Dugladze Ranina Kakhuri is a Georgian orange wine made from the Rkatsiteli grape, given 3 months skin contact in traditional qvevri amphora. The results is full bodied, with intense, nutty dried apricot flavours. Exotic and mouthfilling with a dry, gently tannic finish.
The wine itself is a fantastic value introduction to orange wine: full bodied, with intense, spiced peach, and complex dried apricot and smoke flavours. Exotic and mouthfilling with a dry, gently tannic finish, this can be drunk with a wide range of dishes, including roast chicken and mature cheeses.
To get the most out of the wine, decant and serve just below room temperature; drinks well over the course of 3 days. So much complexity for the price.
