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 Imereti region in western-central Georgia, where the
climate is humid, with hot summers and mild, warm winters. The vineyard is situated
at an altitude of 220 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 humic-calcareous. The vineyard is planted on slightly inclined slopes, terraces
and plains, all of which are orientated towards the north-west and the west. Cover
grass is planted between the vines to reduce weeds; the soil is mulched and treated
with organic mineral fertilisers. Krakhuna (pronounced Crack-OO-na) is indigenous to
Imereti in western Georgia; it translates as ‘crisp’ in Imeretian dialect.


Winemaking
Cold maceration took place over four hours to extract the delicate aromatics,
followed by fermentation in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures of 16°C,
lasting two weeks. The wine was rested on its fine lees for 10 days, imparting texture
and complexity.


Tasting Note
Delicate scents of lemon and banana lead to a clear and fresh palate with crisp
flavours and a uplifting finish.
