Marina Kurtanidze began her small winery in 2012 and was the first female winemaker in Georgia to bottle and export her wine. This wine is a co-ferment of Tavkveri, a red grape, with Chinuri, a white grape. It says rosé on the label, but in Georgia any light red often gets labeled rosé, and this is more of a light red. It kind of reminds me of the Cornelissen Susucaru of years past, when there was zero sulfur. This also has a little smoky note, and it’s mixed with beetroot, rooibos tea, crunchy herbaceousness, and umami. 

Made in the time-honored 8,000 year-old method of whole cluster fermentation and aging in underground clay qvevri, this has zero sulfur added and is now showing some wild funk, but nothing too egregious. Chill it down a bit and try it with this recipe for phkali from Bon Appetit, a traditional Georgian dish made from dark leafy greens, walnuts, herbs, and pomegranate seeds.
