At 17% ABV., this wine is unusually high in alcohol for a Medium-Sweet red. Science attributes this anomaly to an extremely rare yeast – Saccharomyces Oviformis – that grows in Papari Valley’s vineyard. It is activated in the final stages of fermentation. And, can have an alcohol tolerance of between 16% and 21%. In its natural form, this microorganism can only be found within the organic vineyards of a handful of winemaking regions around the world.
In short, they do not come much more Georgian than this… A fine Medium-Sweet red wine, made in one of the world’s most natural vineyards, using the traditional Qvevri winemaking method. Highly recommended. Organic
