100% Rkatsiteli aged in Qvevri, from Kakheti, Georgia. Sustainable, Low Intervention.

HISTORY: Dugladze Wine Co was founded in 2004 and prides itself on combining traditional Georgian traditions, novelties and loyalty to the family business. They have vineyards across three wine regions: Kakheti overlooking the Alazani River in the Caucus foothills, and Imereti and Kartli nearer to the Black Sea. 

ABOUT: Many Georgian wines source grapes from small family vineyards, so ingrained in culture that they are a strong part of family heritage. There are several wine regions that hold 18 Specific Viticultural Areas held in high regard, with careful monitoring and low yields. The ancient Qvevri method is still in wide use. Qvevri are large clay pots, buried underground to their necks for perfect fermentation and aging temperature, often with skins and stems for full concentration. This method is a key part of orange wine production.  

TASTING NOTES: This very young qvevri Rkatsiteli has much more aromatic focus than most, with notes of dried Peach, Pear & Apple, w/ hints of Moss, Savory Herbs, & tinges of Smoke. The palate is nicely tannic, w/ grippy but integrated Tannins. Dried Orchard Fruit & Orange Rind. Good mineral tones round out the palate, leading to a nice, persistent finish.

FOOD PAIRING: Pair this wine with Lean/Grilled Fish, Poultry, White Meats, Lamb, Vegetarian dishes, Savory Dishes, or w/ Mild & Soft Cheeses.
