Teutonic 459 Amphora Red 750mL
459 Amphora Red (Gamay & Pinot Noir) - Provisions Exclusive!
100% fermented in clay amphora! "The nose is clean, with bright fruit- strawberry and raspberry. It's texture is a bit different as well (compared to the "1787" wine made with the same fruit but in neutral oak barrels.) This wine is a nod to the history of winemaking by the Romans in the Mosel Valley. Wine was fermented in clay amphorae and around the year 459, the Clovis the First occupied this area, removing the Romans and their winemaking with the amphorae and wooden barrels became the vessel of choice for making wine."
