Rkatsiteli - 2017 - John Okruashvili
An intense nose with notes of almonds, beeswax, and damson plums... The palate is structured and aromatic, with a touch of acidity, and a long and tannic finish... A wine that will certainly unsettle those who aren’t already connoisseurs of orange wines – prepare yourself for a voyage!

100% Rkatsiteli from vines that have never been touched by chemicals, surrounded by lavender fields and planted at 400 meters altitude around the village of Nukriaani in the famous wine region of Kakheti in eastern Georgia. Vinification: whole bunches of grapes are placed in qvevris – large Georgian amphorae buried up to their necks in the winery – followed by six weeks of maceration on the skins, then 18 months of maturation in qvevri. Bottled on the 8th of February 2019, without filtration or fining, and zero 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
