Iago Chinuri 2020
Iago Chinuri is an organically made, clean and mineral orange wine from the Georgian Republic in the Caucasus. Opens with a floral nose that is quickly chased by hints of stone fruit and citrus. Pure and fresh palate that has a full texture and bright acidity. Orange citrus, apricot and honey flavours over a mineral backbone.
100% Chinuri, one of the best Georgian grape varieties. The fruit comes from Iago's 60-year-old 2 hectare vineyard. The vines grow in clay and limestone soil. This vineyard is one of the best in Georgia and is a historically well-known place in the Mukhran Valley.
Light crushing of the grapes before whole bunch fermentation in traditional qvevri with skin contact. Qvevri are traditional clay vessels. Matures for 6 in qvevris until bottling.
