Flashback: Shavnabada Street Tasting

It's good to have friends in high places @orshi.kiss when life has got you down you better believe Georgian wines are there to save your ass. And nothing taste better then an improved wine tasting on the street and everything illegal tastes better just ask @goutlife. The 2004 Shavnabada #Mtsvane lifted my mind out of the gutter. Macerated in #Qvevri for 5 months then aged in qvevri for 11 years before bottling, it's beautiful. The 2009 Shavnabada #Saperavi is liquid earth, perfect for a bloody and very juicy piece of meat. #wine #georgianwine #shavnabadamonastery #winesofgeorgia #drivebywinetasting #BlueDanubewine #winesofinstagram #skincontact #vivino #delectableapp @bluedanubewine #losangeles

A big thank you to Pauline from Georgian Wine Seminar and Market Tasting at Republique with @bluedanubewine @wearenomadic @moderntaylor. Georgian wines tug on my soul. They evoke memories of places and experiences, I’ve had and have yet to have. Full of character, and I always feel like I have super human strength while sipping on a glass of this liquid gold. 

There are a four I’m obsessed with.

  1. Orgo Rkatsiteli: saltier than the tears of a hunted deer.
  2. Amiran Otskhanuri Sapere: burnt rubber, salty, and ballsy. More notes to come.
  3. Gotsa Chinuri Asureti: Notes to come.
  4. Pheasant’s Tears Kisi: Notes to come.
