25 May Călușari Romanian wine
It’s light-bodied yet full of dark flavour – the sort of tobacco and cherry notes you’d expect from a more full bodied wine. And well worth a try!
You can see how transparent it is up there, but on closer inspection you’d also notice a hint of violet round the edges, a note echoed in the aftertaste. I’m not a wine expert and this is the first time that I’ve tried a Romanian wine, yet I find it fascinating how a good wine can reflect it’s country and culture. This one is vibrant and light, but also deep and melancholy, with a hint of magic… It just dawned on me as I was writing that sentence that a friend once described me in similar tones! The exact phrase was “chirpy, with a hint of melancholy”. Perhaps this is why I love this wine
