var1Rkatsiteli grape variety

Because Rkatsiteli has relatively quiet aromatics, in our wine “Rkhatsiteli-Mtsvane”-2014 it’s blended with 20 percent Mtsvane Kakhuri and 10 percent of Khikhvi. to add high-toned aromatics and to soften the resulting wine.

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.

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%.
