Description

VITICULTURE
If orange is the new black, amber is the old orange.

Kakhuri N8 is a blend of 4 Georgian indigenous grape varieties – Rkatsiteli, Kakhuri Mtsvane, Khikhvi and Kisi, harvested in Kakheti, east Georgia. Grapes are exclusively hand selected and only the highest quality, fully ripe grapes are used for production.

WINEMAKEING

The wine is made using old Kakhetian traditional winemaking method with skin contact. Fermentation on skins takes place for 7-10 days, once the fermentation is finished the grape skins remain with the wine for 6 months.

OAK TREATMENT

None

TASTING NOTE
From Teliani’s more experimental ‘Winery 97’ project, this amber wine is a blend of four varieties that you can’t pronounce – luckily the rich dried fruit and nutty flavours and long dry refreshing finish are much easier to get your mouth around! Don’t chill it, you’ll just bring the tannins forward at the expense of the lovely flavours – serve cool, not cold!
FOOD MATCHING
The wine pairs especially well with fish dishes and cheeses. Serve cool, not cold.
