Pheasants Tears Rkatsitel Orange Wine Georgia, organic, aromatic, full-bodied and rustic. The name comes from a Georgian tale in which the hero claims that only a truly outstanding wine could make a pheasant cry.
The Rkatsiteli is from thirty year old vines, fermented naturally underground for thirty days with wild yeasts in traditional clay amphorae called Qvevri. Golden amber in the glass with a nose of wild honey, but dry, and unexpectedly, full-bodied in the mouth with background notes of walnut and apricot. Rkatsiteli will stand up well with roasted chicken or more exotic fowl like duck or quail.
