A vineyard selection of Ojaleshi (oh-jah-leh-shee) made by the young woman winemaker Gvantsa Abuladze, sister of Baia Abuladze. This is a very small production wine from a few rows that are planted in their estate in the village of Obcha. All red varietals grown in Imereti are higher acid, lower sugar grapes due to the humidity of the region. Ojaleshi is also planted in Racha, Guria and Samegrelo and it is rare to find a full on dry Ojaleshi and this is a real gem. All the fruit is estate grown, hand picked and hand sorted. After destemming the wine is pressed and put into qvevri with skins and fermentation starts spontaneously. Once fermentation is completed the skins are removed and the wine is aged in qvevri.
Grapes: 100% Ojaleshi
Maceration: During Fermentation
