"Mid orangey gold. More apple than apricot here, apple skins and a touch of orange. Sour-fruited and lightly spiced on the nose. On the palate, dry and scented with dried grasses. More delicate tannins than on the Dakishvili Family Kisi. More subtle. Mouth-watering and elegantly structured. Lovely wine with great length. 17.5/20 points. (JH)"
Vinous Reverie Notes
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 2019 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.
