About Product

EXPERIENCE

NAME: Kisi is the name given to this rare grape. Very little is known about its origins and history.

CHARACTER: The rich amber color expresses a floral character of herbal tea. The fruits are tropical with mango and exotic citrus. The nose is a combination of orange flowers, lemon balm, and fresh herbs. The palate is grippy with tannins and the finish is lingering.

ENJOY WITH: A versatile food wine, we like this with Indian curries and exotic flavors from the Mediteranean from Greece, Turkey, the Middle East, and North Africa.

BEST RESULTS: Chill to 52-58° F before opening. Treat it like a chilled red wine. Enjoy 10 to 20 minutes after decanting, red wine glass.
