Since the fall of the Soviet Union Eastern European wines are slowly finding fans in the West, including wines like this one from Moldova, a tiny country wedged between Romania and Ukraine. This bright, acid-driven gem from the Codru Zone in southwest Moldova is a definitely a conversation starter for wine aficionados and novices alike. The variety Feteasca Alba is native to Eastern Europe and yields an aromatic, crisp white with notes of tropical fruit and stonefruit. The Castel Mimi is no exception, with bright yellow citrus upfront that leads to soft apricot & peach flavors and a gentle finish. Pair this white with soft, mild cheese or flaky white fish dishes.
