Alaverdi Monastery Cellar 2010 Qvevri Traditional Kakhuri Dry Unfiltered Amber Wine Rkatsiteli (Kakheti)

Editors' Choice

From it's musky, perfumed to nose to it's intensely honeyed, dried-peach- and apricot-flavored palate, everything about this wine is mysterious and ethereal. Crafted by monks in an ancient Georgian monastery, this amber-hued wine is made from white grapes that were fermented and aged in clay vessels (qvevri) and that underwent extended skin contact, which resulted in a wine with puckering tannins and a richly textural mouthfeel. Anna Lee C. Iijima
