Winemaker’s Challenge 2018


Best Eastern U.S. White Wine - 94pts – Platinum Medal


Horton Vineyards 2016 Rkatsiteli

Only 45 wines out of 1000 made it to the Platinum level - Here's the list...



Horton Vineyards, Orange County (Virginia) Rkatsiteli 2016 ($15):  This is primarily an East Coast grape variety popular in both New York and Virginia. Horton's expression of Rkatsiteli is brilliant. It delivers a stony minerality that is invigorating, but at the same time shows succulent aromas of nectarine and meyer lemon. This beautifully balanced wine exhibits crisp acidity that lifts the fruit and provides freshness and a clean finish. A Platinum award-winner at the 2018 Winemaker Challenge International Wine Competition. 94 Robert Whitley Jan 30, 2018
