Copper; fascinating balance between old-fashioned style and modern freshness. Turkish delight, deep, vanilla, creamy, lovely weight, unique style, beautiful length. Just starting to open up. Now - 2012.
13.5% The white Breg is a field blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling Italico, Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio, which are picked and vinified separately (sometimes in pairs) and then blended. This was my third time with this wine (once previously at a tasting with Miha Gravner and once at Locanda Locatelli in London, where we had to pass the sommelier's quick test before we were allowed it). This bottle was really singing. A bright, clear, brassy orangey-gold. The nose is quite raisiny nose with sweet agrumes and a very pleasant fragrance and a hint of sherrification (if that's not a word, it is now). The nose is much cleaner than the Radikon. On the palate too, it is much cleaner and more precise than the Radikon. The flavours are really quite concentrated and deep; it feels quite creamy, and there's an odd, but not unpleasant, hint of polish on the palate. Like the Radikon, this too was served a little too cold (cellar temperature), and it improved greatly as it warmed up (there's a comparison to be made with white Musar, I think), revealing much more fruit on the palate and much more of a delicious, savoury umami note. A superb bottle.
Very strange & unique, but I love it...strange bronzed color, vaguely cloudy, with notes of lemon, orange and tea (Lipton's iced tea). Slightly nutty (marzipan/almond). Easy to drink, great with food...
A light, bright, very clear brassy orange. Lightly caramel orangey nose with currants and light manzanilla hints. Full and round on the palate. A bit weird, as we expected: it must be a challenge for restaurants who choose to list Gravner's wines, as the return rate must be high! Quite round, yet also very dry on the finish. Nice balance and works very well with the food. Very Good Indeed.
