sensations of tanned leather. Well-integrated tannins will continue to help it evolve well for years, remaining vigorous.
Wine-making and maturation
Matured in oak barrel for 12 months
The grapes are hand-picked and carefully selected on vibrant tables. We performed a cold pre-maceration of the intact beans at 16 ° C for 5-8 days. The alcoholic fermentation (100% by selected yeast inoculation) controlled at 26-28 ° lasted 8-10 days, then we performed a hot post-maceration for 5-8 days. Maturing was done for 12 months in new French oak barrels.
