After 8,000 years of winemaking, it seems strange that so few of us in the West have tried Georgian wines – that’s the Republic of Georgia, formerly part of the Soviet Union.
It shines as a first course wine with deep, pleasing fruit. Highly Recommended (90-92).
The graceful mineral acidity in the finish makes continued sipping irresistible. Very Highly Recommended (96).
This white wine made with organic grapes you’ve probably never heard of is a great find at a great price. Recommended (88).
