The Vinoterra Rkatsiteli is a perfect intro into Georgian Amber qvevri wines. Vinoterra is now the largest qvevri producer after starting out as a family project in 2003. Wine Maker Gogi Dakishvili crafts this all natural wine with the western pallet in mind. His qvevri wines have all of the characteristics of authentic Georgian qvevri wine but with elevated acidity and more rounded tannin.
Wine Making & Technical Details
Grapes: 100% Rkatsiteli
Maceration: 6 months
A light nose with hints of apple and pear. Good mouthfeel with lots of minerality, acidity and real grip on the finish. From Wine & Spirits editor "Rkatsiteli’s high acidity cuts through this wine’s richness, a combination of honeyed quince fruit and tahini-like nuttiness. It’s impressively fresh and tense until the finish, when the spiced mead-like earthy notes begin to weigh the wine down."
