Teliani Valley Glekhuri Kisiskhevi Saperavi Qvevri, Kakheti, Georgia
Teliani is an old winery dating back to the 1800s. Today they have a team of innovative young winemakers who are given the time, equipment, fruit, and support they need to create really exciting things. The Glekhuri Kisiskhevi Saperavi Qvevri really is the top of the range.
Kisiskhevi is a superior sub-region within the wider Kakheti area, particularly for Saperavi. The best grapes are selected for fermentation in Qvevri (clay amphorae), resulting in a deeply coloured and structured wine that is still remarkably approachable due to its vibrant primary fruit and roasted nut aromas.

This bottle will likely throw sediment. It is not a fault, it is a deliberate decision by the winemaker not to filter the wine so as to retain as much of its precious character as possible.
