Very Vienna - Liliac

Very Vienna - Liliac

What has Vienna got to do with a newly launched Sauvignon Blanc from the Liliac winery? The 0.4 hectares of vines owned by Liliac in Vienna, the plot of land that gave the first wine launched under the Liliac brand, a wine made in a limited edition of 2004 bottles that are only available in Romania.

In early March, I participated at the launch of Very Vienna, a very expressive fresh Sauvignon Blanc signed by Liliac winery.

I was very happy to participate in a wine launch after a long time. I knew Liliac winery wines for many years, 2 years ago I even went to Liliac Lodge Batoș, a hilltop cottage in the middle of the vineyard, for a wine tasting and a night spent there (I talked about this experience here), But what I didn't know is that Liliac owns a small 0.4-hectare plot of land planted with vines near Vienna, the "little sister" of the Batoș vineyard, which produced the first wine launched under the Liliac brand.

I went to the launch with a lot of curiosity about the new wine and I discovered 3 wines, not one.

Of course, the star of the day was Very Vienna Sauvignon Blanc. A very fresh wine from the 2020 harvest, with aromas of citrus, elderflower, grapefruit and a little melon. A wine that I would gladly enjoy either as such, or at a lunch or on a special day. It is a wine that goes well chilled (I appreciated the service of the wine at the optimum temperature at the launch tasting).

In addition to the star wine of the day, we also enjoyed a sparkling rose, as well as a sweet wine signed by Liliac, Unexpected 2.0.

The sparkling rose, Private Selection Sparkling Rose after him, is made from Pinot Noir grapes and has a salmon rose color. The smell is dominated by raspberries, and the taste reflects the aromas of raspberries and almonds. It was a very suitable wine to be served at the beginning of the tasting.

Another wine discovered on this occasion was Unexpected 2.0, a sweet white wine made from 7 grape varieties (Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Fetească Regală, Muscat Ottonel, Traminer, Pinot Gris and Fetească Albă) and 3 years of harvest at which -used 4 vinification techniques. The wine is vinified in stainless steel tanks and matured in Transylvanian oak barrels, on Transylvanian lands. An "experimental" wine, as Miron Radic, General Manager of Liliac, said, a wine that can never be made the same way. The wine is signed by oenologist Laurent Dubreuil.
