Solara Orange wine 2022

Get to know: Solara Orange wine 

Tasting Note

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. 

Try with hard cheeses and chicken dishes. 

In the press

"Orange wine’s tannins can shock the unprepared: “What’s this red-wine-like texture doing in a wine that looks like an old white?” This well made, well priced example has a little of that but not too much grip and it’s combined with creamy apricot and subtle bitterness. A great starter example for the style."

David Williams - The Guardian, March 2024

Kate Says

"This is by far our most popular and most accessible orange wine and has helped introduced the style to so many people. It is less tannic than some other skin-contact whites, which allows the fruit to shine."


Producer Info

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. 

A blend of Feteasca Alba 51%, Sauvignon Blanc 19%, Others 30%

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.

This wine is suitable for consumption by Vegetarians and Vegans.
