Notes from the Importer: Drum Bun translates to “bon voyage” and can be seen on every sign as you jump from village to village. This is best done while driving a Dacia 1300 featured on the label. The standard-bearer of the Romanian automotive fleet and as famous as Fetească Regală itself. 50% spends 2 days on the skins and 20% in barrel and the rest is fermented in tank with zero maceration. Edgar has learned to never rack too close to bottling and give it both time in both tank and bottle. This patience pays off and we get a rare glimpse into what this grape is capable of outside of the more reductive, lower acid, halted malo, super aromatic and industrial versions that otherwise dominate the market. Bottled unfiltered with 10ppm SO2.
