Dilao Rkatsiteli Mtsvane Amber Dry 2019
A bouquet of melon and cantaloupe aromas thanks to the Mtsvane, good acidity thanks to Rkatsiteli and lighter softer tannin on the finish due to less time on the skins. Delicious to explore with food.
This is a 50%-50% blend of Rkatsiteli and Mtsvane grapes fermented and made in qvevri (large clay jars buried under the ground). This is an Amber or "Orange" wine style, but made in a lighter style with only 1 month of skin contact. It is a perfect introduction to the style.
Dila-o (dee-la-oh) is a new brand from the Teleda/Orgo winery with the ambition to make fantastic Georgian Qvevri wines that can promote traditional Georgian wine techniques among a broad segment of the US market by over delivering on story and quality for the price
