About Anima Chardonnay
Romanian legend Aurelia Visinescu has been producing wine under her own name since 2003 but she has decades of wine-making experience to draw on. The wine comes from Dealu Mare wine area, a hilly area under the Romanian Carpathians, known for quality viticulture. Anima is her premium range, produced in limited edition only from the best grapes in the best years.
Why we love this wine
Creamy with intense flavours of tropical fruits, pear and yellow melon, well integrated by the oak and vanilla hints. Full bodied and velvety, well balanced acidity, this wine impresses with a lovely nose and long finish.
Why you’ll love this wine
If you’ve enjoyed full-bodied new world Chardonnays from California or Australia, you’ll love this. It’s not a wishy-washy watery white. If you want something with character and finesse, this is the wine you’re looking for. Delicious when served chilled with white sauce dishes, lobster, turkey and even pork, puddings or cakes.
