A wine that one person out of 10 could receive and accept
I put it aside when I opened it cause I knew it would have been criticised badly from my company
Super orange or I should say THE Orange wine
Matured in Anphora
It smelled clearly of clay, overripe apricot and white plums, white pepper and coriander seeds
Nice freshness
It is a lot more that what it looks like, but it really requires an educated audience
I personally quite enjoyed it 👍

The OG of orange, the sultan of skin contact...the ayatollah of Ribolla. (Too much?) The most beautiful tobacco sunburst color. Defies easy description, almost disconcertingly fresh and alive, charming and inviting (read: not aggressively oxidative) but worthy of contemplation. Called to mind not only flavors of toasted nuts, dried apricots, orange peel, cinnamon, nutmeg and caramel but things that aren’t even food, like amber and mahogany and musty cellars. Mind bending.

Orange wine the way Greeks used to make it - not bad but not much flavor

Seriously created and very individual stuff. I realise its quality, but it's not appealing to my personal tastebuds. Weird pricing too.

Is that Bologna on the nose? What's going on here? Wish we'd had another 4 hours with this to watch where it was going here. Kept getting fresher as the dinner wore on.

Really interesting blend of whites with skin contact for five months. Not something I would order again, but really cool to try. It has a really almost peaty quality that I love in scotch, not in my white wine....

funky earthy orange wine from the intimidating 7'1ft biodynamic producer Josko Gravner, excellent with food, notes of hazelnuts, orange peel, fresh peach, forest floor

'04 gravner never disappoints. Even better than a year ago. Copper and yellow fruits with an acid spine that should be patented.
