Type: Naturally Semi-sweet red
This wine produced since 1942, is the nation’s leadig semi-sweet red wine, in terms of quantity and individuality. Just one sip of our company’s Kindzmarauli is enough to remember if forever. The peculiarity of soil consisting of remnant black shale plays major role in the taste. This black shale washed down by the Duruji river has a high propensity to retain heat, which by increasing the temperature of the soil also increases the sweetness of the grapes and the quality of the wine.
We pick the selected grapes at 24-26% of sugariness and 7,5-8 titratable acidity. After removing the stem and de-pressing 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 18-22°. As soon as the sugar level goes down to 7-5% during the fermentation, we cool it down to 3 degrees to stop fermentation and store it at -2-3 degrees after filtration.
