Chinuri 2021 is a very special orange wine from one of the scenes leading lights in skin contact winemaking. Made from 100% Chinuri grapes that spend 9 months underground in Qveri fermenting with native yeasts. The wine itself is a passion fruit cooler with a lightly floral nose and zingy, refreshing lime finish.
Founded in 2007 a joint project between John Wurdeman and Gela Patalishvili Pheasant’s Tear’s was set up to revive the ancient traditions of Georgian winemaking. The vineyard plantings flow down the slopes of the eastern Georgian Kiziqi province overlooking the Alazani Valley and snow-capped Caucasus Mountains. The Pheasant’s Tears' principal site is located near the village of Tibaani in the shadow of the 6th-century Monastery of St. Stephen. Pheasant’s Tears owns several vineyards spread over several villages - there are 15 ha currently under vine, plus various others in the process of being planted. In Tibaani, John and Gela are dedicating vineyards to rare white varietals.
