    Varieties: 100% Rkatsiteli.

    One of the oldest varieties in the world, and an indigenous grape to Georgia. Rkatsiteli is the most widely planted white grape in Georgia, and during the Soviet Union was one of the most widely planted white grapes in the world.

    Place of production: Rkatsiteli grapes are sourced from the microzones of Kardenakhi, Tibaani, Tsinandali, Gurjaani and Napareuli in the Kakheti region of Georgia. Kakheti is Georgia’s major (and best) wine producing region, found in the east of the country.

    Fermentation: After settling, the juice is fermented at a controlled temperature of 12/14°C in tanks, to ensure maximum fruit intensity and crispness.

    Tasting profile: This wine displays an apple and stewed fruit aroma typical for this variety, with a slightly sour taste combined with apple and honey flavours. Due to its excellent structure Rkatsiteli is often blended with weaker grapes to give more body and length.

    Food pairing: Rkatsiteli goes well with steamed trout, chicken, turkey and vegetable salads.

    Variety: Saperavi 100%

    Of all Georgia’s grape varieties, saperavi is the one that is most exciting wine writers in the west. Saperavi is Georgia’s national grape, and translates as “inky” – referring to the depth of colour usually found in a saperavi wine. Saperavi is high in both tannins and acidity, making it an excellent wine for cellar aging.

    Place of production: Saperavi grapes are sourced from the main micro-zones of Mukuzani, Akhasheni, Khashmi, Kindzmarauli, Napareuli, Kvareli and Kondoli in the Kakheti region of Georgia.

    Fermentation: After four days on the skins, the wine is pressed off and finishes primary fermentation in tanks before undergoing secondary Malolactic fermentation at 25/27°C. Warm ferments help produce a fleshier character to the final wines.

    Tasting profile: Saperavi wine boasts a delicious aroma typical to this variety with the hints of fresh grapes, cherry and vanilla. The traditional blackberry and mulberry flavours of the Saperavi wine are perfectly combined with the notes of oak.

    Food pairing: Long-lingering finish and sweet mulberry characters go well with kebab, steak and pork ribs.

    Variety: Rkatsiteli 100%

    This new wine from Tbilvino is produced in the 7000 year old “quevri method.” A quevri is a uniquely Georgian creation, a large subterranean clay jar, in which wines are fermented and matured on both skins and stems. This gives quevri wines a tannin structure approaching those of red wines, as well as a complexity of flavour and structure not found in other white wines.

    Place of production: Rkatsiteli grapes are sourced from the micro- zones of Kardenakhi, Tibaani, Tsinandali, Gurjaani and Napareuli in the Kakheti region of Georgia.

    Pressing: This Kakhetian traditional type of wine is not pressed off the skins until 2-3 months after primary fermentation.

    Fermentation: Wine must is fermented on stem, skin and seeds at a controlled temperature of 14/16°C.

    Maceration: Considerable amount of time is spent with the skins for post-ferment maceration which helps the phenolic nature of the wine transfer into finer, more complex structures.

    Tasting profile: Quevris wine offers a deep and rich bouquet of pine, pear and quince. The presence of ripe stems in the fermentation gives complex floral aromas. Flavours include apple and stewed fruit.

    Recommended with veal, mutton and barbeque.
