Winemaking: 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. 

Vegan?: yes

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. 

About the producer: The Cramele 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.
