Qvevris Rkatsiteli has rich apricot favours, alongside notes of beeswax and walnuts. The finish combines a lively acidity with a subtle tannic grip, making it the perfect accompaniment to food. Wine is amber in colour.
This wine is produced in the 8000 year old ‘Qvevri method’. A Qvevri is a uniquely Georgian creation, a large subterranean clay jar, in which wines are fermented and matured on the grape skins.
Pair with- grilled/ barbecued meat/vegetables. Given it's unique tannin structure, it pairs well with both white and red meats. It also holds up well to spicy dishes. Interestingly – due to its versatility – it is possible to have a Qvevri amber wine throughout a whole meal (i.e. with your starter, fish course, main meal and/ or cheese board!)
