Amfora Cuvée - Gordia - 2017
Grape: Malvasia, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon
Aging in wood: Amphora/Qvevri
Added S02: No
Tasting Notes: In the glass, it wows us with a deep, bright amber color, which is mainly due to the Pinot Noir extract. The consistency is dense. The nose is intense, reminiscent of dried fruit, where apple slices, dried apricots, quince, pineapple slices and papaya stand out. Candied citrus starts to open up with time; orange peel, lemon and then red grapefruit. Thyme introduces dried Mediterranean herbs, with wild mint and sage. Hay blends nicely with aromas of dried yellow flowers and black tea. Pine resin and graphite in between. Overall, well emphasized with caramel wood aromas, star anise, vanilla and licorice.
