Dear <<First Name>>,
Stunning innovative wine making from Balla Geza and his winery in Minis, the foothills of Arad all the way west towards the Hungarian border. His Feteasca Neagra and Furmint weres mentioned by Jancis Robinson in her visit to Romania in 2014 and who can argue with the dame? See her report "Romania's grape hopes" here. Its no surprise that this gifted man plays with old varietals and breathes life into them to create sleek elegant wines. For me the dry furmint is my new favourite - all complex and alluring that i cant stop pairing with things goaty. The "Mustoasa de Moderat" dry crisp white is a beautiful summer drop. The "Cadarca" is a gorgeous red and the reserve version is sublime. And where else would you find a sweet red made as with a Tokaj or Sauternes from botrytis aged grapes? - the "Cadarissima" sounds like innovation but in fact the rebirth of the eighteenth century "Azsu" tradition in the area.
