Product description

This white or "Amber" wine is made from 100% Rkatsiteli grapes. For those of you who are not accustomed to white wines that are made with skin contact, the Orgo Rkatsiteli 2017 is your best chance to start enjoying this style of wines. While rich in flavors, this is still a very friendly wine with light tannins. The wine is fermented and then aged in Qvevri for approximately 6 months, using skin contact for the entire period of the Qvevri aging. The darker color is determined by the longer skin contact, by the age of the vine trees, and by the terroir. Grapes: 100% Rkatsiteli Fermentation: Qvevri Maceration: 6 months Yeast: Wild/Airborne Sulfites: Low Filtration: Unfiltered Starting from the bouquet this wine jumps out at you with characteristic honeyed stone fruit but fresher as opposed to dried. The acidity is more prominent in this vintage and the tannin is softer and integrated. This wine is so versatile with its acidity and tannin this wine is meant to go with a wide range of food. Try it with pork loin, trout, creamy pastas and for fun a beef braise.
