Tasting Notes

A wilder rosé from winemaker Dato Kobidze. Spicy and herbal almost like a Chinato but simply delicious. Dry and a deeply hued ruby color. This is made from Chkhaveri - part of which came from a single tree vine that's over a 100 years old. Macerated on the skins for 25 days. Dato makes fascinating and expressive natural wines from his family vineyard in Ereketi in the western region of Guria, bordering the Black Sea. He loves to celebrate the Gurian varietals that nearly disappeared during the Soviet era.

Staff Pick Notes

Bordering the Black Sea, in the Western region of Georgia known as Guria, Dato Kobidze captures the truly compelling flavors of his homeland. This wine, a qvevri-fermented and aged rosé made from the local Chkhaveri grape, has a unique personality that is both fascinating and delicious. After 20-30 days of maceration, which extracts a deeper color and flavor from the skins, we are left with a darker and more savory rosé that is perfect for the dinner table. The aroma alone will command your attention, while the flavors fully open on your palate as sweet corn, wild cherries, and spices all dance together. The refreshing acidity and balanced tannins will elevate your next meal, especially when focused around Georgian appetizers such as eggplant rolls (nigvziani badrijani) or beet pkhaki. A one-of-a-kind wine with only 800 bottles produced!
