Crushed & Cured

Solara, Natural Red, Panciu, Romania, 2022


This natural wine is chocca block packed full of bramble fruit notes with raspberry and blackberry dominating the aroma, smooth and juicy with complex notes of blueberry and moderate acidity and smooth tannins on the finish.

Grapes were destemmed, lightly crushed and then macerated for 5 days on the skins. No additives at all were used in the winery. After 10 days on skins the free run wine was drained, and the free run juice fermented, after which there was a full natural malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks.
