ABOUT: Rkatsiteli is a Georgian grape variety that dates back to 3000 B.C., and is the oldest known grape variety in the world.

HISTORY: Dr. Konstantin Frank was the first to plant Rkatsiteli in the Finger Lakes during his experiments in the 1950s and 1960s. We grow just under 10 acres of Rkatsiteli on our Keuka Estate: 3.1 acres planted in 1983, 2.8 acres in 1987, and 3.8 acres in 2003. Our soils on Keuka Lake are shallow, Mardin and Volusia silt loam with high shale content which adds minerality, acidity, and elegance. Our vineyard is east-facing ranging from 980 ft to 1200 ft elevation and are at the deepest parts of Keuka Lake.

VINIFICATION: 100% Estate fruit from Keuka Estate. De-Stemmed. Direct Press. Pneumatic Press. Stainless Steel. Temperature Controlled. Traditional. No Malolatic Fermentation. Unoaked.

TASTING NOTES: Elegant, aromatic and Tropical with Apricot, Passion Fruit, Pineapple, and Honeydew with undertones of Ginger, White Pepper, and a touch of Grassiness. A great alternative for Sauvignon Blanc drinkers.
