Feteascǎ Regalǎ, Château Vartely 2015

This grape, indigenous to Romania and prolific in Eastern Europe, is most easily compared to Chardonnay – enabling the winemaker to produce styles ranging from racy and fresh to buttery and creamy, depending on his goal. As for this particular bottle, the 2015 is a crisp, aromatic and dangerously easy-drinking dry white packed with citrus fruit and floral notes.

Rara Neagrǎ, Purcari 2014

As a recognised name amongst Moldovan producers, Purcari do not disappoint in their expression of this local black grape variety. Densely-coloured, full, rich and spicy, this red displays notes of vanilla, clove and coffee together with bountiful black fruit flavours of plum and dark cherry. A wine that calls for some local Moldovan cuisine!
