Qvevris Rkatsiteli, Tbilvino Winery, Georgia, 2017, 75cl

The time on the skins gives the wine an amber colour, whilst also changing its flavour and texture. This wine has rich apricot flavours, alongside notes of beeswax and walnuts. The finish combines a lively acidity with a subtle tannic grip, making it the perfect accompaniment to food.

An example of the Georgia's most traditional style of wine, made in qvevris - clay amphorae. The grapes are crushed and the juice, skin and pips ae put in to the qvevris, which are then hermetically sealed and buried underground where fermentation takes place. the conical shape vessels allows yeast and sediments to settle to the bottom and the wine to circulate around the vessel. Buried for five months, a constant temperature is maintained when buried underground which is similar to the modern approach of temperature controlled tank. After five months, qvevris are dug up and wines are racked off.
