PEAR & GENTLY TROPICAL FRUIT, FLORAL NOTES & SWEET SPICE
The ancient Rkatsiteli grape is native to the nation of Georgia – the cradle of viticultural pursuits. This charming example, however, hails from the Finger Lakes of New York and brims with vibrant acidity and fresh flowers on the nose. Layers of tree and tropical fruit extend into crispness on the finish, leading to an overall impression of roundness and zeal. If you’re searching for a new, exotic discover, look no further!
Serving Suggestion: Spicy fish curry w/ kaffir lime, Tom Yum w/shrimp or Pad Thai. Dry spice-rubbed chicken kabobs w/ charred lemon juice.
