History[edit]

The Georgians claim it as one of their national varieties but it's found in Russia and Ukraine as well.[citation needed] Since 1907, it has been blended with Aleksandrouli to make Khvanchkara wine.

Distribution and Wines[edit]

Used in Georgia to produce a varietal rosé and a medium bodied, semi-dry, chewy blend (with Alexandrouli) having good acids and claimed to have aroma flavors reminiscent of pomegranates.
