Qvevri Amber Dry Rkatsiteli 2015

First Georgian wine, first orange wine, I'm in uncharted territories here 😊. Spoiler alert : I like it very much.

I have issues describing the nose as it's completely new to me : there is a bit of honey, a bit of menthol or petrol, some white flower notes too and a tiny touch of apricot. Wow
Here comes a palate with tannins 😮 a strong acid drive, a good width with matter and a nice thickness, honey and apricot and then that huge spherical mid palate where tannins kick in with a drying thing which creates some asperity and triggers a never-ending finish with that dry mouthfeel and the same honey, apricot touches.
I usually associate honey and apricot touches to sweet wines or some chenin crus. This is very dry, but with a weight and a nice presence. I'm a bit late on the trend but I'll look into orange wines some more (and Georgian wines too)

@Daniel Maquin Certainly sounds like an Orange wine from your excellent tasting notes. Probably extended skin contact in an amphora.

@Bob McDonald thank you sir. After careful checking this is what the second label says indeed.

Amber Dry Qvevri Mtsvane Rkatsiteli

I always have this perception that Georgian wine is very dry, though this was not the case. Quite fruity, dense, hints of oak. A nice change from the usual, though didn’t knock my socks off. — 2 years ago

Strong cherry and spice. Interesting balance of acid and tannins. The sharpness balances well with Georgian food. An enjoyable bottle. — 3 years ago
