A nose with notes of Amarena cherry, rosebud, plum, and a hint of smoke... Palate: rich, juicy, velvety, with a finish that highlights the sweetness of the fruit and a hint of acidity. A more consensual cuvée for those just discovering Georgian wine.
100% Budeshuri Saperavi (a very close cousin of Saperavi) from vines that have never been touched by chemicals, planted around the village of Tibaani at 400 meters altitude, in the famous wine region of Kakheti, in eastern Georgia. Vinification: Grapes in whole bunches are placed in qvevris – large Georgian amphorae buried up to their necks in the winery – followed by two weeks of maceration, and 15 months of ageing in qvevri. Bottled without filtration or fining, and zero sulphur.
