The Amfora is part of Herzánovi's no sulfite range of wines & while one might expect something volatile & likely to quickly oxidize, this wine is surprisingly stable since it spent its fermentation time in an amphora. Made of 10% Gewurztraminer + 90% Pálava (Czech cross between Müller Thurgau and Gewürztraminer) it has a bit of the characteristic aromatic & perfumed nose from the Gewurz, but the Pálava, despite being crossed from two aromatic grapes actually really calms it down, making it a more focused orange wine. 9 months on the skins in the clay so it got real cosy with those tannins, but since both varieties are more thin skinned & beautifully delicious eating/table grapes, it didn’t get tannin-aggressive. Such a long maceration resulted in a dark orange colour. You might call this an opulent wine with a seductive aroma, but I would call it a quality every day richness you should treat yourself to. Dried apricots, licorice, dried oranges & a bit of cinnamon. Best enjoyed chilled.
