Mention Sauvignon and you may well first think of New Zealand's Marlborough. But our top insider secret? There's another 'M' out there making truly brilliant Sauvignon – Moldova. Like Marlborough, Codru in Moldova has a long, slow ripening season. It’s cold winds keep the grapes healthy and mean the vineyards can easily be grown organically. Albastrele is made with handpicked grapes from the Tvarditsa Estate at an award-winning cellar well equipped for producing bright, modern whites. Over the years, winemaker Vladimir Lazariuc has made us a string of award winning vintages. With its crisp, limey, stony character, Albastrele is truly impressive. It makes an elegant apéritif or a delicious match for grilled white fish or smoked salmon.
"Real quality Sauvignon. Lovely fruit and stony aftertaste. No wonder the Russian Czars drank it!"
