About Wine
A spectacular young vibrant and Powerful Saperavi was Shalauri Cellar's inaugural vintage and boy did they nail it. This wine has an edginess and depth that is unique to excellent Saperavi wines. This artisanal wine is produced by the traditional Qvevri Method -- an 8,000 year old uniquely Georgian that utilizes a huge clay jar, Qvevri, buried underneath the ground to allow wine fermentation and aging in an even, naturally cool condition.
