Sparkling amber color in the glass, very nice aroma immediately after opening, nice viscosity after swirling in the glass, aroma of caramelized fruit and meadow flowers. The wine has a full body and a balanced spicy taste that creates a pleasant mouthfeel. Tones of green apples, powerful tannin. Balanced structure of acid and tannins. Nice aftertaste. Either enjoy this wine on its own, or you need bold and spicy food to go with it.

Varietal: 100% Rkatsiteli

ABV: 13.5%

Georgia, the country that intersects Europe and Asia and was once a Soviet republic, is home to Caucasus Mountain villages, Black Sea beaches and an ancient wine-growing region producing over 500 unique grapes to make exotic and affordable wines. The country is one of the oldest winemaking regions in the world, a fact that came to light five years ago, when archeologists discovered qvevri (pronounced “kway-vree”), traditional clay vessels used in winemaking. Inside the qvevri were grape seeds dating to 6000 BCE. UNESCO was so amazed by the longevity of these ancient clay jars that they included qvevri on its Intangible Cultural Heritage list in 2013. This wine was made in qvevri, the large egg-shaped, beeswax-lined, porous terracotta vessels filled with grapes – skins in-tact, covered and buried underground for six months. Due to the vessel’s bulbous shape and pointed bottom, it acts as a natural filtration system, enhancing the natural essence of Georgia wines.
