This year’s Decanter World Wine Awards made Purcari Winery break its own 2019 record when our Chardonnay was awarded the Platinum Medal and 97 points. When we believed it couldn’t get any better, 2020’s Purcari wines brought home one more Platinum Medal and an amazing Best in Show award, along with another nineteen Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals. The stars of the show were Viorica and Traminer de Purcari – both rated at 97 points, chosen from 16.518 wine samples from all over the world tasted in blind by 116 wine experts.
Platinum Medal – Traminer de Purcari – 97 points
Traminer de Purcari gracefully made it to the Top 218 wines who were rated with 97 points by Decanter 2020 judges, making it part of Top 1.3% best wines in the contest. The wine was described as delighting with “classic and attractive aromas of perfumed orange, Turkish delight, lemon sherbet, and grapey notes. Vibrant fruit with a lovely concentration supported by refreshing acidity. It ends in a lingering finish with memories of aniseed.”
