Cramele Recas

Legend has it that the Banat region of Romania was where Bacchus, the god of wine, spent his childhood – certainly the first records of viticulture date back to the Roman Empire when it invaded and annexed the central part of Dacia in 106 AD. The region west of Romania, surrounding the city of Timisoara, is the home of the multi award winning Recaş. The vineyard areas and wine region have both benefited from centuries of influence from Hungarian, Bavarian and Austrian immigrants – all laying claim to have influenced the present day viticulture. Recaş is now a 700ha modern day winery, exporting to both Europe and the Americas. It has a Mediterranean climate, cooler than the rest of Romania, and dryer with a longer harvest season, allowing many varieties to ripen easily.

Tasting Notes

Aromas of fresh fruit dominate this wine - green apple and citrus with hints of lime. Packed with flavours of juicy fresh white melon. A crisp and refreshing acidity leads to a zingy finish.

Food Matches

An ideal accompaniment to Asian food, chicken, salmon and tuna.
