Racy passion fruit, tangerine and gooseberry flavours are graceful and elegant with a lovely, lively mouthfeel and a medium body. A zingy acidity adds to the elegance and the flavours reflect on the finish.
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.
Harvested in the cool of the night in order to ensure the grapes reach the winery in the best (firmest) possible condition. De-stemming followed by very gentle pressing using a pneumatic press is followed by cold maceration overnight in order to extract the maximum aromatics from the grapes. Fermentation is in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at 14C.
The perfect accompaniment to fish, chicken and salads.
