Drink it now or hold it for a couple of years. Serve it at 10-12°C. No need to decant.

Baia Abuladze is a very young Georgian woman who, a few years ago, decided to take over the vineyards owned by her family which, for two generations, had produced grapes only for sale. Together with her sister and brother, Baia has been focusing on quality production, starting from the use of lunar calendars, viticulture with minimal effort, and traditional vinification in Qvevri, which here, in Imereti, are called Tchuri.

This classic dry amber wine from the Imereti wine region is produced from a blend of 20% of Tsitska, 60% of Tsolikouri, and 20% of Krakhuna. These three native grapes undergo one month of maceration on the skins before spontaneously fermenting in traditional Qvevri amphorae.

The wine has an intense and particular aromatic profile with delicious notes of persimmon, apricot, and citrus. On the palate, it reveals the perfect harmony between these local grape varieties: the elegant and velvety taste of Krakhuna, the freshness of the Tsitska, and the balanced finish of the Tsolikouri. It is a rich and full-bodied wine with a good finish. It goes well with poultry and not too fatty fish. Try it also with vegetarian Greek cuisine and fresh cheeses.
