Description

Okoros Wines Rkatsiteli

Okoros Wines Rkatsiteli is made from the best, selected grapes of Rkatsiteli veriety grown in Eastern Georgian (Kakheti) vineyards near village Nukriaani at Sighnaghi municipality. Wine is dry and aromatic with notes of piquant spices and paprika emerging over the pineapple and honeyed walnut aromas often associated with Rkatsiteli. The palate is savoury and crisp, medium bodied with crunchy cranberry and a tropical acidity.

Okro’s Wines is a family-run cellar in the small town on Sighnaghi in the Kakheti region. Established in 2004 the estate covers 5.5ha of vineyards, two cellars and a natural wine restaurant in the town.

Joni ‘Okro is one of the most respected natural winemakers in Kakheti, eastern Georgia, where he focuses on long skin contact amber wines. His Kakhetian wines originate from high altitude vineyards, instead of the hotter plains, this means the wines maintain freshness and vitality and have levels of concentration rarely seen.

Six Georgian varieties of grapes are grown on the estate: Rkatsiteli, Mtsvane, Saperavi, Budeshuri, Tsolikouri and Tavkveri. Focus is placed on natural winegrowing and winemaking and no additives or sulphur are used in the making of the wine.

He also works with grapes from Kartli and Imereti. Their vines are naturally grown with zero additions ensuring that the wines remain “alive” in the bottle. He uses traditional quervi in his winemaking The ancient tradition of quevri wine-making dates back over 7000 years, and the Georgians are currently seeking to give it special protected heritage status through UNESCO. Quevris are not the same as amphora – firstly, they are much larger, and are buried in the ground up their neck, to preserve a stable temperature.

The entire wine making process takes place within the quevri – initial fermentation right through to maturation, with the fermenting grape juice often being left on the skins and even grape stems to produce wines of exceptional flavour and complexity.

John shares his time between his job in Tbilisi as a Telecommunications Engineer, farming and producing his traditional family wines and recently running a popular tasting room and restaurant above his cellar in Signagni.
