Baia's Wine - Qvevri Tsitska Amber Wine 2018
Using grapes grown on Baia’s vineyard, this beautiful amber wine has aromas of persimmon, apricot and citrus on the nose. The wine tastes harmonious and velvety, with flavours of dried apricot, soft lemon and honey that create a full-bodied and dry amber wine with a long and pleasant finish.
The village of Obcha boasts a unique micro-climate for growing the grapes that are used to make Baia's wines. Obcha is located east of the Sairme mountains, which receives a slightly higher angle of the sun's rays with greater solar intensity. At 324 meters above sea level, the land offers an ideal location for growing premium wine grapes. The perfect balance of geography, micro-climate and well-drained soil come together to create the perfect environment for Baia's exquisitely handcrafted wines. The heavy cold air that collects between the high peaks during the night drains off the heights, much like water, joining cold moist air, creating a double cooling effect. The cool nighttime temperatures are critical in developing high-quality grapes. The alluvial soil, with clay, gravel, sand and limestone have other significant vintages, while adding various mineral elements to the soils, which transfer to the gorgeous grapes.
