Great Georgian pick from primrose. Tart and sour with a nice finish. — 3 years ago
The producer of this lovely wine likens this ancient Georgian variety to sauvignon blanc. While this did have similar aromas of grass and lemon pith, as well as tropical fruit notes on the palate, I found this to be softer, and less tangy, than sauv blanc. Almost tastes like sauv blanc blended with riesling! 100% Rkatsiteli. 9/15/22. — a year ago
Cherry, hibiscus, a bit of spritz. Banger of a Georgian rosé. — 3 years ago
Earthy Saperavi, with a long and potent finish of pepper and earth. One of the best Saperavis I have had. Perfect with Georgian lamb dishes. — 4 years ago
Nose has carmel dipped strawberry, dried lemon zest, under-ripe lychee, grilled pear slice, slightly oxidized yellow apple slice and dry crushed rock.
Palate has honey drizzle over lemon slice, neutral oak, dried pineapple, pineapple core with light acidity and medium finish. A very nice wine for 2018, hitting this much too young. At $48 this is good, if you can land for under $40 it would be a way better value.
Cork pulled for a 5H slow oxidation.
Great pairing tonight with 'Georgian Chicken'; (local) chicken thighs with dry rub, seared in cast iron, then simmered/baked in a walnut/cilantro/jalapeno/tomato paste sauce, finished with pomegranate seeds & pomegranate vinegar drizzle. — 3 years ago
