have been dying to dig into this for the longest time. tucked into with baguette and mussels in escabeche and this pairing was an absolute dream. gorgeously integrated tropical fruit and searing acidity but the brine and minerality took center stage. this was drained clean within about 15 minutes of opening. — 3 months ago
Wine #2 Vinul Moldovei Vol. 1.
This wine is named after the protagonist of the Story of Harap Alb. And what a fitting name it is! White Moor, white made from black grapes (Cabernet Sauvignon and Fetească Neagră). Almost colourless, it offers charming (hehe, Făt-Frumos) notes of melon, pear candy, wet stones and green apples. Not overly complex, but delicate, well-balanced and mineral. It's fresh with gentle and well-integrated oak (2 months with bâtonnage).
Not sure if it makes sense to age it, but it's a wonderful choice for a hot summer evening or to pair with oysters.
