100% Mtsvane. Intriguing medium amber color. Aromas with medium intensity, notes of iris, linden flowers, honey, honeysuckle, earth, ginger, hay, bruised apple, dried fruit, sweetness. Aromas to translate to flavors, but this is a dry wine that is generous on the palate. Citrusy notes of lemon curd, candied lemon, apricot, passion fruit, melon hay, cardamom, spicy ginger-fireball cinnamon, selenic wild capers, earthy oxidization, baked apple, dried peach, beeswax, hazelnut, toffee. The fermentation method brings about the oxidative characters and the reason for tannins in an otherwise white wine. Layers of complexity starting with the slight difference from noes to palate. But even on the palate the wine moves quickly from primary flavors to more intense tertiary notes with more exotic flavors. The wine is medium body with memorable medium plus finish.
