Tavkveri is a grape that really lights people up, and is one of my favorite Georgian varieties. Anastasia Akhvlediani and Mariam Palavandishvili have been making the Artana wines since 2014 in the Caucausus foothills. The line between rose and red in Georgia is different from the European and American boundaries. This is called a rose since it's direct press, but it functions more like a lighter red, as it shows off a lot of texture and earth. This is crazy delicious and complex, with lots of tangy, almost gamey brightness. Ripe cherry fruit complements the savory depth and sandalwood notes. Exciting and crowd-pleasing.
