Drink it now or cellar for up to 5 years. No need to decant it.

The Barbale winery, founded in 2016, is headed by winemaker Berdia Berishvili who produces unique vintages with ancient traditional Georgian methods. The vineyards are located in the Kartli and Kakheti regions, famous for their wine history. The company cultivates native and rare vines with unique characteristics to produce ‘exceptional harvest’ organic wines.

The three most important native white grape varieties of Kakheti, Kisi (70%), Rkatsiteli (10%), and Mtsvane (20%) come together in this special blend to create a typical Kakheti orange wine produced with the traditional Qvevri method which consists of long fermentation, maceration, and subsequent aging of the wine in underground terracotta pots.

The Barbale Kisi Mtsvane Rkatsiteli shows the typical orange wine character with a beautiful amber color and a balanced tannin-acid structure. The nose is spoiled with delicate aromas of apples, pears and plums. The palate is lively, clear, and slightly warm. A light, fine spice note accompanies every sip, reminiscent of ginger, orange zest, and honey. This is the perfect wine for all fish dishes and for rich vegetarian tarts. It is ready now, but can also stay a couple of extra years in the cellar.
