Solara Orange Wine, Cramele Recaş
- Vintage: 2021
- Origin: Vrancea, Romania
- Taste Guide: Unoaked, dry & medium-full in body; a perfect introduction to Orange wine! The nose is a delicate combination of orange peel, poire william (pear brandy) and a hint of vanilla. On the palate it has a bit of complexity, with elegant fruit flavours of dried apricot, orange and honey backed up with a gentle tannin structure and long finish. Made with minimal intervention, the wine is well balanced, pure and incredibly fresh.
- Food pairing: Great with tapas and spicy canapes.
- 75cl - 12.5% - Screwcap Opening
- Great score and feedback on Vivino.com
The Cremale Recas Estate, owned by Englishman, Philip Cox and his Romanian wife Elvira, have put in a huge amount of work into transforming their slice of grape growing history into a contemporary winemaking haven.
The immaculate vineyards are a combination of evolved plantings from 1447 and much more recent plantings too. With recent investments into modernising and improving their winery, they regularly host world class flying winemakers, vintage to vintage, to work with their team. This enables them to create top quality wines and constantly challenge themselves push innovations and approach winemaking with an open mind.
Refreshing like a white wine, with the complexity of red wine. This orange wine is made by leaving the grape skins and seeds in contact with the pressed juice, creating a deep orange-hued finish. The wine ferments naturally without the addition of yeasts, sulphur or any other additions. The different varieties are then blended and before a natural cold stabilisation, and bottled unfiltered and unfined. It does not undergo any oak aging.
Varietal Blend: Native grapes and international varieties including Feteasca Alba 51%, Sauvignon Blanc 19%, Chardonnay 15%, Tamioasa Romaneasca 15%.
