Purcari Freedom Blend 2019
Freedom Blend is the expression of the free spirit, a courageous blend, full of character, from three indigenous grape varieties. It has the heart of Georgia, the terroir of Moldova, and the free spirit of Ukraine. The wine is aged for 12 months in French oak barrique. Grape varieties: 60% Bastardo, 35% Saperavi, 5% Rară Neagră.
Bastardo is the local name for Trousseau grape in Ukraine (also known as Magarach). Despite originally from Jura, France but it has been adapting to life in the Ukraine so well that it became the signature grape of Ukraine. Saperavi is the iconic Georgian grape that is also widely planted in Moldova.
