Category: Appellation of Controlled Origin
Region: Lechkhumi, Tvishi micro - zone
Type: Semi-sweet white
Despite being quite a recent (1952) appellation compared to others, Tvishi wine is becoming popular both in Georgia and abroad. Thanks to the special soil and climate of Tvishi zone, the wine made from grapes grown in this area amazes all wine lovers.
We pick the selected grapes at 22-24% of sugariness and 7.5-8 titratable acidity. After removing the stem and de-pressing, the juice is moved to the cleansing reservoir and kept there for 15-18 hours. Then, the clear juice is removed from the sediment and moved into fermentation reservoirs. We add the pure culture yeast. The fermentation proceeds at a low temperature of 12-15°C degrees. As soon as the sugar lavel goes down to 7-5% during the fermentation, we cool it down to 3 degrees to stop fermentation and store it at -2-3°C degrees after filtration.
Aroma: Fruit aromas, complemented with sweet floral notes
Flavor: Sweet and highly acid, very impressive sharp-tasting notes.
Taste Wine at 10-12°C
