2020 Pheasant's Tears Vardisperi Rkatsiteli11945
WINEMAKER: John Wurdeman
REGION: Kakheti, GE
Made from a pink mutation of rkatsiteli. Something like a rosé, bit like an amber, maybe even a light red, almost? Whatever, it just rules. Pretty wild stuff. Lifted and real ZIPPY.
Founded in 2007 by American artist John Wurdeman and Georgian farmer Gela Patalishvili, Pheasant's Tears aims to preserve Georgia's rich winemaking heritage dating back over 6000 years. All their wine is fermented and aged in qvevri, traditional Georgian vessels made of clay, lined with beeswax and buried in the ground.
