Orgo Rkatsiteli

This “Amber” wine is made 100% Rkatsiteli grapes. 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 colour is determined by the longer skin contact, by the age of the vines, and by the terroir. This is a rare and unique wine drinks more like a red with grippy tannin and is meant for food. The first thing you notice is the amber hue of this qvevri made wine that comes six months of aging on the skins. Lovely aromas of dried apricot, almond, truffle and hay. This medium to full bodied wine has grip, velvety tannin and drinks more like a red than any white you are used to.
