Calcarius Nu Litr Orange
Tastes just as good as it looks, a great introductory orange wine to get you and your mates hooked. Excellent freshness, and 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 in a litre format!
