Solo Quinta 2011 Cramele Recas


I visited a good friend last night and among many wines we tried with Spanish Jamon and different Spanish cheese assortments, we had a bottle of 2011 Solo Quinta. It has been a while since I had it, so I was very surprised to see the development.

It is important to mention the itinerary this bottle had since I bought it at Goodwine’s spring edition: the bottle travelled Bucharest – Sevilla in April 2012 and Sevilla – Bucharest back during the summer of 2012. It has been stored in my friend’s house eversince in a regular room without any controlled storing conditions.

Solo Quinta 2011 Cramele Recas

Blend of Feteasca Regala, Muscat Ottonel, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay (dominating the blend with almost 80%) and Syrah made as a white wine.

The color is medium yellow lemon. The nose is fully developed and mature, intense and really aromatic; it shifted from fresh fruits and flowers to more mature aromas of honey, dry yellow fruits: dry apricots, dry pears and mango, gaining an interesting profile, very expressive, but feeling at its peak. There is still enough acidity on the mouth to make it pleasant to drink, with mild liveliness on the palate, a touch of coffe bean aroma mixed with honey and dry fruits. Medium finish with a slight bitterness that might not be preffered by some but I find it appealing. This particular bottle has all the characteristics of a fully mature white wine at its peak,  that offers its best form today. So, if you still have any left, it’s time to drink it and enjoy it now. (87-88/100)
