2011 Pheasant's Tears Kisi Republic of Georgia

SKU #1129890

Before the Greeks, before the Romans, it was the Georgians who were making wine. Archeological evidence dates back 8,000 years, references to Georgian wines can be found in the writings of Homor and Apollonius, and even the Georgian alphabet seems to have its origins in the shapes made by the tendrils of grape vines. Pheasant's Tears is the joint effort of American John Wurdeman, Georgian Gela Patalishvili and Swedes Erik Andermo, Jakob Mörndal and Henrik Callerstrand, to preserve and promote this amazing cultural legacy. All of Pheasant's Tears wines, including this Kisi, are fermented and aged in the clay vessels called qvevri. The 2011 unfurls an exotic and sweet nose of orchard blossom which reverberates on the refreshingly dry palate with citrus and stone fruit.

This old vine Kisi a wonderful example of an orange wine. It is full bodied and round with fresh citrus and dried citrus flavors. The color is a beautiful orange yellow and the wine is dry. The Pheasant's Tears Kisi is interesting and something to think about.It will go well with simple foods like roast chicken and mild cheeses.
