At the end of October Saperavi grapes were hand-harvested in small boxes, hand sorted in our ‘MARANI’, lightly crushed into historical Georgian clay wine vessels ‘QVEVRI’ buried in the winery’s earthen floor. The fermentation was performed by natural yeast, found on grape skins. After eight-day contact with crushed grapes and stems wine juice is separated and fermentation process continued in another Qvevri. After the long, up to 6 month of maceration, the wine was decanted and transferred gently into another Qvevri for ageing. The wine was bottled unfiltered.
