Cellar for up to 7 years. No need to decant before serving.

Wine has been made in Moldova for thousands of years, but it is only in the last couple of centuries that this small country has drawn international attention for its excellent wines. In 1827 Tsar Nicholas I issued a special decree recognising Chateau Purcari as the first official winery in Bessarabia which is today known as Moldova.

This iconic estate is located close to the Black Sea in the south-eastern corner of Moldova. French settlers in the region quickly noticed the similarities between the local terroir and their native Bordeaux since the area sits at the same latitude as the famous French wine region and also boasts the same rubidium-rich soil types. This makes it particularly well-suited to Bordeaux varietals like Cabernet Sauvignon which thrive here.

This stunning Cabernet is crafted exclusively from estate-grown fruit which is carefully harvested by hand and vinified using traditional winemaking methods. The young wine is then matured in French oak barrels for 6 months to soften the tannins and add complexity. Full bodied and richly flavored, this dark and handsome Cabernet is bursting with cassis, blackberry and dark cherry notes along with hints of spice, leather and woodsmoke from the oak ageing.
