Grew on me quickly. Think of peach apricot tea that you brewed a bit too long. The tannins dry out the fruit but then loosen into a mouth watering finish. Fantastic with white bean, zuchinni, tomato, and shrimp. Def a good wine.

On the nose; ice tea, citrus peel, roasted blood orange, touch of oxidation, decayed roses and medium intensity volcanic soils. The color is orange and you definitely pick up the clay pot influence. The body is lean to medium. ice tea, citrus peel, roasted blood orange, orange peel, a touch of oxidation, decayed roses, delicate minerality, chalkiness, high round acidity, soft warm spices, savory notes with a really nice round finish. Producer notes; the winery is high up in the hills of the Asureti Valle...4200 feet above sea level. Asureti is an ancient village in the foothills of Georgia, about 30 minutes away from Tbilisi. Some of their wines are made with no skin contact and others with skin and stem contact for as long as 7 months. They also farm organically. Photos of; their vineyards, Beka Gotsadze and the qvevri clay fermentation pots. Pairings; sautéed fish to chicken mole tamales and take out Chinese.

Maybe the beat orange wine I've ever had. Intense aromas of apricot, narcissus hint of bitter almond/cyanic note. In the mouth the wine is surprising firm with noticeable tannins and a long oolong tea-like flavor/mouthfeel. Great fermented foods converging in flavor?
