About This Wine: A blend of two indigenous Imeretian varieties, Tsitska and Tsolikouri, made by the young woman winemaker Baia Abuladze. Both of the carieties are high-acid, lower-sugar grapes, adapted to the humid western Georgian climate. All the fruit is estate-grown in the village of Obcha, hand-picked, and hand-sorted. After destemming, the wine is pressed and put into stainless steel with partial skin contact for spontaneous fermentation.
