Rkatsiteli is an old grape. Extremely old. It’s mainspring was Georgia and is worth knowing just how flexible and “survivable” these vines have been.
Here’s a cherry that O found on Wiki:
“This ancient vinifera originates in Georgia and is one of the oldest grape varieties.[1] In Georgia, clay vessels were found with seeds of Rkatsiteli grapes which date back to 3000 BC.”

The color is a lemony bit of gold. The nose is bright and laced with melon and touches of peach. The body is a rush of refreshing acidity that round out on the palate in a “zesty fashion” which stamps those refreshing flavors in the back of your mind.

Solid dry Riesling. Chiseled, racy style with bracing acidity. A tad one-dimensional, but nonetheless delicious and a worthy food companion.

Pear, apple, pithy lemon, peach, slate and hints of petrol. Electric acidity and great minerality. Good structure and length.

Picked this bottle up at the winery on a FLX region exploration trip about two years ago, drinking well tonight.

Nose is candied pineapple, wet slate and light/sweet petrol.
Palate has sweet yellow apple, under-ripe pineapple, medium acidity, medium minerality with nice, long finish.

A great QPR for $13-14, plus a good FLX vintage.

This New York Riesling is full of tart Granny Smith apples and lemon-lime citrus tones. Excellent with spicy food or as a cocktail wine.

Crisp and refreshing. Dry with a tense acidity that balances lemon, peach and petrol

One of our favorites. Floral on the nose and subtle hints of fruit complement the unique Finger Lakes taste.

Great acidity with flavors of lemon and apple. Also some mineral flavors. Really nice Reisling. $14. Bought at Riverdale Vintner.
