Made from 100% Asuretuli Shala, a rare grape variety which was discovered growing wild in the woods around Asureti by German settlers in the early 19th Century. This grape is only grown in and around the small village of Asureti which is located in the central Bolnisi region, South East Georgia, where wine has been made since the 6th C BC. The vineyard is 700masl and is made up of clay and limestone soils. Skin contact fermentation takes place for 8-12 day. Once the alcoholic fermentation is finished skins are separated from the wine and it continues to mature 10 days in oak barrels and later continues to mature in stainless tank.
Red berries and rich cherry on the nose, with a lingering red pepper notes on the palate.
This wine pairs well with roast chicken, fruity tagines and tomato pasta dishes.
