Caloian – Rhein Riesling – LIMITED EDITION – A Mineral And Exotic Romanian Treasure
Caloian is a series that, as we have come to expect from Crama Oprisor, is inspired by local traditions. The name Caloian refers to an ancient ritual custom where, on the 3rd Tuesday after the Orthodox celebration of Easter, a doll made of clay or wood is used: the Caloian. Boys and girls get together and dance the traditional dance “hora” until late in the evening. Traditional instruments such as the flute and cimpoi (bagpipes) are often played, and songs invoking rain and abundance are sung.
Reflecting the climatic characteristics and soils of Deep Oltenia, the wines of Crama Oprișorului reveal their unique character.
Let yourself be enchanted by the Caloian Rosé, a wine that brings with it fresh hints of cherries, raspberries and strawberries at first aromas, subtly combined with citrus and vegetal notes. The taste begins with a hint of sweetness, but then evolves into the characteristic acidity of young wines, resulting in a fresh, lively, elegant and pleasing aftertaste.
The Caloian Rosé has a beautiful raspberry-pink color and enchants with aromas reminiscent of delicate roses, juicy strawberries and wild raspberries. The taste is refreshing, elegant, lively and well balanced, with an alcohol content of 13.5% vol.
This Romanian Rosé is an ideal companion for a range of dishes, and especially for smoked salmon and white meat dishes. Get this tempting wine and add a touch of Romanian finesse to your festive meals.
