Carlevana Feteasca (Moldova) – from the wine virgin

The first wine of the evening was a very light and crisp white wine, Carlevana Feteasca. This particular wine was from Moldova and I do not think I have ever had a wine from the Feteasca grape. I really liked this white wine because it was heavy on the honey, and I really enjoy the whites that have this scent and/or flavor. There was also a bit of a citrus undertone that paired nicely with the sweetness of the honey.

This was a pretty smooth wine with just a hint of acidity. It was fun to pair this with the olive tapenade and the spicy orzo salad. The tapenade brought out the spiciness of the wine and the orzo salad brought out the sweetness of the honey. It was interesting to be able to get two subtleties

    Who distributes this wine? Not too many wines from Moldova in distribution. I just had some homemade sparkling white from Moldova last week that was quite interesting.
