Rkatsiteli Vachnadziani

A lively white wine from Georgia. 

Pale straw in colour, with lively aromas of yellow and exotic tropical fruits this is a refreshing and easy-drinking wine with a lovely aromatic finish. This white is made from Rkatsiteli (pronounce it 'Ree-katsy-telly'), a grape that is capable of retaining a good crisp acidity despite the hot summer temperatures that can be reached in the eastern region of Kakheti. It is light and fresh and a good partner to grilled white fish, seafood, or salads.

More about the producer:

Georgia is considered to be the ‘cradle of wine', as 8,000 year-old indigenous Rkatsiteli grape seeds have been found in clay vessels. Vachnadziani was established in 1953 and is one of the oldest wineries in Georgia. During the Soviet years, the vineyard fell into disrepair, but now the vineyards and cellars have received considerable investment. The aim is to preserve their ancient wine culture while combining it with innovative technology. With over 1,000 hectares of vineyard, covering the Kakheti region in eastern Georgia and the Imereti, Racha and Lechkhumi regions in western Georgia, Vachnadziani cultivates 25 vine varieties - the majority of which are indigenous. Their exciting and dynamic range reveals all the charm of this historic winemaking land.
