Chateau Vartely – Cabernet Sauvignon

Moldova isn’t necessarily a country renowned for its wines but I like trying something different and this Cabernet Sauvignon from Chateau Vartely was a good starting point.  In fairness to the producers, the label looks like you are buying a wine from a French Chateau.




The smell of the wine was a bit sharp but then became very fruity with a distinct hint of blackberry.  Trying it without food, it had a dry start, fruit finish and a tangy aftertaste.  There were distinct hints of black pepper, vanilla and blackberries.


We had the wine alongside a lovely hunters chicken and the pepperiness of the wine worked fantastically with the food.  Overall this was a pleasant surprise and one I would buy again.
