Selected blocks of Saperavi, Alexandreuli, and Merlot of Kondoli vineyards have been green harvested during the first days of véraison (August) in order to reduce the grape yield down to 7 tons per hectare and thus increase the overall quality and concentration of remaining fruit. All three (three means Sami in Georgian) grapes Alexandreuli, Saperavi, and Merlot were hand harvested in small boxes, hand sorted in our winery and then gently de-stemmed and crushed for farther fermentation, which took place in open lid 225L barrels. During the whole process of fermentation cap management was performed only by hand punching, thus overall mechanical impact on grape skins has been minimized and ensured soft extraction of tannin and coloring elements. After the 20 days long maceration, the wine was transferred to closed oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and aging for 12 months. Coarse filtration complemented by bottling and farther maturation in our cellar before the release.
