Gogu Viorica 2020
Elegant, light, fruit forward
Grape Variety | Viorica
Viorica is a rare white variety indigenous to the Stefan Voda region of Moldova. It is a hybrid made by crossing Seibel and Aleatico. Dry, off-dry or semi-sweet the wines produced are aromatic, and have a marked personality showing flora, citrus, spices and sometimes light touches of honey.
Style | Fresh & Light
A wine that is light bodied and under 12.5% alcohol with medium to high acidity and delicate primary fruity aromas. Think varietal expression, fruit purity and precision rather than emphasis on wine making i.e battonage, reduction, oak, lees contact. These are refreshing wines with wide appeal. Typical tasting note expressions are ‘crisp’, ‘fresh’, ‘zesty’, ‘cool climate’, ‘purity of fruit’, ‘lean’. In its simplest form a light bodied wine would be equivalent to ‘skimmed’ milk and a full- bodied wine equivalent to blue-top, ‘whole fat’ milk. If your preference is for lighter bodied wines, look out for these grape varieties – young Gruner Veltliner, young Riesling, Pinot Bianco/Blanc, Frappato, unaged Chardonnay, Cinsault (whites), Pinot Noir, Gamay, Kadarka (reds).
