Solara Orange Wine is a natural wine made with no added sulphur or commercial yeasts and leaving the skins and seeds in contact with the wines to give an orange colour. Apricot aromas and complex flavours of stone fruit with great structure and a long finish.
Solara Orange Wine is a white wine macerated on its skins, and a great example of the latest evolution in wine style. A textural wine, full of layers and complexity, but still fresh and clean it surprises and delights from the first taste. Created from indigenous and international varieties which combine together to produce a pound-for-pound champion that it is impossible not to love.
Back in 1988, three families decided to invest in a winery in Romania, starting with 650 hectares of slightly unloved vineyards and a rusty, once state-owned winery.
Yet Englishman Philip Cox and his Romanian wife Elvira, have turned the Cramele Recas Estate into the most successful winery in Romania. Recas are now recognised globally for their impressive scale and breadth of fascinating wines, including natural and orange wine from organic grapes. Despite the scale the emphasis is on making good wines that over-deliver, and as a result they’ve struck on a magic formula that has seen sales and demand boom. Vineyards are a combination of evolved plantings from 1447 and more recent planting, whilst the winery has seen significant investment and boasts state of the art facilities where innovation thrives. Recas are in every way a modern, dynamic winery, whose open minded approach and quality sets them apart … a winery you really can’t ignore.
