In July 2009 the Oprisor winery launched the high premium series with a Cabernet Sauvignon , which has remained inscribed in the memory of wine lovers as the “Red Label”. Now, in July 2022, more than 10 years after that event, the Oprisor winemakers are adding a new impressive creation: the Feteasca Neagra- Crama Oprișor, which will probably become known as the “Purple Label”.
From the 30 hectares of Fetească Neagră cultivated in the Oprișor vineyard, we winemakers choose the plot from which the Fetească Neagră grapes give to the must and to the wine the strength, power and consistency of the Oltenian rich terroir. It is the message of authenticity that Oprișor Wine Estate transmits to the world.
Noted for its intense colour and lingering aromas of candied red fruit, embedded in dark chocolate, Oprișor’s Feteasca Neagra presents itself with an elegant first accent. The sensation continues with the lingering, enveloping, slightly aggressive taste of strong, but well-ripened tannins perfectly rounded off by the long maturation period in oak barrels. It is at the same time a powerful yet voluptuous wine, generous in its energy, yet well-structured and balanced, perfect either for a large and sophisticated gastronomic evening or for a personal moment of reflection.
Recommended with beef steak in walnut and red pepper sauce. Recommended temperature: 16ºC – 18ºC
The Crama Oprisor winery is located in the Drincea Valley. Vines have been present here since the 15th century. The hills of Golul Drincei form a beautiful viticultural “amphitheater” and this area is famous for producing high quality wines.
