Prince Stirbey, Sec Tamâioasa Româneasca 2010 Romania 16.5 Drink 2012-2014 Very fruity and fragrant and clean and precise on the nose. On the palate it’s pretty light and finishes dry. Lots of fun and stimulating for those who are tired of the familiar in their wine glass. Very clean and well made. Fair value. 13% £9.50 The Wine Society
Prince Stirbey, Sec Novac 2009 Romania 16 Drink 2011-2013

Rather round and very textured. Clean and well made. Mineral finish. Real zip to this – unlike anything else I have tasted. Good old Prince Stirbey might just reignite Romania wine’s reputation. Finish is a bit sudden but it’s certainly novel! 14% £13.95 The Wine Society
