Orange wine is very much in vogue and here's a tasty introduction. It's a white wine, made like a red, which lends both colour and texture. From one of the world's top names in Natural wine, renowned for quality and value, this is fresh and fruity.
The hottest name in Romania is Cramele Recas. Founded in 1998, this pioneering cellar leads the field in premium wines, with an up-to-the-minute winery and vineyards that were first planted in 1447. Englishman Philip Cox and his Romanian wife started the estate with scraggy vineyards and a rusty old winery, formerly state-owned, and brought them right up to scratch. They introduced winemaking expertise from Oz, Hartley Smithers, and Spain, Nora Iriate and have received rave reviews for wines that "over-deliver for their price point" (wineanorak). Leaders in Natural wine, they are experts with the Orange style. The handpicked, organic grapes were fermented on skins for 3 weeks, partly in amphorae, then lightly oak aged. Serve cellar cool.
"Apricot, cream, spice and citrus peel. Zippy acidity keeps things fresh and fun"
James Button Decanter, 89 points
