Vineyard Notes

THE WINERY

Vazisubani Estate dates back to the 19th century and traces from one of Georgia’s most storied and cherished family lines, Chavchavadze. The Estate has been meticulously restored over the last decade, emerging as a premier wine-tourism destination built around the palace, gardens, winery, marani (wine cellar) and 35 hectares of estate vineyards.

Production Notes

THE WINEMAKING

Under watchful management of one of Georgia’s premier wine makers, grapes are harvested by hand, partially-destemmed and loaded as bunches directly into qvevri for fermentation and kept on skins for nine months, followed by aging in qvevri for another 2-3 months, then stainless steel for 12-18months at constant cool temperature until bottled.

THE VINEYARD & GRAPE

The grapes for this wine are sourced from the Vazisubani PDO, on the right bank of the Alazani River in the Kakheti region. Vines are planted 1500-1800feet elevation. Top soil is 14-16inches, black to loamy; Sub- soil is white clay with stony structure laying on a limestone strata with carbonated enclaves.

Three of Georgia’s most prestigious and classic whites are blended to create this dry bright amber.: Each grape expresses itself: Citrus from Rkatsiteli (‘er-kat-sit-tell-ee’), tropical fruit from Mtsvane (‘mitts-vawn-ee’) and Apricot from Kisi (‘kee-see’). Result is dried fruits, honey, green tea hints, complex bouquet with fine tannic structure.
