Today we are going to review a wine that is relatively new on the local market – Alb de Gitana by Gitana Winery. This is a white blend made of feteasca regala and chardonnay, where the first one is an aromatic indigenous variety that is raising in popularity with each passing season, while the second one is the world’s most famous white variety. This wine is part of the newly released entry-level wine series, made of three wines: a red blend, a white blend and a rosé wine. The scope of this series is to fusion the generosity of nature with the human love for wine, backed up by an exceptional terroir of the Valul lui Traian wine region. But enough with the theory part, let’s get straight to the tasting!
This is definitely a good Wine of Moldova and the overall rating says the same, with 89.7 points scored it is right there, among the best wines we’ve tasted so far.

Conclusion: this is a very delicious and extremely appealing white blend that is right on the summit of its prime form, as it feels crisp, refreshing and supple-opulent – a real crowd pleaser. We strongly recommend to drink it now, as long as it is still young and beautiful, as the wine does not display any signs of ageing potential – it tastes too wide and lean, clearly lacking structure and character. This is a wine that will match perfectly well with dishes with slightly sweet accents, like for example sushi rolls or some pear, blue cheese and honey crostini, as the later one is an epic pairing indeed. Enjoy!
