Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Gravner’s fans are certain to adore the ’08 Bianco Breg; it’s a winemaking tour de force that balances the wine’s exuberant fruit with ideal acidity and a lush, velvety texture. Crushed river rocks, delicate toasted nuts, citrus zest and herbs frame the wine’s juicy orchard fruits. As seductive as this wine’s nose is, its texture will make you fall in love--it grips every corner of the mouth, building to a complex, lingering finish that just doesn’t quit. After growing his grapes with strict biodynamic protocol, Gravner lets his white grapes sit on the skins in his amphora for around seven months, fermenting each grape varietal separately; then he blends and ages the wine in casks for about six years before bottling, without fining or filtration. Unlike some other natural winemakers, Gravner does add small amounts of sulfur, believing that a tiny amount will keep his living, breathing wines from oxidizing.
