Kindzmareuli, Kakheti

Shalauri Cellars

Kakheti Rkatsiteli Mtsvane 2018

When I say I want an orange wine—this is what I want. It is clean, it is tannic, it is complex and it conjures up the mystique rightfully accompanying a wine aged in qvevri buried in this crazy planet we call Earth. It tastes of bitters, but also honey, and an resinous substance—let’s call it myrhh. Note to self: replenish incense stocks and refresh sense memories of such things. The tannins may manhandle you a bit but think of them as leading the dance, not cutting in where they aren’t wanted. — 17 days ago

Rkatsiteli 2019

Matté

This is the Tibaani bottling.
On the nose there’s a wonderfully complex mix of treacle tart, apricot pastry, sticky toffee pudding, Manuka honey, warm terracotta pot, flapjack, gingerbread, yellow raisins and toasted almonds.
The palate shows spicy apricot, turmeric and gingerbread character, the tannins are sapid, firm but chalky and quite fine, certainly a wine that works best with food.
(Worked all with a chicken curry).

Kakheti Rkatsiteli 2019

This is one of the most refined amber wines I’ve had. It had the characteristic dried apricot and tea-like tannin, with a varietal, floral, bright whiff of rkatsiteli one would recognize from the white expression of the grape. Not surprisingly this complemented a Georgian meal of eggplant salad, turkey walnut stew and khachapuri perfectly. — 16 days ago
