Kakheti Saperavi 2015

9.1

On the nose, wild dark berries, cherries, grilled meats, loamy dark soils and dark dry soils. The body is leaner for a red wine. Bright, wild dark berries, black raspberries, poached strawberries, grilled meats, soy, black olive pit with flesh, dry red roses, dry, dusty, dark tannins, soft leather, dry stems, coffee grounds, brilliant acidity and a round, lush, bright, drier fruit finish. A steal for $15. Producer notes; the winery is located in the village of Kisiskhevi in Eastern Georgia's Kakheti wine district. It produces wines out of three vineyard sites: Napareuli, Tsinandali, and Kindzmarauli and mostly use native Georgian grape varieties: Rkatsiteli, Mtsvane, Kisi, and Saperavi. Farming is sustainable in order to maintain biological diversity. Rkatsiteli is ancient variety from rocky vineyards around the village of Napareuli. The grapes are hand-harvested and are pressed and then the juice, grape skins, stalks and pips are poured into a qvevri for further fermentation. It's a large clay vessel. The qvevri is then sealed. After a maceration for several months with the skins, white wines will get an amber or orange color. Photos of; Burkhard Schuchmann and Georgi Dakishvili, vineyard and qvevri clay pots.

Vinoterra Kakheti Kisi 2011

This is a really pleasant traditional style orange wine. Floral notes and a mysterious toasted-herbs-de-provence round out this wine. Tannins are a bit rustic, but it works well in this wine. — 6 years ago
