Pheasant's Tears, Poliphonia

Write a Review

Vintage: 2020

Varietals: This wine is a blend of over 100 indigenous red and white varieties in Georgia

Farming: Organic, Unfined/Unfiltered, No to low added SO2

Matured in a qveri, this wine has bags of fresh dark fruit with a whisper of funk. The wine is incredibly moreish, a perfect step off into the unusual. Delicious, more like a light red than a rosé, with sappy fruit, a nice herbal twist and present tannins. The idea behind it is lovely

Phesant's Tears is always a phenomenal buy and go-to. It is very much a living wine that’s best drunk in a single session.

Spontaneous fermentation and aging in Qvevri.

Since all of our wines are aged exclusively in qvevri, no flavors are imparted from oak barrels. What some might consider a lack of oak we view as an opportunity to let the quality of the grapes and the resulting wine shine through.
