Category: Qveri wine
Type: Dry white
Rkatsiteli is ideal for amber wine aged on stem and skin, where stems play major role. As the Rkatsiteli stem ripens well, compared with other Georgian and international varieties, a completely different wine is made from it. Our Rkatsiteli is from Akhmeta, grown in the areas adjacent to mountains and forests. This is why this wine is so refined and has strong aroma.
We pick the selected grapes at 22-25% of sugariness and 6-6,5 titratable acidity. We squeeze the grapes and move them into the qvevri, with stems. We add the pure culture yeast and knead 3 times every 24 hours as it is fermented. After the fermentation is complete, we leave the wine on skin before February-March.
Aroma: Dried pear, herbal notes, Georgian spices
Flavor: Vigorous, crisp wine with pleasant acidity, with the character and finish of the traditional Kakhetian wine
