Tasting notes on the wine:
"The Who RU cuvee is a blend of rkatsiteli and mtsvane that has a taste of orange blossom, dry herbs, and fruits. This wine has an amazing tension of acid and tannin, plus intriguing flavors of apricots and other stone fruits.” — Tamy Rofe
About the winemaker:
"A selection of wines around ‘reclaiming heritage’ absolutely calls for a skin-contact wine! And who better to represent that category than the OGs from Georgia, where the tradition began 8,000 years ago. In Georgian mythology, Ocho is considered the protector of forests and wild animals. On their labels, you’ll see precious animals of Georgians fauna that are at risk of extinction (these guys are full-on ready to preserve tradition)." — Tamy Rofe
