This is from the Guria region of western Georgia near the Black Sea and made from 100% Chkhaveri grapes.  This is a light red grape, but when the wine is crushed it is immediately put into a Kvevri (Amphorae) so there is very little skin contact.  The resulting wine is amber in color.  It is a "natural" wine.  Orange gold (light amber) in color, clear and bright.  The nose is interesting with oranges and a "fruity bubble gum" quality along with slight honey and and slight pepper.  Good acidity with light tannins.  On the palate, plenty of orange citrus with a bit of pepper.  Tart, long finish.  Different but very tasty.  It should go well with pasta or vegetable dishes.  Drink over the next few years.
