Wow, what a great wine. I've always been impartial to Gravners and this is why. Cracked opened one with a few friends.
Showing VERY tight right now. It is incredibly well structured, and again, cider, clove, honey, minerally. Showing tight but hinting at a brooding monster beneath this. I can't wait for this thing to come around and show its potential. Expensive but for those that like thought provoking whites, this is one of the best in the world. Vouv, you should try one of these....but if you do, decant for at least 2-3 hours...if not more....

Hey Eng. Are you a graduate of the Winoweenie School of Typing??? From your description of the wine, you clearly like it, which I would think means you're partial to the wine.

Having said that, I want a T-shirt that says, I LOVE GRAVNER. Maybe I'll even try tiping it meself. [img]http://www.wines.com/ubb/smile.gif[/img]
I was told by the importer that demand for this wine is so low that they are having a hard time moving it.....might have to go and see if there are some specials [img]http://www.wines.com/ubb/smile.gif[/img]
Foodie, I love the word you use. I agree. It is majestic. I can't get enough of it....If I could afford more of it I would have more of it..
