Archil Guniava - Tsitska 2018
Clear, pale lemon in the glass with lime curd, green pine cone, and marzipan on the nose. Soft and round on the palate, slight creaminess with salty notes. Great balance.
Archil has been making wine in Kvaliti, Imereti since he was a child, and he knows his craft well. Archil makes two wines: a white which is a blend of varieties including Tsolikouri, Krakhuna and Tsitska and a red from Otskhanuri Sapere. The press Archil uses is an old school tree trunk press that is over a hundred years old.
