2010 Iago's Wine Chinuri Republic of Georgia

SKU #1089923

Iago is the man, Chinuri the grape. Iago has always farmed organically, and produces a small amount of Chinuri in the traditional Georgian way. This includes foot-stomping and ageing the wine in Qvevri. Qvevri are large clay vessels that are buried underground. The first vessels developed by humans for the purpose of aging and storing wine, the origins of this Georgian winemaking tradition traces its lineage back to the ancient origins of winemaking itself. This is all about substance - texture and layers - framed by bright acidity and fleeting nuances of dried fruits and minerals. Super rare, very cool wine.

I fell in love with this wine. It opens up a new, interesting and delicious wine experience. There are light mint and fruit like aromas that are followed by wine that is dry , tangy and light, with sublte smoke and cola flavors. Lago's Chinuri will go well with chicken or pork.
