Vinification

Rkatsiteli 04 block of Kondoli vineyards are situated at the actual proximity to the Alazani River. From the middle of October the early dew and midday sun cause specific fungal infection of the berries called Botrytis Cinarea or “Noble Rot”. Remarkable fungus paradoxically transforms decay into gold, concentrating sugar in every grape berry and enriching with specific, characteristic aromas. The grapes were hand harvested at the end of November in small boxes, hand sorted in our winery and gently pressed in basket press and then fermented for two month at controlled temperature. Light filtration complemented by bottling and 6 month bottle aging in our cellar before the release.
