Natalie's Score: 87/100

Floral and fragrant like honey blossoms. This Romanian white wine is made form the Grasa grape and it offers attractive notes toasted almonds and ripe apricot. Pretty and soft post-prandial sipper: no acidity that's discernible. This botrytis-affected wine pairs well with Stilton and biscotti.

Grasa De Cotnari food pairings: blue-vein cheeses, roasted nuts, apricot galette.

Reviews and Ratings

Cotnari 2015 is a Romanian white wine from the Moldova wine region and produced from the Grasa grape. Although Grasa is used to make both dry and sweet-style wines, this wine is a dessert wine made with botrytis-affected grapes to produce a semi-sweet style. Look for ripe apricot, marzipan and walnut flavours on the palate matched by a vibrant acidity. Chill and pair it with air it with a dark chocolate mousse or creamy blue cheeses. - Community Wine Reviews
