Kosta is back from the Georgian Toast with new wines for you to try! Get Georgian with us.

2016 Iveria Khikhvi, Kakheti ($15)
Kikhvi, pronounced (“Kikvi”) is made from the Khikhvi grape variety harvested in the Kakheti region of Georgia. A straw color, with aromas of quince and fruits. Harmonious and balanced with a strong finish. Perfect to pair with grilled meat, chicken, seafood and salads.

2015 Didebuli, Alazani Valley ($12)
100% Rkatsiteli, very light and refreshing off-dry white wine. Picked from the general Kakheti region, often much later in the season. Fruit forward, but very well balanced with Rkatsiteli's high acidity. Notes of dried fruit and candied citrus.

2014 Teleda Orgo, Orgo Rkatsiteli ($22) 
This orange or "amber" wine is made from 100% Rkatsiteli grapes. While rich in flavors, this is still a very friendly wine with light tannins. The wine is fermented and then aged in qvevri for approximately 6 months, using skin contact for the entire period of the qvevri aging. The darker color is determined by the longer skin contact, by the age of the vine trees, and by the terroir.

2015 Velistsikhe Veranda, Saperavi Qvevri ($25)
This qvevri red wine is made from the Saperavi varietal cultivated in the village of Velistskihe in Eastern Kakheti. Complex deep purple color, with aromas of ripe fruit. Cherry and plum on the palette with balanced tannins and pleasant astringency. Slightly earthy and pairs perfectly with steak, lamb and gamey meats.
