Producer Profile

For years the Chileans have propagated the myth that they alone are capable of producing quality, modern single vineyard wines at very affordable prices but the wines from Umbrele, utilise ‘new world’ technologies to create contemporary Romanian wines that are fresh and fruity and extremely approachable. Umbrele means shadow and refers to the mountainous terrain that surrounds the vineyards dominating the landscape. With new world technologies and a contemporary approach to the winemaking the quality of these wines is anything but hidden in shadow. The wines are fresh, fruity and extremely approachable.


Grown on a variety of soils, from cracking clays to limestone rich loams. All vineyards are non-irrigated. Trained to vertical shoot positioned trellis with 2 to 4 canes per vine with replacement spurs. Inter vine soil management by cultivation. Yields from 5 to 15 tonnes per hectare. 90% mechanical harvested


Grapes are night harvested to arrive cool at the winery. Crushed and de stemmed then the must is chilled on the way to the press. Pressings and free-run fractions separated for fermentation. Juice clarified by flotation then racked to stainless steel for fermentation at 10-15deg C over 2 to 3 weeks. When fermented to dryness, the wine is centrifuged and cold stabilized prior to blending, filtering and bottling.

Oak Treatment

Time: 45 Days; Type: American Oak; % oaked: 25; % new oak: None;

Tasting Note

A wonderfully fresh and fruity Chardonnay with amazing fruit and power. Ripe and thick, with lots of mango and toasted oak–a Chardonnay showing all the attributes. There’s a chewy, cherry, buttery, intensely tropical side to this full-bodied wine.

Food Matching

Grilled satay chicken, veal, shrimp, crab and lobster
