Calcarius Orange Puglia 2020
Bottle size: 1L
Viticulture: Organic, biodynamic practices
Winemaking: 5 days on skins
Tastes just as good as it looks, a great introductory orange wine to get you and your mates hooked. Excellent freshness, some grip, but the main draw is that juicy peach quality. Broad citrus and stone fruit flavours, with a light hint of floral honey. Easy to like, and a whole litre is a bonus!
