Wow! Briny Oysters and shellfish nose. Held the most brilliant tangerine color. Tannins registered on the tip of the tongue. — 9 months ago
By the glass with lunch, no formal notes. First time ever trying Khikhvi and I can imagine this is how wine was made 1000 years ago. Obviously extended skin contact with a copper salmon color. Funky fresh nose and complex on the palate with all sorts of interesting fruit and non-fruit things going on. Acid and tannin providing good structure. Certainly a change of pace and quite enjoyable actually. — 3 years ago

Super interesting blend. Full bodied opening and closes with a tannic minerality. Sour on the nose, very savory. Unripe strawberry fruit. Better chilled! — 7 months ago
This benefited from age and is in a great place. A tiny bit of oxidation, soft acidity, integrated tannins. A real winner and a sleeper surprise. — 8 months ago
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.
