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.

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

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.

The 2004 vintage of this iconic #Ribolla #Gialla from #Gravner. Savory, umami, dried red berries + herbs. Deliciousness.

Very particular wine, conserved into underground amphoras as in the ancient middle-East tradition of Georgia. To be decanted at least 1 hour and half before tasting...

Super slow to wake up, but elegant just the same.
