Georgian grapes varieties


Mtsvane Kakhuri

Mtsvane Kakhuri
Literally, ‘green from Kakheti’, this variety grows well on the calcareous soils in Kakheti, south-eastern Georgia, particularly in PDOs of Tsinandali, Manavi, Gurjaani, Vazisubani and Kardenakhi.
 
When vinified in a European style, the young dry, white wine often has a greenish-straw tinge. Mtsvane Kakhuri imparts fresh white peach, floral, citrus and tropical aromas, with a light mineral undertone. It is quite dark and will show more apricot and stone fruit character when vinified in Qvevri.
