Description

Producer Profile

Solara Orange is a white wine macerated on its skins, and a great example of the latest evolution in wine style. A textural wine, full of layers and complexity, but still fresh and clean it surprises and delights from the first taste. Created from indigenous and international varieties which combine together to produce a pound-for-pound champion that it is impossible not to love.

Viticulture

A mountainous terrain surrounds the vineyards and dominates the landscape.

Winemaking

Refreshing like a white wine, with the complexity of red wine. 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.

Oak Treatment

No oak treatment.

Tasting Note

Dark straw colour with orange hints, the nose is a delicate mélange of quince, poire william and a hint of vanilla. A complex and structured wine, with elegant but discreet fruit flavours of stone fruits, backed up with a powerful tannin structure and long finish. A natural minimal intervention wine which is well balanced and structured yet pure and incredibly fresh.

Blend: Feteasca Alba 51%, Sauvignon Blanc 19%, Chardonnay 15%, Tamioasa Romaneasca 15%
