Grape: 100% Saperavi
Place of production: Appellation-controlled red medium sweet wine is produced from specially selected Saperavi grapes grown in the Akhasheni village, Gurjaani district. The vineyards are planted at 350-550 meters above the sea level on the mountain slopes with medium latitude.
Fermentation: Fermentation is done at a controlled temperature of 16/18°C. Warm ferments help produce a fleshier character of the final wines.
Tasting Notes: Wine has a well-preserved grape flavor with undertones of cherry and black plum. It has a very distinguishable, delicate, naturally sweet taste with a pleasant acidity.
Food Pairing: Akhasheni goes well with cherry tart and fruit jelly.
