2017 Papari Valley 3 Qvevri Terraces Saperavi
Grapes are hand-harvested and put through a de-stemmer at sorting. The grapes are gently pressed before they are placed in the qvevri. Later, a portion of the stems are added to the qvevri and fermentation occurs naturally with natural yeast. Skin contact lasts one month. Aging and stabilization in the qvevri lasts 10 months. Wine is bottled unfiltered.
