Dear Guests, from 24th of March our restaurant will remain closed until further notice.
Dry red grape wine from the endemic Saperavi varieties, harvested manually in a small vineyard near the village of Shakriani, at the foot of the Caucasus (Kakheti region, the valley of the Alazani River). The wine has a deep color, a fruity nose with notes of cherry stones and ripe red fruit, a silky body and an earthy finish with notes of wood. This wine is unfiltered and it has undergone a natural fermentation process, slowly maturing for a year in old-fashioned kvevri. The wine may leave deposits in the bottle, therefore decanting is recommended. And, it is the most enjoyable when tasted in the company of friends! In 2018, we produced only 2,400 bottles for the 100th birthday of Grandfather Elizbar Turkestanishvili.
This dry red wine was made in our village of Kisishevy, in Georgia, from the endemic vine stock SAPERAVI. In August, we cut off some grapes from the vines in order to limit the harvest to seven tonnes per hectare so as to increase the quality of the remaining grapes and improve the taste of the future wine. At the end of September, we picked the ripe grapes and manually selected them in our vinery. During the whole fermentation process, which takes place in Qvevri in our winery, we regularly mix the grapes with the help of special wooden batons. Qvevri are traditional large Georgian earthenware vessels, the shape of amphora without handles, which have been used for the past 8,000 years. Once the long maceration is completed, we pour the wine into new Qvevri. This 2020 wine aged for ten months in Qvevri bringing complex flavours, a deep aroma of sun-dried forest fruits and a note of dates. A “Teinturier” grape, Saperavi gives our wine its lovely deep colour and big, but well integrated, tannins follow. We only made 4,100 bottles of this wine which goes well with hard cheeses, roasted red meat and poultry.
“We are happy to dedicate this unique wine to those who appreciate traditional craft wines made with love and passion.” – Davit Turkestanishvili
