Grape varieties & Wine's New Collection

var1Rkatsiteli grape variety

Lis the leading white grape variety in Georgia, comprising 43% of all vineyard plantings across 20,000 hectares. Is native to Kakheti Region in eastern Georgia.
Usage: Rkatsiteli is produced through both traditional and international vinication methods, and is the principal grape in most Kakhetian stile white wines. Because Rkatsiteli has relatively quiet aromatics, in our wine “Rkhatsiteli-Mtsvane”-2018 it’s blended with 20 percent Mtsvane Kakhuri and 10 percent of Khikhvi. to add high-toned aromatics and to soften the resulting wine.

var12Mtsvane Kakhuri grape variety

Literally, “green from Kakheti,” and commonly referred to simply as “Mtsvane,” Mtsvane Kakhuri grows well in Kakheti region. Thought to be older than Rkatsiteli, Mtsvane Kakhuri’s ve-lobed leaves are dark green and funneled;
Usage: Mtsvane Kakhuri is a solo performer in “Mtsvane” our dry white wine. Up to 20% of Mtsvane Kakhuri may be blended with Rkatsiteli and Khikhvi in “Rkatsiteli-Mtsvane” named wine.

var12Khikhvi grape variety

Khikhvi grows widely in eastern Georgia, especially in Kakheti where it originated.
Usage: Khikhvi is relatively versatile, as it can be produced in light dry, semi-sweet, sweet, styles. Its aromatic signature is distinctive: oral notes of boxwood and wild owers heighten broader avors of ripe yellow fruits and apricot.

Saperavi grape variety

var1sapervai

 

Saperavi, meaning “something to color with,” is Georgia’s leading red grape variety. A very old variety, it is Georgia’s most widely planted red grape. Saperavi can be dry, semisweet, full-on sweet, or fortied. Regardless of how produced, this tenturier variety gives wines that are inky, often fully opaque, with aromas of dark berries, licorice, grilled meat, tobacco, chocolate and spices. Texturally, the wine is sappy and tannic, with considerable acidity; alcohol levels can range from 12-15%. 

Usage: Red dry wine “Saperavi” (often with riper, more intense avors).
