2017 Papari Valley Rkatsiteli Qvevri 21
Amber wine with intensity. Notes of fruits (plum, apple, melon) and fragrant flowers. Well-balanced tannins and structure provide for a long finish. Alcohol – 13.5%
"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. The wine was made with the ‘3 terraces techinique,’ where the wine was pulled by gravity through the 3 stories of marani to achieve the best results. Skin contact lasts 4 months. Aging and stabilization in the qvevri lasts 10 months. Wine is bottled unfiltered.
