Moldova is serious about producing world-class wines, and this Pinot Noir channels their centuries of experience. In 2019, our Moldovan Pinot Noir producer sent us a set of samples that he asked us to taste blind, and we were floored. In 2019 the classic Pinot notes of red cherry and strawberry were somehow amplified, and how the typically mid-weight wine had seemed to take on a noticeable heft. Pinot Noir is truly a product of vintage.
2019 blessed Moldova with a picture-perfect growing season. Another year of maturation helped the Pinot Noir vines further establish themselves in this perfectly suitable Terroir. On top of these overwhelmingly positive natural factors, another year of experience working with Pinot in the cellar led to a further mastery of this finicky varietal. A perfect example of why we're excited about Moldovan wines - every year, they somehow get better!
THREE BROTHERS -
YOU CAN'T KEEP A GOOD TERROIR DOWN:
Moldova may not be the first place that comes to mind for fine wine- but it truly deserves a chance. One of the oldest winegrowing regions in the world, and it's only getting better with age. Despite its reputation as a viticultural curmudgeon, Pinot Noir has managed to thrive in Moldova’s well-aerated, gravelly soils; producing medium-bodied, feminine-styled versions that achieve flavor ripeness with correspondingly suave, satiny textures.
Moldova has an unbelievable amount of winegrowing diversity and a long, celebrated vinous history. When the Russian Imperial family established their personal winemaking facility there, Moldovan wines became highly prized by rulers, aristocrats and politicians alike. Today, Moldova’s wine industry is quickly expanding; investment is bolstering the country’s ability to produce world-class wines in terms of both quality and value.
