Wine - Amber wine fermented naturally and aged in Qvevri for 7 months. 100% Kisi. Whole cluster fermentation (with skins and stems) results in an herbaceous wine that is slightly smokey with notes of apricot and black tea. Firm tannin make it a great wine to pair with a variety of dishes from white meats to spicy cuisine. Unfiltered and unfined.
