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. #buywineonline
Flavor-wise, white wine is to orange wine what fresh custard is to crème brulee —you’ve just further developed the flavors. With orange wine, this happens by leaving the grape juice on the grape skins for longer than you would with a typical white, giving it more structure and making it imminently pairable.
