Always an interesting wine this year’s version is particularly strong with wonderful notes of tropical fruits and exotic flowers on the nose. The palate shows a hint of sweetness that is well balanced by the acidity and keeps the richness of this wine in check. Nice notes of citrus oils and herbs on the finish keep this interesting from start to finish. Worth a look! Try this with soft washed rind cow’s milk cheeses. 89pts

Tasted at the Wine Century annual dinner: Off dry but not overpowering at all. Rather well balanced floral and surprisingly mineral wine. Nice. Serve with asian/ spicy foods

An obscure Eastern European grape, Rkatsiteli is closest in style to a Pinot Gris. Bright and refreshing, with bold acidity and zesty lemon, green apple and lychee notes. Food pairing: pasta, poultry, seafood Flavor type: fruit-forward Body type: light Finish: crisp

Green herbs and grass add freshness to the sweet aromas of quince and peach preserves on this interpretation of the Georgian Rkatsiteli grape. Intense fruit flavors persist on the palate, highlighted by lemon-lime acidity and lime-pith astringency.

Made from an old Georgian (think Caucasus, not peach trees) grape variety, the waxy paraffin-scented aromas give way to pear and quince, tinged with red apple skin and lemony acids. There's a certain crystalline quality to the fruit that's very appealing.

A soft, rich, inviting white, full of floral and peach nuances that end with a hint of earthiness. Drink now.

When there's a sage-roasted chicken crisping in the oven, pull a bottle of this floral white from the fridge. It's sweet peach flavors and scents of grass and straw will meld right in with dinner.

Dr. Frank makes the country's preeminent rkatsiteli, a dry and minerally white in '08 with scents of green herbs and scallions. Its flavors are lean and angular, with notes of crisp pear and lees. Ideal with a slightly fatty fish, like whole striped bass.
