2016 Calusari Pinot Noir, Cramele Recas, Viile Timisului, Romania
A very drinkable wine with a light, soft and welcoming nose of autumn fruits. The soft, smooth & spicy flavours persist throughout with generous red fruits and a lovely elegant finish.
A perfect wine for lunchtime, barbeques, sitting having a glass in the sunshine .....
The rolling, picturesque vineyards of Calusari 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 slice of grape growing history into a contemporary winemaking haven. The immaculate vineyards are a combination of evolved plantings from 1447 and much more recent plantings too. With recent investments into modernising and improving their winery, they regularly host world class flying winemakers, vintage to vintage, to work with their team. This enables them to create top quality wines and constantly challenge themselves push innovations and approach winemaking with an open mind.
