Tsinandali is delightful and refreshing white wine. It is blend of 80% Rkatsiteli (pronounced Ra-ka-see-tell-ee) and 20% Mtsvane (pronounced Ma-tsvah-nay). The grapes are sourced from the Tsinandali micro-zone in the Kakheti appellation and must be this blend to receive the name Tsinandali. This wine has been a consistent favorite in the US having been featured in Wine Spectator, the Today Show and the Washington Post.

From Kim Marcus at Wine Spectator: "Redolent of green apple and spice, this features plenty of pastry notes in the mix. Quite creamy midpalate, with hints of pumpkin on the crisp finish"
