Solevari Reserve, Syrah, DOC, Viile Timisului, Romania, 2017

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

Produced from grapes which are parrt of the yield control strategy adopted in the vineyard. Syrah vines have a tendancy to overcrop which can lead to thin wines if not controlled. To manage this, they remove a proportion of the grapes soon after flowering, before the vine has started to swell them into grapes. The emphasis then goes into fully ripening the remaining grapes to ensure a generous flavour and a deep colour.

Winemaking

A simple stainless steel fermentation to preserve the flavour and keep the wine open and fresh.

Oak Treatment

No oak treatment

Tasting Note

Red fruit, spicy red chilli on the nose- full bodied and packed with fresh forest fruits. Very moreish!

Food Matching

This is a big bold wine, suited to a T bone steak.
