This zesty white has the racy passionfruit flavours of a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc and the elegance of a Bordeaux. In fact, it's from Romania and one of the country’s No.1 wineries. Owned by a husband-and-wife team, it’s a very refreshing sip.
The hottest name coming from Romania is Cramele Recas. Founded in 1998, this pioneering cellar leads the field in premium wines, with an up-to-the-minute winery and vineyards that were first planted in 1447. Englishman Philip Cox and his Romanian wife started the estate, bringing in winemaking expertise from Oz, Hartley Smithers, and Spain, Nora Iriate. Their bottles have even caught the attention of The Telegraph and The Drinks Business who have written rave reviews about their vibrant, characterful wines. This zingy, gooseberry-fresh Sauvignon Blanc is part of their new Babele range, named after the Romanian tradition of celebrating the arrival of spring. Racy passionfruit and citrusy tangerine spring from the glass. An elegant drop.
"The wines are affordable, and they also over-deliver for their price point"
