A wonderfully fresh and fruity Chardonnay with amazing fruit and power. Ripe and thick, with lots of mango and toasted oak. There's a chewy, cherry, buttery, intensely tropical side to this full-bodied, delicious wine.
The story of the Cramele Recas estate from where this wine comes is one of real success and achievement, for this was a great estate which went to ruin before Englishman, Philip Cox and his wife performed their magic on it. With a 20 million euro investment, a brand new winery and the recruitment of a top winemaking team from Australia and Spain, the estate has been transformed and is today more like a scene from Tuscany. The results of their efforts is a truly fabulous range of wines which all overdeliver for the price.
Grapes are harvested at night to arrive cool at the winery. Crushed and de stemmed then the must is chilled on the way to the press. Fermented in stainless steel tanks, the wine is then finished in American oak casks where it spends 45 days.
This wine will stand up to big food flavours such as satay chicken, crab, Thai spiced dishes and meaty salads.
