PHEASANT'S TEARS RKATSITELI 2016 is available to buy in increments of 1
An orange wine and a classic for any who are curious to try this oxidative, unique style. This Rkatsiteli was fermented and aged in qvevri, or clay anfora, for six months. The slow intake of oxygen makes this wine distinctly not gold, not brilliant, but appetizing. Aromas of raw honey, walnuts, and lightly dried apricots merge with a tannic palate. This wine comes from the Bodbiskhevi vineyard in Kakheti, Causcaus, Georgia.
Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"The mystery of wine lies deep in nature, and our only role as vignerons is to reveal it with love and awe, the way Georgians have been making wine for 8,000 years. Our natural wines are made entirely in qvevri inside the womb of the earth.

Our Rkatsiteli vineyards are located in Bodbis Khevi, Kakhedi. The soil is brown alluvial, with sandstone and lime rock. The Rkatsiteli grape is a rare endemic Georgian variety praised for its deep structure, fine tannins and dried fruit and walnut tones."
93/100 Gary Walsh, The Wine Front, March 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"Mandarin, walnut, a sort of honey floral perfume, herbal tea. Dusty and grainy, nutty but light tang of fresh oranges keeping it bright, peach iced tea juiciness, and stiff black tea tannin crunching away on a good long finish. Clean. Delicious. Engaging."
