2019 Goruli Mtsvane
This is an excellent example of Georgian wine traditions in a bottle. The wine smells of aged flowers, dried fruits, & a lovely herbaceous finish. It fills your mouth with an elegant yet full-bodied, savoury splash of ripe tangerines on the palate. This is a wine meant for lamb & all the fixings.
The grapes come from the area of the village of Mukhrani in Kartli. They are harvested manually, with whole cluster vinification and seven months of maceration and ferment at room temperature—minimal addition of sulphur before bottling, no clarification or filtration—subsequently, ten months of ageing in amphora.
