Crisp and clean Georgian white wine with lemongrass and white grapefruit notes. This is a great wine to try if you love the racy acidity of Pinot Grigio. Pair with shellfish.

Reviews and Ratings

Greg Hughes rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

80% Rkatsiteli and 20% Mtsvane from Kakheti, Georgia. Both these grapes tend to be used to make crisp, light, refreshing white wines with high acidity levels. Rkatsiteli has such high acid level, it tends to be picked very late. - way after other grapes (as late as mid-October). Mtsvane, apparently, means green/young as it is prized for its freshness. Rkatsiteli can be aged for a short period, however. It often picks up nutty and honeyed notes of oxidation.
This one is still very fresh. Pale hues of white flecked green. The aromas are very bright and have a lot of fresh orchard fruit. Some florality throughout amd a green herb note.
It reminds me a lot of Garganega. It has a lot of white flower and peach/nectarine. Great acidity and length.
What an unteresting (and well priced) opportunity to try a region less commercially available in North America. These two grapes made up a significant portion of Soviet wine production throughout the 20th century. Some conjecture Rkatsiteli was once of the world's most plentiful varietals.
Tsinandali Tbilvino (2015) is a white wine blend of 80% Rkatsiteli and 20% Mtsvane, two grapes indigenous to Georgia. Pair with grilled seafood. - Community Wine Reviews
