Traditional Qvevri Mtsvane (White)
The color is amber with tawny hues. Aroma of mature and dry fruit balancing nutty, honey overtones. Very well-expressed, rich and harmonious body with strong, but pleasant tannic structure. Dried apricots so lavishly coupled with back tones of mature yellow plums. Plentiful taste is long and dry with memorable sensation.
Perfectly pairs with light meat like turkey, quail and pork, an array of seafood and Greek and French salads.
Depending on the year, grapes may be or may not be de-stemmed. Partial de-stemming may also be applied. Crushing is mostly avoided as well as we do not chill the must. Instead, we pick grapes very early and try to start wild fermentation at the natural temperature. Fermentation in 900L - 2,500L qvevris. 5 to 6 months maceration and aging in qvevri. Bottled aged prior to release for 5 to 6 months.
