This strange ceramic bottle and the even stranger name Mukuzani comes from a village in Georgia called Mukuzani. The grape also has the same name. Usually the Mukuzani wine is left to age in oak barrels for longer than 2 years.

The wine is extremely dry with very strong nose of herbs and oak. The colour is dark ruby. The taste is a bit edgy and soar. Not exactly my type of wine, but probably goes well with heavy red meats.

We had this wine on New Year's Eve and most of my friends who tried it did not approve, because of its complexity. I wasn't charmed by the taste also, but the beautiful bottle made me buy it and try it. Costs about 10 Euro in supermarkets.
