Tasting Notes
Dark straw colour with orange hints, the nose is a delicate mélange of quince, Williams pear and a hint of vanilla. A complex and structured wine, with elegant but discreet fruit flavours of stone fruits, backed up with a powerful tannin structure and long finish. A perfect wine for lovers of natural products, with minimal intervention, balanced and structured yet pure and fresh, the lack of sulpher dioxide in this type of wines re-defines what to expect from the taste profile of white wines.
History
Cramele [literally 'cellar'] Recas is a premium wine estate located on the far western fringes of the Romanian region of Transylvania/Banat – near Romania's third largest city, Timisoara. Founded in 1998, Cramele Recas has become a private Romanian/British company owned by winemaking team made up of three families, including husband-and-wife teams Philip and Elvira Cox and Hartley Smithers and Nora Iriate. The vineyards, said to be some of the oldest in the world, were first planted in the area by the Romans with documents dating back to 1447 on the Recas vineyard land.

Lovely!

I really enjoyed this wine. I found it light and flavourful. Definitely would be perfect in the summer! Would buy again.

not a fan

only thing remotely orange is the colour - it just tasted like cheap white wine. Says no added sulphur on one side and gives warning contains sulphites on the other. I guess they are not the same but still seems misleading. I couldn't drink it

A Bit Boring

It's a decent wine, but its flavour profile doesn't live up to the tasting notes. Perhaps I was expecting too much from a more crowd pleasing offering, but more complexity would be good. Surely the point of it being available is to offer something a little different and more interesting to customers discovering orange wine.
