Abdushelishvili’s Marani - Rkatsiteli 2018
Producer: Abdushelishvili’s Marani
Wine name: Rkatsiteli
ABV: 14.0

A well balanced qvevri Rkatsiteli, with a ripe apple core and some smoky tannins on the finish. The aromas are also of apple with a raisined hint – a clue to the high ripeness level here.
Overall a little one-dimensional at the moment – lacking depth. That said, there’s a nice harmony about the wine, with great structure and just enough acidity to keep a feeling of freshness. So it wouldn’t hurt to cellar this for a year or two and see what happens.
Unfiltered with low sulphites. Gorgeous burnished amber hue.
