Enjoy it now, or cellar for a few years. No need to decant before serving.

Archil Guniava Wine Cellar is a family-run winery in the western part of Georgia’s mountainous heart. The Imereti region has a rich wine-making history and its own crop of indigenous grapes that help to form a unique character.

The winery is run by Archil Guniava, a crafter of enchanting wines who has set up shop in his home village of Kvaliti. He places a strong emphasis on quality over quantity, striving for low yields in his 1.5-hectare vineyard and producing just 18000 bottles per year. Archil Guniava’s wines offer an exceptional taste of an underrated terroir that any wine connoisseur should be eager to explore.

This wine is crafted from one of Georgia’s oldest grape varietals, Krakhuna. The beautiful amber colour is complemented by a bouquet of “orange” aromas. You can discover rich scents of citrus peel, orange marmalade and dried apricot, all of which continue onto the palate. It is pleasantly acidic, juicy and mouth-filling, with honeyed elements and notes of vanilla, clay and spice revealing themselves as you sip. Krakhuna is a fantastic, crunchy introduction to the world of Georgian amber/white wines. We recommend pairing it with some pork and apple sauce, crackling battered dishes such as tempura, or traditional Georgian food.
