Tsinandali is considered to be the flagship Georgian white wine. It was born in Tsinandali in 1830s, but only appeared on the market under the Tsinandali label in 1886. It was made by blending Rkatsiteli and Mtsvane Kakhuri. Our Tsinandali is aromatic, vigorous and full of character.
We pick the selected grapes at 18-22% of sugariness and 7.5-8 titratable acidity. After removing the stem and de-pressing, 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.
