We will be evaluating wines in no particular order on no particular schedule. Just stay tuned and you will never miss our reviews. If the wine is tasted more than once, the rating table will be updated so as to reflect all the new impressions and observations.

Today we are going to review a wine that has been released relatively recently on the market, a single-varietal syrah wine from the famous Stefan-Voda region – Shiraz de Purcari 2019 by Purcari. In a world where bolder is better, syrah is the perfect choice, as it is darker and spicier than cabernet sauvignon and contains a high amounts of health-invigorating antioxidants. Syrah, also known as Shiraz, can be vinified in two major styles: old-world style and new-world style. The old-world syrah wines tend to have more acidity and earthy-herbaceous aromas, while the new-world shiraz wines are usually fruit-driven with lots of spice and hints of smoke. That said and without further ado, let’s take a look at the wine tasting results.

_________________________________________________________________________
96x96This is definitely a fine wine of Moldova and, with a total of 92.1 points scored, this wine is right there, among the best wines we’ve rated so far. Check our complete database on the wine rating page, where you can find all the wines that we have tasted and reviewed or go to the about us page and find out more about our exquisite rating system.

Verdict: this is a fine and delicate syrah wine:supple, lean and round – a wine that is still developing, therefore one that has yet to reach the summit of its prime form, yet one that is ready to be enjoyed today or within the next 2 years. It feels slightly opulent on the palate, with crisp acidity, fine-grained tannic grip and a touch of alcoholic warmth on the mouthfeel – this is a wine that lacks just a bit of complexity and structure on the palate. The nose is filled with a noble mixture of ripe blue fruits (mostly blueberry) and some nuanced floral aromas (violets and lavender) in the foreground, supported by those rustic, savory flavours in the background. This wine is a real crowd-pleaser as it tastes very appealing, making it a perfect partner for meaty dishes that are rich in savory-natural flavours, like for example beef tartare, carpaccio or duck breast. Cheers!
