In a nutshell:
An organically made, clean and minerally orange wine from the Georgian Republic in the Caucasus.
Viticulture in this part of the world goes back several millenia and while some of the winemaking techniques remain steadfastly traditional overall quality standards bear comparison with anywhere in the world. This organic white is made from the grape variety Chinuri indigenous to Georgia. The grapes are lightly crushed before whole bunches are put in traditional clay vessels, qvevri, to ferment in contact with the skins and they mature further in qvevris until bottling. To say this is a wine made in the traditional way might be an understatement. The wine itself has something of a floral nose with hints of mint and stone fruits. On the tongue there's a clean citrus acidity, good minerality and a distinctive orange pith and walnut quality.
When to drink:
Open a little bit before drinking and serve it only slightly chilled to bring out all the complexity.
