Chateau Purcari Pinot Noir de Purcari 2020 from 8wines
Cellar for up to 7 years. No need to decant before serving. Despite earning a reputation in the 20th century for supplying the Soviet Union with huge quantities of everyday table wine, Moldova has a rich winemaking history which dates back thousands of years. The country’s oldest winery is Chateau Purcari which was officially established by special decree by Tsar Nicholas I in 1827. Purcari experienced a golden age in the 19th century and won gold medals for their wines both at home and at the Paris World Exhibition. In the 21st century the profile of the estate is once again on the rise thanks to their impressive performance at the Decanter World Wine Awards where the winery won numerous gold and silver medals as well as Best In Show for one of their white wines. This elegant Pinot Noir is crafted from estate fruit grown close to the Black Sea where the water helps to provide a cooling effect and preserves freshness and aromatics in the wines. The fruit is harvested by hand and vinified using typical local winemaking techniques followed by 12 months of ageing in French oak barrels. The result is a graceful and refined medium bodied red wine with bright and vivacious notes of ripe cherries, raspberries and plums which linger on the tongue.
