Description

Tbilvino Qvevris Rkatsiteli

“This entry-level Tbilvino Qvevris Rkatsiteli wine is an excellent introduction to the orange wine style, made with the traditional 6 months of skin contact, but less stems. Ripe apricot and pear fruit are supported by firm, but unobtrusive phenolics. There’s a typical hint of jasmine green tea on the nose. Drink 2019-2026” – 89/100 points, Decanter, September 2019

Winemaking

This wine is produced in the 8000 year old ‘Qvevri method’. A Qvevri is a uniquely Georgian creation, a large subterranean clay jar, in which wines are fermented and matured on the grape skins.

This gives Qvevri amber wines tannins approaching those of red wines, as well as a complexity of flavour and structure not found in other white wines.

Producer

Tbilvino is one of the biggest and most successful companies in Georgia. Its products are known, appreciated and trusted in more than 30 countries around the world. Experienced winemakers, a variety of local grape types and a combination of traditional techniques with new technologies are what makes the company able to offer wine lovers a high quality product and a variety of choices.

The history of Tbilvino dates back to the last century. In 1962, the largest wine factory was opened in Georgia, which soon acquired a significant place on the market and gained international recognition.

Since 1999, the company has been led by brothers – Zurab and Giorgi Margvelashvili. New administration began a completely new stage in Tbilvino’s history. Modern philosophy of wine production was introduced and the main idea of the philosophy became a consumer with individual desires and different taste.

Reconstruction of Tbilisi winery was completed in 2008. The building was fully renovated and equipped with modern technologies. During the same year, Tbilvino obtained ISO 22000 and ISO 9001 certificates and, as a result, became a member of the Certified Business Academy (ACB).

A new winery in Kvareli was launched in 2012. The grape processing and wine stabilization processes in Kvareli winery are performed according to the traditional methods, using the latest technologies.

Nowadays Tbilvino owns two big wineries that allow the company to produce 7.5 million bottles of wine annually. Tbilvino also owns 226 hectares of vineyards in Mukuzani and Kindzmarauli micro-zones, equipped with drip irrigation system. Vineyard cultivation process started with the consultation of Italian wine-makers in 2013, and the company was able to receive its very first harvest in 2017.

Tbilvino has received a great deal of international recognition and has won numerous prices in a number of international competitions, such as Decanter London, IWSC, IWC, Mondial, Berlin Wine Trophy and more.

Domaine des Ballandors Quincy 2020

This is the village adjacent to Sancerre and Pouilly Fume where wines of similar style are made but because of Quincy’s ‘lesser’ name at much reduced cost. This wine is a testament to that; the flavours and aromas achieved in this wine are equivalent to any top flight Sancerre, with ‘grippy’ edgy grapefruit notes and steely crisp fruit. When Anton Beukes, winemaker at the Môreson Winery in South Africa, tasted this wine at supper, he said; ‘This is the wine I would love to make’ - Anton makes some very serious wines, so what an accolade! Winner of Best French White Wine at ‘France under one roof’ London 2005.

Peter Lehmann Margaret Semillon 2013

While bottle ageing in the Tanunda cellars, the wine has developed an attractive vibrant green/gold colour. The bouquet shows hints of lemon flower together with some waxy, honeyed development so typical of great, aged Semillon. The grapes were picked early in the season to retain more natural acidity and the palate is dry with a zesty finish.

Domaine Patrick Vauvy Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Attractively aromatic, rich dry Sauvignon showing the fruit character of fully ripe grapes. Exotic fruits in abundance on the nose and just a hint of mint. On the palate its fresh and tangy and the finish is fruity and moreish. The obvious accompaniment to asparagus with hollandaise but should be tried with goats cheese and works well with tuna dishes.

Alpha Zeta Garganega 2019

Relatively low fermentation temperatures help preserve the fresh fruit character of the grapes. 20% was fermented in large format oak. The wine was held in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks until bottling. Clear, pale straw in colour with fresh, delicate perfumes of stoned fruit, honeysuckle and almond blossom. On the palate, it is fresh but has surprising depth and a lovely peachy fruit character. A lively, lemonyzest finish offsets the ripe fruit on the palate.

The appearance of Dandelion Vineyards Enchanted Garden of the Eden Valley Riesling foretells the pristine and unalloyed quality of its fruit. Classic aromatics of citrus zest, lemon foliage and hints of dragon fruit flowers are etched by a clear steely minerality. This is an attractively textural wine displaying the variety's intense purity. Bone dry, its structure and length is underpinned by austere acidity.
