Only a total of 50 were awarded the highly sought-after accolade of “Best in Show”.
Glekhuri Rkatsiteli Qvevri 2018 stood out achieving the “Best in Show” Award with points 97 for this particular wine! It is the highest recognition for DWWA Tasting System and only 50 wines received this medal.
“Outstanding depth of character both in terms of their aromatic repertoire, and in terms of their flavours and textures. This deep golden Rkatsiteli from Georgia's leading region of Kakheti is typical. Imagine stepping into an warm room full of stored fruits and nuts, with some cloth-wrapped cheeses in a corner and one or two dried sausages hanging from the beams: that's what this wine smells of. On the palate, it is deep, broad, low in acidity but rich in grippy tannins, with that composite of fruit and protein allusions cleanly evident. Make sure you don't serve it too cold, and serve it with foods, too, like mezze or Asian dishes.”- Glekhuri Rkatsiteli Qvevri 2018 described by Decanter.com
It is worth mentioning that for second year in a row Teliani Valley is the first and only “Best in show” award winning wine from Georgia and in the group of Caucasus Region and Eurasia. This is a huge success for the whole Country. Glekhuri Kisi Qvevri 2017 was the first Georgian wine to receive the highest recognition by DWWA2019.
