This beautiful Vinoterra Rkatsiteli wine is made from the similarly named grape Rkatsiteli. This grape is one of the oldest described grape varieties from the Georgian vineyards of Kakheti. The wine is produced by a traditional method of Kakheti which means that the fermentation of the grapes for a period of 6 months takes place in a Qvevri without the addition of yeast. Due to the method, the wine cannot be characterized as a usual white wine, the color is more amber. This wine is bottled without filtration.
This Vinoterra Rkatsiteli wine has an amber color due to the long contact with the skin in the Qvevri. It is an elegant wine with aromas of apple and pear combined with a nice touch of minerality and earthy notes. The taste is intense, passionate and a nice experience to combine with a good meal.
This is a must-try wine, even if you prefer red wine.
The wine is perfect with grilled pork with a pomegranate jam or a nice piece of grilled white fish.
