Mtsvane - 2017 - John Okruashvili
A nose with notes of yellow peaches, exotic fruits, honey, and a hint of hazelnut... Palate: dry, taut, plenty of freshness. To be shared around the table with a few friends: this is a one-way ticket to Georgia, at only 11% ABV!

A cuvée of 100% Mtsvane, from vines that have never been touched by chemicals, planted at 750 metres altitude in the prestigious Manavi appellation in eastern Georgia. Harvested by hand, very low yields. Natural and unusual vinification for a white grape variety in Georgia: the bunches are directly pressed, no skin maceration. Here we have a "true" white wine, aged in qvevri. Bottled on the 2nd of February 2019 without filtration or fining, and zero added sulphur.
John Okruashvili... Better known by his estate’s name, Okro's Wine. Originally from Signaghi in the Kakheti region of eastern Georgia, John has been immersed in his country’s rich wine culture since he was born. But his personal adventure in wine truly began 2009 when he first bottled his own wine under the name Okro. To taste the wines of Signaghi is to return to the origins of viticulture:...All wines
