Grape Varieties:

Cabernet Sauvignon

Tasting Notes:

Colour: Deep Ruby

Smell: Black currants, vanilla, coffee, truffles, chocolate, tanned leather, green pepper

Taste: The taste opens up with black cherries, dried prunes, chocolate with rum and vanilla, over which come fine touches of paprika, pepper and sage. The acidity is quickly controlled by fine but intense tannins, a sign that wine will have a long life.

Serving: Best enjoyed at maximum 18 ° C, it can be stored for up to 10 years, away from the sun, in a horizontal position at 13 ° C.

Food Pairing:

Pork chops in sauce, tuna steak, ribs in sauce.

A safe and delicious association is that between Cabernet Sauvignon and red meat with a higher fat content or pork. The tannins of this variety have the gift of intensifying the sensation of tender meat, potentiating the taste. Black fruit flavors fit perfectly with seasoned sauces, and the light rustic notes complement perfectly simple and savory dishes, such as stews. In order to fully experience the potency of the wine, it can also be associated with sheep pastrami with strong oriental spices.

Description

Alira Winery

Values

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

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.
