Alb de Purcari 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Product Description: "BOARDING PASS: FROM CHABLIS TO SONOMA FIRST CLASS!"​ Close your eyes...these white flowers and minerals transport you to the petal-strewn trellises and ancient seabeds surrounding Old Orhei, Moldova. Your journey continues in the Old World with hints from Chablis crossing the Atlantic for a long, ripe New World finish in Sonoma…first class all the way. Harvested by hand and created under the strict cannons of Moldovan winemaking tradition from grape varieties: Chardonnay (50 %), Pinot Gris (25 %) and Pinot Blanc (25 %). Tasting notes: Alb de Purcari its beautiful light golden color conquers with a waltz of aromas. Long and delicate honeyed notes well integrated with a lovely citrus freshness. Truly an unusual white wine. Thirsty palate, meet radiant brightness; rays of pale golden Moldovan sunlight captured in the bottle. Pairings: Alb de Purcari is perfectly assorted with fish, seafood and white meat. It can also be served as an appetizer to dishes of mussels, oysters and caviar. Recommended serving temperature +8 .. +12 °C

Purcari:
Wines you will recognize from a country you never heard of. The noble wines of Purcari are putting Moldova on the world wine map with their legendary wines ordered by the Royals of Europe for years. Their wines hum a familiar Bordeaux tune, but in a key that is 100% Moldovan. In any language, it’s a symphony. Hear that note? America’s next new wine country has arrived!
