If you are new to Romanian wine, you are in for a treat. The fifth largest wine producing country in Europe (with production volume similar to Chile), Romania has been making wine for hundreds of years and offers unique varietals at an amazing value. An estate bottled Merlot from Cramele Recas - a rising star of Romanian winemaking, Between Bridges Merlot is a medium weight wine, with no oak or tannin, which allows the super-bright plum and strawberry fruit to glide nimbly across the palate. This Merlot is a fruity, easy-going wine, so it should be paired with simple foods. Try with midweek pasta dishes or pizza.
