Don’t let the difficult names put you off trying one of Georgia’s best regarded controlled appellations for dry white wines. Tsinandali is in the heart of Kakheti, on the south-west bank of the Alazani River, where the soil is light clay and calcareous. It’s made from a blend of 80% Rkatsitelli and 20% Mtsvane, fermented cool in stainless steel to keep it fresh.
It’s a bright, greenish yellow wine, with soft subtle aromas of apple and almond, with a slightly peppery first taste, followed by a creamier and fruitier, and slightly woody finish.
The story of Tbilvino begins in early sixthies of the XX century.
