Three different grape varieties - Rkatsiteli, Mtsvane and Tsolikauri, are hand-picked at the optimum of their maturity. Softly de-stemmed grapes are cooled down to 4-6 °C and then gently pressed in the pneumatic press. Later, the settled and clear juice starts fermenting slowly at precisely controlled temperature (15-18°C) in stainless steel tanks. When the fermenting juice reaches optimum sugar/acidity balance, fermentation is stopped by cooling, in order to retain the natural sweetness and freshness of the wine. Wine is usually bottled within few months after the vintage.
