Tasting Notes

From importer Blue Danube: "This dry wine is made from the indigenous white grape variety Mtsvane sourced from the Napareuli wine region. Mtsvane (which means 'green' in Georgian) is characterized by light floral aromas and fruity flavors. It is often blended with Rkatsiteli. The fermentation was done in stainless steel tank resulting in a crisp, clean, refreshing wine. Makes for a nice aperitif or paired alongside grilled chicken dishes."

    If you're new to Georgian wines like I am, this is a fantastic introduction to one of the oldest wine making traditions in the world. Doqi is a collaboration between German born Burkhard Schuchmann & third generation Georgian winemaker Georgi Dakishrili. Doqi is one of three labels the duo produces and it combines traditional Georgian qvevri and Western style wine making techniques. Although the Mtsvane in this wine is fermented and aged in stainless steel, the history and tradition of the region is felt when tasting the wine. Produced in Georgia's most important viticulture region Kakheti, which produces three quarters of the country's wine grapes and has a unique soil called "Cinnamonic", consisting of sandy, iron rich calcareous clay said to bring a depth of flavor and a rustic, earthy note. The wine does possess an earthy florality, almost like a Gerber daisy. It's crisp and dry with notes of freshly sliced fennel, Seville orange, green apples and green almond. If you're looking to try something new, pick this up and give it a go, it's interesting and delicious.
