More stone fruit and almond than the Rhkatsiteli, more focus and freshness.

Also amphora aged, also amber color. Strong sweet peach nectar on nose but not sweet at all on palate. This also has a hint of soy sauce I mentioned for the first wine. But it's not a bad thing, just I can't find other expression. Anyway very clear and well balanced wine.

Nice orange wine from Georgia. Gives the impression of sweetness without actually being sweet. Some real grip without tannins, sort of an interesting orange wine mouthfeel. Nice.

Funky, weird, delicious. Oranges, carmel corn, tannins. Try it.
