MTSVANE (QVEVRI) VIN ORANGE 2017 - SHALAURI

0,75 L Orange Wine / Géorgie / Kakheti / Kistauri / 12,5 % vol

A huge Orange wine from the very cradle of the wine world: Georgia. A major discovery that should not be missed! Wonderful complexity...
The "Orange" wines are macerated with the skins and juice together, in the same way as in making red wine! This technique dates back to antiquity where it was produced in Georgia in the Caucasus area, the first wines in the world. The juice will take on a darker shade, more colourful than ordinary white wine (it is called orange wine even if it is not necessarily that colour!). But it will mainly develop a body and structure that is similar to a red since the grape skins contain tannins (which will of course be lighter than in red wines) but it will allow orange wines to accompany bolder and more complex dishes than most white wines. The wine we selected is an orange wine aged in Qvevri: large jars of clay buried underground. The nose of the wine is rich on dried yellow fruit, mirabelle plums, honey and even yuzu. The palate combines breadth and tension, with fine acidity that stretches beyond the finish of the wine itself and dense, ripe and generous material, velvety to the touch, which coats the palate. The balance between the two is very consistent, without excess alcohol, on notes of dried apricot and orange honey. The strong finish lingers on the palate, merely underlining the noble bitter notes and continuing on salt and spice where the tannins are present and participate in the overall balance.
