Very traditional, Clay-aged Orange wine!
The traditional practice of using the Qvevri (or clay vessel) in winemaking has been producing natural wines without the use of chemicals, foreign yeasts, or filtration for centuries in Georgia. With the tradition, the Qvevri is buried underground during the aging process. With this aging, white Kisi grapes transform into a deep orange, tea-like, fragrant wine with dried fruit, sweet spices, and floral notes. The aging also makes it mildly tannic, quite dry, and food friendly. They say this about the traditional serving vessel on the label, "The clay doqi wine vessel symbolizes the tradition of hospitality at the Georgian table. Sharing wine is the essence of this tradition."
