Description
 
100% Rkatsiteli. Vibrant fruit flavors accented by the natural sweetness are well balanced with embedded orange zest. The finish is fresh with fruity core leading to a tantalizing citrus and lingering aftertaste.

The fully frozen grapes in Rkatsiteli southern blocks of Kondoli vineyards and selected old Rkatsiteli vineyards in Ikalto and Gulgula villages in Kakheti have been picked in early December, when the outside temperature fell down to -9°C. At these temperatures the water portion of each grape separates from sugar, flavor and acid components. The water freezes and crystallizes leaving the other compounds as suspended liquid drops among the water crystals. The grapes were hand harvested early in the morning in small boxes, hand sorted in our winery, all the damaged grapes were removed and gently pressed in basket press. The fermentation was held for 2 months period in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature 16-18°C. After fermentation wine was kept cold around 0°C for 6 month. Light filtration complemented by bottling and 6 months bottle aging in our cellar before the release.
