Tasting Notes
Semillon, Riesling and Ugni Blanc were co-fermented on their skins in a single Georgian qvevri to yield a fascinating, saline, textural wine with great concentration.
Vineyard Notes
The co-planted varieties all came from the Old Quarter of the vineyard. NASAA certified organic and biodynamic.

"Delving into the great tradition of field blends gives us an insight into the adventurous souls within the Alkina winemaking crew, here tapping into a small vineyard patch in what is known as the Old Quarter to bring 95% semillon with the remainder riesling and ugni blanc to co-ferment on skins – a good portion in a Georgian clay qvevri with high skin to juice ratio. Left for nine months before pressing, the result has a golden complexion in the glass, flavour sensors of quince and dried mint, as well as the usual skin-contact white wine saline and rich textural feels. Bravely geared to drinkers of this niche style, fascinating in its own right, and brilliant with anchovy dishes."
