The label says ‘I am Didimi from Dimi and this is my Krakhuna’ with a picture of the winemaker. Now, Didimi is seventy years old and not exactly a looker, but his wine should put some pep in your step!

Krakhuna is a white grape, indigenous to the Imereti region of western Georgia and is mostly found in the village of Dimi. Some say that Krakhuna is reminiscent of a dry, Loire Valley Chenin Blanc, and sure, it does have some lemon peel, pear and dried apricot - but not the honeyed waxiness - and there the similarity ends. Krakhuna has tannin from the skin contact and a searingly bright snappy acidic beauty that says it can only come from somewhere else.
