Iberieli Cecilia 2021, Rkatsiteli (50%)-Mtsvane (50%), Dry Amber, Qvevri, ABV 13.5%, 750ml

Made from indigenous Rkatsiteli and Mtsvane grapes grown in the famed Kakheti region of East Georgia. Cecila, named after Zurab Topuridze's grand-daughter, is made according to natural wine making standards using traditional Georgian Qvevri (buried clay vessel). A small amount of must was used, making the wine smooth and round. This amber (‘orange’) wine’s aroma is moderate to high intensity; pine tree, apple, citruses with slight smokiness noticed. Taste is soft exhibiting grapefruit & other citruses. Moderate to long finish.
Serve cool, not chilled, by the glass or pair with
