Teliani Valley, Kakhuri No.8
Kakhuri no.8 is a blend of four indigenous white Georgian grape varieties harvested from vineyards planted at the bottom of the Caucasus mountains in Kakheti, the eastern region of Georgia. This unique blend is with skin contact, which gives the wine an amber colour. This wine has subtle aromas of herbs and dried fruit, medium-bodied and has a harmonious and balanced palate with soft tannins and a long aftertaste.
Ideal with spicy food, fish-based dishes, and cheeses.
Part of the experimental ‘Winery 97’ project; launched by the team behind Teliani Valley, these wines combine traditional Georgian winemaking with modern and innovative technique.
It was 1997 when two young winemakers started Teliani Valley. They did it for the liberty to make the wine they wanted – free and authentic. The roots of this company are in the personal sacrifice of cutting-edge winemakers pooling their passion and resources to make wines with an individual character. Teliani Valley was built with the mission to bring back the original soul to the beloved national symbol. Together, the winemakers started to apply their skills to make true Georgian wine by combining state of the art wine craft - the science of how to coax the best from nature - with wisdom and inherited know-how that comes from a line of winemakers stretching back 8,000 years. Teliani Valley cellar is located in Telavi, Kakheti Region in the heart of Georgian winemaking. The position of the vineyards, the soil and the climate contribute to creating a dazzling range of fresh, vibrant wines packed with character. Although their roots go back years and their connection with traditional winemaking is still strong, Teliani Valley today attracts and supports the most exciting winemakers in Georgia. Their team of innovative winemakers are given the time, equipment, fruit and support they need to create exciting modern styles of wines.
