Alira Grand Vin Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

RMR00003A

當來自多布羅加(Dobrogea)的和暖來到舊多瑙Danube河谷,ALIRA 準承地捕捉了風土的精華,形成給予葡萄生命力最佳的結合。當地的潛力是由他們的祖先於公元前二千年發現,釀酒生命已是這裡的傳統。十多年前,法國著名葡萄酒專家 Marc Dworkin 來到這裡,他預視到這處的實力和葡萄酒可能達到的複雜度,他和熱愛葡萄酒的商人 Dr. Karl Heinz Hauptmann 合作,發展一個葡萄種植釀酒計劃,除了令羅馬尼亞酒和乾罕的 ALIMAN 改頭換面,另外他也涉及保加利亞和中國葡萄種植,目標是製造以波爾多傳統高質量釀酒哲學為核心基礎的葡萄酒,同時保留及尊重當地特色。

此酒名叫 ALIRA 是因為要向鄰近種植葡萄的兩個地方, Aliman 和 Rasova 致敬。

ALIRA wines capture their essence, a countryside where the heat from Dobrogea meets the valley of the Old Danube forming the perfect alliance necessary for great viticulture. The potential of this area was discovered by our ancestors, Geto – Dacians circa 2000 BC. Winemaking has long being a huge tradition in this area. A revival took place a decade ago, when the famous French wine expert Marc Dworkin foresaw the strength and the complexity of wine produced from these local vines. Together with wine enthusiast and businessman, Dr. Karl Heinz Hauptmann, Dworkin decided to change the face of the Romanian wine and the arid lands at ALIMAN, by developing a viticulture-viniculture project here, as part of an international programme also involving Bulgaria and China. The purpose is to produce wine based on the bordelaise philosophy, while respecting the local specifics.

The wine was named “ALIRA”, as a tribute given to the communities of Aliman and Rasova, near which the new vineyard was planted.
