First we surprised you with the fabulous rich, rounded white made from red Cabernet. Now enjoy the lush, creamy fruit of this new sparkling version. It's from our friends in ancient Moldova, where fine quality wines have been made for 2000 years.
It’s rare to find a Blanc de Cabernet, even rarer to find a sparkling edition. However, the winemaker at this Moldovan cellar, Marian Haraba, is a master of the style and over the years has won many awards for it. A cold biting wind in the naturally organic vineyards of Cimislia ensures a lovely aromatic freshness, but it takes considerable skill to obtain the flavour from the Cabernet grape skins, without the colour. This wine is from a well-kitted winery, set up in 1994. It’s benefitted from considerable investment both in the cellar and in the vineyards. Enjoy Albastrele’s soft mousse, light floral notes with white peach and citrus fruit, balanced by its creaminess. Pure charm as an aperitif, or with chicken, fish or spicy Thai cuisine.
"A new find from this ancient wine region – a terrific Blanc de Noirs fizz"
