A symphony in the glass!

Busy on the palate, unmediated and natural in its flavour profile, Rkatsiteli Qvevri is a symphony in the glass. With aromas of stone fruits and hints of sun dried flowers, Rkatsiteli’s taste profile follows, with a noticeably acidic yet balanced full flavour profile and good body. Complex notes of orange peel, apricots, spices & honey follow due to the traditional Georgian qvevri method; with somewhat nutty, earthy texture, finishing long and full.

How to serve it:

10-12 C

Pairs well with:

Chicken, Salads, Robust fish

  • Kakheti Region

    In the eastern part of Georgia, nestled in the foothills of the Caucasus, lies the Kakheti region; a particularly dry area of Georgia with dark-coloured red-ish iron rich soil where location and climatic conditions play an essential role in the terroir. Vineyards are cultivated at an altitude of 250-800 meters above sea level, with either humid subtropical or continental climates dominating local microclimates. The combination of dry air from the Caspian Sea coupled with moist air masses drifting in from the Black Sea and cool downdrafts sliding off the mountains creates a unique oenological landscape like no other.

Product Details

Winemaking Notes:

This award-winning wine is produced in limited quantities. With vines minimally cultivated. Paying constant attention to preserving the natural biodiversity of Svanidze’s vineyards. This commitment is continued throughout all harmonic grape picking and processing routines. With all of Svanidze’s wines combining traditionality and modernity. Grapes are carefully picked, crushed and fermented in qvevri (enormous hand-made earthenware urns buried into the ground) where they provide a more neutral winemaking vessel in which the Rkatsiteli grape can ferment, breathe and evolve. With grapes left on their skins for months, the result is an amber coloured, macerated ‘orange’ wine. A wine that’s becoming increasingly popular. In this method, white grapes are treated as red, extracting more aromas and tannins and adding complexity.
