Telti Kuruk is a grape variety native to Ukraine. The grapes of Telti Kuruk are thin and berries juicy and tender. Grapes were hand picked and fermented in stainless steel vats. Total production of 2022 harvest was only 900 bottles of wine.
The wine is young, a bit grassy with pear, peach, green apple and lemongrass notes. The aftertaste has hints of honey, some spiciness and a mineral finish. A mouth-watering and very memorable wine.
A wonderful aperitif. Beykush Telti Kuruk wine pairs beautifully with salads and fish. Serving temperature: 10-12°C/50-54F.
Beykush Winery, the most award-winning winery in Ukraine, is lying on 11-hectare plot on the Beykush peninsula of the Black Sea. It is surrounded by the sea on three sides, which works as a great natural air conditioner, softening the climate in dry years, and the wind reduces significantly the risk of fungal vine diseases. There are mostly French and Italian grape varieties, but also some experimental vineyards with Alvarinho, Timorasso and Tempranillo, Pinotage and local Telti-Kuruk.
