Grapes: Aladasturi

Region: Imereti, Georgia

Vintage: 2018

Viticulture: Organic

Soils: Sandy Loam

Yeasts: Native

Vinification: The lightly pressed juice is fermented with the skins, with wild yeast and free from any additives. After fermentation is finished, the Qvevri are sealed and covered with soil until spring time. During the process, the solids in the wine slowly drop to the bottom of the Qvevri and the clear wine rises to the top. When temperatures drop out doors the fermentation is completely stopped, and the wine is transferred to new Qvevri and left to age for more months.

Aging: In Qvevri

Fining or Filtering: None

Notes from the Importer: Aladasturi is a rare variety from western Georgia. Its name means “god approves”, and it was named by Islamic invaders who loved the wine so much they proclaimed that “God approves!” and therefore they’re allowed to drink this varietal. It produces lighter but flavorful wine which is fruity, spicy and a joy to drink.
