Vachnadziani Winery Kakheti Mtsvane 2020

A refreshing and floral white wine with a delicate bouquet

and finishing on a bitter citrus note.
Producer Note
Georgia is considered to be the ‘cradle of wine', as 8,000 year-old indigenous Rkatsiteli
grape seeds have been found in clay vessels. Vachnadziani was established in 1953
and is one of the oldest wineries in Georgia. During the Soviet years the vineyard fell into
disrepair, but now the vineyards and cellars have received considerable investment.
The aim is to preserve their ancient wine culture while combining it with cutting edge
technology. With over 1,000 hectares of vineyard, covering the Kakheti region in eastern
Georgia and the Imereti, Racha and Lechkhumi regions in western Georgia,
Vachnadziani cultivates 25 vine varieties - the majority of which are indigenous. Their
exciting and dynamic range reveals all the charm of this historic winemaking land.
Vineyard
The grapes are grown in the Kakheti region in eastern Georgia, where the climate is
moderately humid, with hot summers and cold winters. The vineyard is situated at an
altitude of 350 metres above sea level, where the vines are trained according to the
Vertical Shoot Position (VSP) method and are double Guyot pruned. The soils are clay
and loamy which provide good water retention properties to sustain the vines during
the hot summers. The vineyard is planted with cover grass between the vines to reduce
weeds; the soil is mulched and treated with organic mineral fertilisers. Mtsvane
(pronounced Mitse-VANee) is native to the Kakheti region, it translates as ‘green’ in
Georgian which refers to its yellow-green berry colour.
Winemaking
The grapes were carefully sorted at the winery, to ensure the highest quality fruit was
vinified. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks to retain the purity of fruit and
the varietal characteristics of the Mtsvane variety. Vinification lasted for two weeks at
controlled temperatures of 16°C.
Tasting Note
A refreshing white wine with a delicate bouquet of apple and citrus leading to
perfumed notes of peach and ripe pear, with a mineral and herbal note on the finish.
