Fetească Regală is the Royal grape exclusive to Romania, known as Royal Maiden in English. It is a cross between two grape varieties – Fetească Albă and Grasă de Cotnari and again originates from Transylvania. Regală has the aromatic quality of Fetească Albă but is a weightier grape with more body.
The Regală also has a citrusy edge to its character with lots of orange and lemony fruit. Fetească Regală works well with oak and can produce bigger wines with a slightly spicy finish.
Pale yellow with green tinges, this wine has a bouquet of fresh fruits, green apple in particular.
