Rkatsiteli, Imereti, Georgia

Let’s be real, Georgia is the orange AKA skin-contact wine capital of the universe and although the recent reinvigoration of the style has given it a certain du jour quality, qvevri-aged, skin contact wine originated in the country 8000 years ago! If you’ve never had the pleasure, Georgian wines are imbued with a deep sacrosanct energy that makes you feel like you’re drinking something truly mystical. Rkatsiteli, the most classical of Georgian white grape, is macerated on its skins in qvevri for 20 days, then pressed & racked to more clay qvevri and old French oak barrels. There is a beautiful balance between the freshness & acidity preserved by qvevri and the richness imparted by oak. The nose revs up with a hit of sandalwood oil so intoxicating a whiff would literally stop a stranger in their tracks. Black tea leaves, aniseed, menthol, dried apricot, almond and hazelnut round out the palate. If this wine were a person, it would be Elizabeth Taylor in Cleopatra. Pair with fragrant Moroccan tagine and heaps of gold jewelry.

We don't know if you've heard this, but Canada is a truly WILD place to import wine. Each province is it's own country with super strict rules. For ages, so much of the very best natural wine never made it into the province. That is changing in such an exciting way. We started our own import company to bring you some of our very favourite wines from around the world at the sharpest prices - this allows us to travel, fall in love with a wine, and bring right to your doorstep without a middle person. Put simply, as the importer, we shave one layer off the supply chain. We offer these sweet wholesale discounts when you bundle. From 1, 3 to 6 packs you'll find serious savings. The GWI sticker - Grape Witch Imports - means not only that we strongly stand behind the producer, it also means you won't find a better deal anywhere else in town. It also allows us to source many wines just for the shop - you'll find Ontario exclusives marked GWIE - Grape Witch Import Exclusive. Are you a licensee or producer looking to join our imports roster? Send us an email at hello@grapewitchimports.com
