Tsitska - 2017 - John Okruashvili
Nose carried by notes of yellow apple, cantaloupe, a touch of exotic fruits (pineapple among others). A perfect juice for the sunny season in short! Palate: surprising, no references... But a wine that remains accessible to those uninitiated to Georgian nectars, a good entry into the matter.

100% Tsitska, from old vines that have never been touched by chemicals, planted in the famous region of Imereti, in western Georgia, precisely in the very small village of Obcha. Harvested by hand, of course, and 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 6th 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
