Amphora Wine

Clay amphora are thought of as a middle ground between steel and oak. Stainless steel allows for an oxygen-free environment and doesn’t impart any flavour into the wine. On the other hand, oak allows for oxygen to reach the juice, and the wood’s tannin can also affect the aroma and flavour of the wine.

Like oak, clay is porous, so it does allow for some oxygen giving the wine a deep and rich texture, but like steel it’s a neutral material that won’t impart any additional flavour.
