Description Sub Region Producer Notes
Exquisitely balanced, the ’05 Breg Anfora is a blend of Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio and Riesling Italico--and it’s a wine whose textured whole is so much more than the sum of its parts. A gorgeous, textured wine, the saffron-hued '05 Breg has a righteous mouth-feel that's filled with velvety tannins, a deceptively chewy body, and Gravner's trademark psychedelic palate. After growing his grapes with strict biodynamic protocol, Gravner lets his white grapes sit on the skins in his amphora for around twelve months; then he 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, or dying a premature death. Ripe apricots, honeycomb, wildflowers and spices swirl and meld in the '05 Breg, a wine whose food-friendliness will surprise and ultimately delight.
