A Pinot Grigio with real character, aromatic and rich mouthfeel. Delicious.
Named after a secret Romanian fraternal sect whose dance is said to look like they are flying through the air. They were also said to be able to cure the victims of fairies but that, I suspect has more to do with the Romanians love of wine! Calusari grapes are grown in rolling, picturesque vineyards that almost look and feel like Tuscany. Englishman, Philip Cox and his Romanian wife Elvira, have put in a huge amount of work into transforming their land into a modern winemaking haven. The results are outstanding wines that can stand shoulder to shoulder with their peers from around the world.
Tasting Note: Lovely, opulent aromas of grapefruit and peach follow through to a lithe body, with loads of fruit as well as abundant melon and apple character and citrusy acidity.
