In the midst of a UK winter it can be easy to forget what sunlight or sufficient vitamin-D levels feel like. As you walk through the door, drenched head to foot, with an inside-out umbrella you may wish you could disappear for an hour to a summer day on the shore of the Black Sea.

La Plage delivers a bottled day at the beach, refreshing enough to serve slightly chilled yet spicy and warming in a way to bring back memories of lazy July afternoons. A palate of red cherries, currants, black pepper and vanilla, this wine is sure to distract you from the fact it got dark at 3 o’clock!
Crama Rasova is part of the new wave of Romanian winemaking, established in 2014, they have fully embraced modern techniques and equipment. The vineyard and wine cellar are located in Cernavoda, Constanţa. Situated in the proximity of the Black Sea, on the Eastern Bank of the Danube. The climate is tempered by these two bodies of water, while still receiving over 2100 hours of sunlight a year, helping to fully ripen the grapes while maintaining good acidity and aromatics.

The wine is very fresh and fruity, grapes are kept for 12-hours in a chilling room at 10°C and before being manually sorted, destemmed and gravity-fed to tanks, with the berries intact. Pre-maceration for 48°hours and fermentation with selected yeast for 5 days at 22°C with daily pump-overs. Before the end of fermentation, skins are removed and the last of the sugar is fermented without maceration. The winemaking team then inoculate with Malo-lactic bacteria, after that they blend in stainless steel tanks, stabilize and bottle.
