Natural wine has no uniform definition. It is a general term used to describe artisanal wine made using organically and/or biodynamically grown hand-picked grapes which are vinified with little or no intervention. Winemakers often rely on indigenous yeast to catalyse natural fermentation, avoiding the use of any chemicals, additives or sulphites.
The result is wine which is alive, energetic, vibrant and unexpected – a welcomed contrast to the industrial practices of the wine industry.
Name of Estate/Domaine:
Tsitska is one of the most exciting white grapes native to Georgia. A lively grape varietal that has been compared to Albarino and Sauvignon Blanc in the past due to its crispness and its green treefruit flavours. The best examples will often have a decent acidity and some floral flavours.
*Natural wines are suitable for Vegans & Vegetarians
