Wine Review: This almost cleat colored Rkatsiteli from the Finger Lakes opens with a musty yellow grapefruit and lemon bouquet with a hint of matchstick. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with integrated medium acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round and bright. The flavor profile is a stony mineral and lemon-lime blend with notes of white peach. I also detected hints of yellow grapefruit and nectarine pit. The finish is a bit off-dry and drifts away nicely. This Rkatsiteli would pair well with grilled swordfish skewers. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: A Georgian grape variety that dates back to 3000 B.C. and the oldest known grape variety in the world. Our 2021 is elegant, aromatic, and tropical with apricot, passion fruit, pineapple, and honeydew with undertones of ginger, white pepper, and a touch of grassiness. A great alternative for Sauvignon Blanc drinkers. Pair with sushi, seafood, and salads (citrus, vinaigrette).
