From Kardenakhi, Kakheti Shalva Gvaramadze 2018 is an orange wine produced from 100% Khikhvi in qvevri. Incredibly fragrant with cold black tea, dried fruit and spicy aromas, the wine is zesty and velvety with fresh melon, fig, fine herbs and honeyed citrus fruits, enticing and elegant on the palate. Khikhvi is an ancient grape widely grown in Eastern Georgia.

Khikhvi food pairings: salads, grilled chicken dishes, pork tenderloin.
