2018 Velistsikhe Veranda Rkatsiteli Qvevri - Kakheti, Georgia
|Availability:||In stock (62)|
Rkatsiteli from Georgia is the mother of all Orange wine. Fermented and aged on the skins in traditional Georgian Qvevri - large, earthenware vessels - this ancient winemaking style predates the term ‘orange wine’ by about 8000 years! It’s exotic with tangy, orange peel and oxidative notes but also approachable and balanced with medium body and flavors of orange blossom and bitter almond. Pairs very well with unpasteurized, salty, funky cheeses as well as wild fowl dishes.
