Tsolikouri, the Nikoladze family’s wine cellar, 2011

This wine could be thought of as the strangest and most exotic of all the wines produced in Georgia over the past few years. Doubtless only few people have ever tasted Tsolikouri left to ferment in churi (western Georgian qvevri) in contact with the grape marc and stalks before being left to age in churi for six months. Some lovers of Imeretian wine might be shocked by this wine, whereas others might be pleasantly surprised. The bouquet of this amber-coloured wine is dominated by notes of dried fruit such as apples and apricots, which later give way to an aroma of orange peel. This wine is pleasantly acidic and full of strong tannins, and besides its long finish another distinguishing characteristic is its freshness.
