Producer Profile

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.

The immaculate vineyards are a combination of evolved plantings from 1447 and much more recent plantings too. With recent investments into modernising and improving their winery, they regularly host world class flying winemakers, vintage to vintage, to work with their team. This enables them to create top quality wines and constantly challenge themselves push innovations and approach winemaking with an open mind.

Viticulture

Densely planted on hilly sites surrounding the winery at an altitude of 100m, the vines average 10 years old. Trained using the Guyot method. Drip irrigation is used if absolutely necessary though is by no means used every year.

Winemaking

Machine Harvested in the cool of the night in order to ensure the grapes reach the winery in the best 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.

Oak Treatment

No oak treatment

Tasting Note

Racy passion fruit, tangerine and gooseberry flavours are graceful and elegant, with a lovely, alive mouth feel and a medium body. A zingy acidity adds to the elegance, and the flavours echo on the finish.

Food Matching

The perfect accompaniment to fish, chicken and summer salads.
