Cabernet Sauvignon

Variety of French origin that is grown on large areas in the Bordeaux and Medoc – regions of France. In the vineyards of our country, the variety has an impressive variability of phenotypic characters, being considered the king of red wines because it produces wines with the most chosen and solid reputation.

The wine of this variety has a ruby ​​red color and delights with delicacy, warmth and depth. Rich and full, it has a superb length with a raisin and date finish and an impressive aftertaste.

The rosé version delights with its freshness and complexity of aromas, complemented by shades of berries, rose petals and light vanilla accents.

Chardonnay

Appeared in Burgundy, Chardonnay is the result of the hybridization of an old variety called Gouais Blanc with one of the varieties belonging to the Pinot group.

It is a delicate variety, whose grapes have a thin skin, very fragile, being vulnerable to temperature variations and, implicitly, difficult to crop.

The variety is a true “chameleon of flavors”. Chardonnay wines reflect in their personality both the talent of the oenologist and especially the vocation of the wine area. They are usually dry or semi-dry, balanced, with a fine aroma of citrus and apple.

Feteasca Alba

A traditional variety, with history, Feteasca Albă is cultivated in all vineyards in Romania and is the Romanian variety with the highest national spread. The short vegetation period, about 150-160 days, and the large ability to accumulate sugars are the main characteristics of the variety. When young, the wine obtained from this variety develops a secondary aroma of very pleasant fermentation, reminiscent of the scent of vine flowers.

Usually, Fetească Albă wines are dry, acidic and full of freshness, but they can also be semi-dry or semi-sweet, the latter having a characteristic aroma that resembles the taste of honeycombs.

Feteasca Neagra

Is a local variety cultivated since ancient times in the vineyards of our country, that requires hard work on the part of the winegrower, being very pretentious to the culture technology.

The wine has an enticing red-garnet color, discreet character, but very specific, which is distinguished by the aromas of prunes, almonds and spices, with a rich and persistent finish.

The nobility of the variety is manifested in the rosé wines full of freshness, velvety and elegant, with a finish that is often not very long, but intense.

Feteasca Regala

The variety was first identified in the 1920s, right in the Târnave vineyard. 

Here is the homeland of this variety that covers, in our plantations, an area of ​​771 ha.

After 1920, the variety was propagated by the nurseryman Gaspari in Daneș, near Sighișoara, and in 1928 was named Fetească Regală. Over time, it was also called Fetească de Ardeal, Dănăşană or Dăneşană.

A variety that adapts very easily, self-fertile and very productive, Feteasca Regală accumulates moderate amounts of sugars, from this variety obtaining very pleasant wines, usually dry and semi-dry, neutral, characterized by freshness and balance.

Gewurztraminer

 Cultivated for more than a thousand years, this variety, also known simply as Traminer, has its origins in the village of Tramin in the Italian region of South Tyrol.

Gewürztraminer is a semi-aromatic variety that capitalizes very well on the ecoclimatic conditions of the vineyards, which gives the grapes a discreet and fine aroma. From this variety, whose grapes are dark pink to red and naturally accumulate significant amounts of sugar, can be obtained dry, semi-dry or semi-sweet wines that stand out for their charming bouquet and unmistakable aromas.

Following the process of maceration and fermentation, it develops a complex aroma that is also found in the rose flower. This aroma is preserved even after maturation, giving the wine its specific character.

Merlot

Originally from France, in the Medoc region, this variety has imposed itself and expanded in the Târnave vineyard due to his ability to give productions that justify their inclusion in the category of quality wines.

Merlot wines have a remarkable appearance, a bright color, intense red to ruby, aromas of ripe fruit, notes of chocolate, coffee and vanilla, with an intense and balanced taste that exults in complexity and finesse.

The young wine relies on its naive freshness that does not exclude the fine flavor of ethereal aromas. Merlot becomes truly remarkable when it develops a bouquet of aging.

Muscat Ottonel

It is considered to be one of the oldest varieties in the world, today having a “family” of over 200 varieties. The name gives clues about a characteristic of this variety, namely the very rich aroma of musk.

Depending on the time of harvest, a wide range of wines can be obtained from the Muscat variety, starting with the dry ones, full of freshness, up to the sweet, full-bodied wines.

Muscat Ottonel is the variety that finds favorable growing conditions in cooler lands and is representative of dessert wines.

Pinot Gris

Originally from the region of Burgundy, France, the Pinot Gris variety has been cultivated since the Middle Ages.

It is considered to be a budding variation of the Pinot Noir variety, having no stabilized characters. This fact makes us sometimes meet on the same sprig both black-grained and white-grained grapes.

It was introduced to Transylvania before the invasion of phylloxera, then known as Rulander.

Pinot Gris grapes accumulate the highest amount of sugars, and the wines obtained are of high quality.

In the early youth, the wine may seem unchiseled, but after a slight maturation, it becomes fine, extractable and dynamic.

Pinot Noir

Originally from France, it is the variety from which the famous Bourgogne wines are obtained.
It is one of the important varieties for white and rosé sparkling wines, which it personalizes, giving them finesse and elegance.

The introduction of this variety in Jidvei’s plantations was possible with the change of oenoclimatic conditions, which most faithfully expressed the specifics of the viticultural area of ​​the Târnavelor area (terroir viticole).

Riesling de Rhin

Rhein Riesling is a variety originally from Germany – the Rhine area, which adapts well to the cold climate, being appreciated by winemakers for its ability to express the character of the region in which it is grown.

From this variety can be obtained, depending on the exposure of the wine plots, a whole range of white wines, from light or astringent wines to elegant and refined ones, which are suitable for aging.

The Rhein Riesling variety grown in Târnave vineyard, adapts very well to the specific climate of this area, and the wines obtained are very versatile, with acidity and high alcoholic potential, correlated with notes of tropical fruits, among which the grapefruit notes stand out.

Riesling Italian

In our country it is known as Riesling Italian, the Germans call it Welschriesling, Riesling Roman. It is important to note that, genetically, the variety is not related to Rhine Riesling.

Very common in Romanian plantations, the variety has a medium to long vegetation period of 175-180 days, and is adapted to the temperate continental climate.

This variety produces a wide range of wines, from dry, semi-sweet or even sweet, being used as a raw material for sparkling and distilled wines.

Sauvignon Blanc

The variety has its origins in western France, the Loire Valley and the Bordeaux region, taking its name from the French sauvage (wild).

Sauvignon Blanc is a cosmopolitan variety that prefers slopes with southern or southwestern exposure, with full sun, which ensures optimal conditions for overripe grapes.

As with Traminer Roz and Pinot Gris, the maceration of Sauvignon must take place in a very short period of up to six hours. The maturation process, on the other hand, requires at least six months, a break period that gives the wine harmony and aromatic intensity. From this variety are obtained dry or semi-dry wines, fresh and elegant.

Syrah

It is known as Syrah in his home country, France, where the Rhone Valley shines in all its grandeur, and Shiraz in Australia, the country that made him famous.

The wine is ruby-red with shades of purple and notes of ripe plums, which blends with notes of exotic spices, pepper, cinnamon, giving it a velvety, round taste, and a structure full of refinement.

Traminer Roz

Traminer or Gewürztraminer is a semi-aromatic variety cultivated for more than a thousand years in the Italian region of South Tyrol.

After long research, the specialists made the Traminer Roz 60 clone, which has superior qualities in the accumulation of flavor compounds and sugars. The grapes are dark pink, which is why it was named by the French Traminer Pink.

Resistance to diseases, pests and negative temperatures allows the grapes to overripe. At negative temperatures there is a slow process of raisins (ennobling) that favors the concentration of sugars, flavor compounds, minerals and acids.
Traminer Roz has adapted very well to the colder climatic conditions of the Târnave vineyard.
