More about this wine
What's old is what's new in 2016. Georgia (not that one) has a winemaking culture that's pretty much pre-historic. Shumi is a modern Georgian winery rooted in the local vinous traditions, namely, the incredible diversity of indigenous grapes.
Rkatsiteli is the most notable white grape of Georgia, and Shumi slays with it. It’s made in traditional qvevri (clay vessels) that Georgian winemakers used way before they became trendy. We’re talking about natural wines without chemicals, foreign yeasts, or filtration... next level juice. It has fleshy apple, pear, marzipan, and exotic cherimoya richness. It's oily and exotic like a Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay lovechild you’ll desperately want to babysit.
