Dugladze Qvevri Kisi, from one of Georgia's leading wineries, is a traditional orange wine: Kisi grapes fermented & matured 6 months on skins, in qvevri amphorae. Rich, silky-textured with dried stone fruit notes.
The Kisi variety came close to extinction in 2000 yet has been revived as producers have recognised its potential to produce wines of great aroma, elegance and refinement. When made in Qvevri the tannins seem more fully integrated and subtle than other varieties. This outstanding orange wine, packaged like a top quality Provence rosé, is from the Maghraani district; the birthplace of the Kisi variety. Fermented on skins and stems in Qvevri for 6 months following harvest with regular punching down to maximise extraction.
Perfumed with aromas of dried mango, honeydew melon and orange rind, this has a full bodied yet silky and elegant palate finishing dry with supple elegant tannins. A top quality example of the genre.
