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.
The winemaking tradition in Romania is a long and noble one. The first records of viticulture in the Banat region date back to the Roman invasion of Dacia in the First Century AD, but legend tells of Bacchaus, the God of Wine, spending his childhood there. More recent history shows that the vineyards used for Umbrele were already renowned by 1447, when the lord of Severin Mihall de Ciorna purchased the vineyards for 32 Hungarian gold florins.
Hailing from the shadow of the Carpathian Mountains in Transylvania, there has been massive investment in the winery and in new vineyards with the replanting of over 600 hectares. This investment has resulted in beautifully fresh and fruity wines.
Enjoy Solara Orange Wine with some spicy tapas.
