Rkatsiteli 04 block of Kondoli vineyards are situated at the actual proximity to the Alazani River. From the middle of October the early dew and midday sun causes specific fungal infection of the berries, which is called Botrytis Cinarea or “Noble Rot”. Remarkable fungus paradoxically transforms decay into gold, concentrating sugar in every grape berry and enriching with specific, characteristic aromas. The grapes were hand harvested at the end of November in small boxes, hand sorted in our winery and gently pressed in basket press. The fermentation and maturation for 9 months was held in French oak barrels. Thus the first Georgian Late vintage wine was born. Light filtration complemented by bottling and 6 month bottle aging in our cellar before the release.

Tasting Notes

Deep yellow color with golden reflection.
Nose reveals complex ripe pineapple, dried plum and honey aromas integrated with the notes derived from oak aging.
Full bodied taste is dominated by peach and quince jam aromas opposed by natural sourness of the wine. The exquisite sweetness is balanced by the long smoky vanilla oak finish with the touch of citrus zests.
