2005 Gravner Breg Anfora. Very deeply colored. Not very oxidized nose. Many orange wine producers could learn something about oxygen management from Gravner. Absolutely delicious with a lobster, rice, pepper soup and a pressed pasta with duck ragu. Savory, firm, dried fruit aromas,but not overtly oxidized.

So my second time around with Gravner was a bit more satisfying than my first, but I'm still not convinced. This bottle had notably more intensity and interest than the first time I had his wines. But I still don't... love love it. Intellectually interesting but not great really.

Softer an more elegant than expected. So pure. Overripe pineapple, apricot and almonds. Grassy mouthfeel with honeycomb wax. very dry. Very very good. I can't believe he quit making this.

Varietal > Breg but pretty sure he stopped making it to focus on the single grape stuff

This beaut was in such a good place. Floral and ripe, yet balanced and sublime. Earthy and tannic in all the right ways.

This was a HUGE wine! Amazing, amazing stuff. Felt like the flavors changed 8 times over while letting it open up over some hours. Masterpiece, funky, and not for everyone.

Different, but in a good way from the master of orange wine.

Deep orange color. When these wines are young the fruit seems to taste incongruously fresh relative to the color, but at this age it has caught up and the flavors are deep and not especially fruity either. There is also a touch of fino sherry character to it. It does better as it warms up and probably would have been better still with a few hours' more air. As it stands it was okay playing the role of a wine with some depth when red wine just won't do, but standing on its own I can't say I like it at this age better than I did on release.
