Vinoterra Rkatsiteli 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

For true wine adventurers interested in the rare taste of 7,000 years worth of history in a glass, Vinoterra Winery produces very limited quantities of 100% varietal whites in the ancient Kakhetian style. Hand-picked, manually crushed in long wooden vessels, and poured into clay jars, these wines ferment naturally for six months with their seeds, stems and skins, and are lovingly turned by hand with wooden paddles every four hours. They are then aged in oak and bottled without filtering. It was in Georgia that several famous Italian winemakers learned this method and now produce their own whites of this style that command no less than five times the price. This wine is made from Rkatsiteli (ruh-KATT-si-TELL-i), the country's famed white wine variety known for its floral, spicy aromas. Rkatsiteli is an exotic dark tea color with a full, sumptuous bouquet of candied grapes, melon, and new wood; on the palate experience a generous, complex mélange of dried fruits, toasted nuts and new oak.
