This fine wine is made from the same dry white grape, a very old grape variety. Grapes are grown in the village of Zhaluri in the region of Akhmet (in Kakheti) in a very old vineyard of the famous family of winemakers Dakishvili (founded in 1930).
Dakishvili Kisi is produced according to the traditional method of Kakheti, which means that the grapes are fermented for 6 months in qvevri without the addition of yeast. Due to the method, wine cannot be described as ordinary white wine, the color is more amber. This wine is bottled without filtration.
Dakishvili Kisi has a beautiful amber color due to long-term storage in qvevri. This is an elegant wine with aromas of dried apricots and almonds. The taste is pleasant, harmonious, elegant and durable thanks to a well-balanced finish.
This white wine must be tasted, even if you prefer red wine. Dakishvili Kisi goes well with white meat, salted cheese or goat cheese.
In Japan, it was discovered that white qvevri wines (also called amber wines) blend perfectly with sushi. Tannins go well with soy sauce.
