Description

Georgia is considered to be the ‘cradle of wine', as 8,000 year-old indigenous Rkatsiteli grape seeds have been found in clay vessels. Vachnadziani was established in 1953 and is one of the oldest wineries in Georgia. Vachnadziani cultivates 25 vine varieties - the majority of which are indigenous. Their exciting and dynamic range reveals all the charm of this historic winemaking land.

The wine is made from 100% Otskhanuri Sapere variety carefully sorted in the vineyard and then again upon arrival at the winery, berry by berry to ensure only the healthy, undamaged and best quality fruit was vinified. Skin-contact fermentation took place using the traditional Georgian method of clay jars known as Qvevri. These vessels have been recognised by UNESCO as a process of important cultural heritage. The alcoholic fermentation lasted for one week, followed by a maturation period of five months without skin contact.

Raspberry red in colour, this Otskhanuri Sapere delivers enticing aromas of plums and ripe berries complemented by herbal and floral notes. Full bodied, with balancing freshness and a long, dry and smoky finish.
