Château Khashmi Kisi Amber Wine
The Village of Khashmi is located in the Central Eastern area of The Republic of Georgia near the major city of Tbilisi. Wine production in Georgia is 8,000 years old and 500 varietals are in use today for commercial purposes. Georgians use their own scripted language influenced by the shape of growing grape vines. This style of amber wine is an everyday table wine meant to be enjoyed at mealtime. Hand sorted Kisi grapes spend two weeks on skins with continual punch downs during fermentation in Qvevri—man sized clay pots buried under ground. This wine has notes of green olives, chamomile, and sour citrus. Although no sulphur is added, it can be kept for up to 5 days. Qvevri wines are protected by UNESCO.
