AVINCIS CUVÉE PETIT is a Sauvignon Blanc that comes from the high quality clone of Western Europe. Its potential to create a good wine has been fully produced for over a century in the Drăgăşani vineyard. The color is light yellow with green reflections. The wine has aromas of green pepper with baked brussels, and its taste is strong, with high acidity and a specific minerality in the Drăgăşani area.
Crâmpoşia was first cultivated on the hills of the Dacian Rusidave and Roman Rusidava, the branches of the Drăgăşani vineyard, which have earned a well-deserved fame from the time of Oltenia’s money until today. Crâmpoşia Selecţionată from AVINCIS is a good-looking wine with a bright yellow color with discreet green reflections. It has a fresh and expressive bouquet of pear and green apple, and its taste is persistent and lively, with citrus notes accompanied by a pleasant minerality.
“It is an honor to be in such a short time, again on the list of winners! Last week I won two gold and silver medals for Negru de Drăgăşani and Vila Dobruşa Sauvignon Blanc at the International Wine Contest Bucharest and now we are placed in the top of the Romanian wines by one of the most famous guides, Gault & Millau. Our work together can only rejoice and demonstrate that the craft tradition, the ambition and the workforce of all those involved are the advantages of AVINCIS, where respect for quality is paramount. At the same time, I am very optimistic that the interest in international premium wines is growing.
