M E T H O D :

1. Lovamor, Alfredo Maestro 

Orange wine aged and fermented in steel tanks. This cuvee sees a wee bit of skin contact and is fermented with wild yeasts in steel vats with 6 days of skin. It matures in vats on the lees, clarifies naturally over the winter, and is eventually bottled unfined & unfiltered without the addition of SO2.

Lovamor’s appearance is slightly turbid and pink-tinged with savoury, funky notes woven through orchard fruits, flowers, and mineral notes as well as a red apple skin, phenolic bite on the dry finish. And we have a lot of love/amore for the label, little Red Riding Hood planting a smacker on the lips of the wolf.

2. Archil Guniava, Otskhanuri Sapere Blend
       

A blend of Otskhanuri Sapere and Tsolikouri grapes hand-harvested from halfy-trellised vines grown in clay soil. The white Tsolikouri grapes go into Qvevri first after a short maceration and press before the red Otskhanuri Sapere grapes are harvested in November, macerated, and pressed into the Qvevri along with some pomace and stems. The wine ages for a short period of time before being bottled unfined, unfiltered, and with zero additional SO2.

Reminiscent of a Loire Red, but with Georgian sensibilities. Denser red fruit and savory tomato mingle with a mushroomy aroma. Lightly tannic with a long, smoky finish. A perfect BBQ red. Serve at room temperature with a hearty Mediterranean feast.
