About Wine
100% Saperavi (pronounced saw-pear-ah-vee) grapes this wine is made in the 8,000 year old style in large clay jars called qvevri. Following open air fermentation and maceration the wine is racked into a new qvevri, sealed air-tight and aged for six months and then bottled. Some previous vintages saw some oak barrell aging but this vintage sees no oak.
