Variety: Otskhanuri Sapere
Type: Dry red
Otskhanuri Sapere grapes are not picked until late October or even mid-November. This wine when aged in oak casks, acquires a deep and elegant aroma as well as a rich and long finish. Otkshanuri sapere is considered to be Imereti’s best variety of red grape. Our Otskhanuri Sapere is made from the grapes grown in the best vineyards of Baghdati villages, Imereti.
We pick the selected grapes at 20-22% of sugariness and 6-8 titratable acidity. After removing the stem and pressing, the fermentation proceeds in oak barrels, at 23-28°C degrees of temperature. A two-year ageing continues in the oak barrels; subsequently, the wine further ages in the bottles.
