Ducks in a Row Pandora's Amphora 2012
The wine is rather clear and light for what I was expecting was an orange wine. I guess as it hasn't spent much time in contact with oxygen has resulted in a texture wine that doesn't possess those more extreme moments like Gravner's wines. On the nose there is some beautiful aromatics but the palate works better. There are moments of savoury fruits, think peaches and nectarines, mixed with spring flowers, honey and gunmetal. The palate weight is thick but it is balanced by acidity and a fine degree of tannins. These tannins are light, supple and sit firmly under the flavour.
Well done and such a difference for a Heathcote white wine.
