Kakheti - the region in Georgia (it is not an USA state, but very old state on Caucasus). Traditional Kakhety wines are made by simple old technology from genuine vines - Rkatsiteli, Mtsvane, Saperavi, which is collected in September. They crush the grape and put it in kvevri (large ceramic jugs), burried in the ground. During fermentation they stir it some times a day. As fermentation stops - they tigtly close the jug till the spring. At spring they decant wine to barrels, and age it for about a year, but usualy drink it while the wine is young. The white wine has deep amber coolur, very extractive, and genuinely simple. The wine is perfect with fat meat, especially lamb. – Description from sergeyz
