This beautiful Dakishvili Family Selection Cuvee Amber wine is made from the Kisi, Rkatsiteli and Mtsvane grape. The Dakishvili family is a true winemakers family where winemaking is passed down from generation to generation. Giorgi Dakishvili, once chief winemaker at Teliani Valley, now at Schuchmann / Vinoterra also has his own vineyards Dakishvili, Orgo / Teleda. For the first time Giorgi has now made wines which he releases under the family name Dakishvili. And it is understandable why he proudly puts his name on these wines: they are fantastic wines!
The grapes are grown in the heart of the village of Kondoli on the right bank of the Alazani River in Kakheti. This Dakishvili Amber wine owes its beautiful amber color to the long contact with the skin in the Qvevri. It is a fleshy and elegant wine with aromas of dried fruit, almonds and sweet spices. The taste is pleasant, harmonious, elegant and durable due to a well-balanced aftertaste.
The winemaker knows how to merge the characteristics of the three grapes into a beautiful bouquet of aromas. This is truly a wine to enjoy!
In Japan, the white Qvevri wines (also called amber wines) have also been discovered as a perfect combination with Sushi. The tannins are easy to combine with the salty soy sauce, while the further aromas are easy to combine with fish.
The wine can be enjoyed immediately, but can also be tasted as it developes over the years (under the right conditions off course) up till 2040.
