Thank goodness then for Budureasca’s Origini Tamaioasa Romaneasca 2009, proof that Romania’s semi-sweet whites can indeed flourish in the right hands. With a stunning aromatic nose of lychee and elderflower, this varietal wine from the Dealu Mare region north of Bucharest, an area more known for its reds, showcases the potential for this local grape to be billed as ‘the Gewürztraminer of Romania’.
