Rkatsiteli Wine Details
Price: $15.00 per bottle

Description: Zesty orange peel aromas, citrus flavors and a long finish. A very rare wine for the white wine aficionado. Just say 'R-Kats!'

Varietal Definition
Widely grown in eastern Europe, this ancient vinifera reputedly originated in the Caucasus Mountains bordering Armenia and Turkey. Planted on small acreages in the Eastern U.S., mainly in the Finger Lakes region of New York state. Makes noticably acidic, balanced white wine with flavors somewhat reminiscent of a spicy Gewurztraminer and Johannisberg Riesling blend.


Todd says...
I always have a bottle of this wine in our cellar. The fruit stands out - similar to a riesling.
