symphonia ANALOG qvevri saperavi


Analog is a second label started early 2017. These are wines made with a view showcasing and respecting ancient winemaking traditions, in a modern context.

This was made in a lighter style as we wanted to enunciate the character that the qvevri itself lends to the wine. Hand-picked in the early morning sunlight to ensure freshness and acidity. The grapes were not fully through veraison when picked, yet yielded an amazing amount of colour, possibly due to low cropping levels and the rich soils that they grow in. Pigeaged and then left for around four hours on skins before being pressed off directly into qvevri, which was sealed with wood and clay until bottling. Drawn from the qvevri for hand bottling in December 2017 with no sulphur added.

This pours a light garnet red. The nose is vibrantly aromatic, with an explosive perfume of blood plum, red cherry, hibiscus flowers, clove and leather. The palate is dominated by a purity of fruit sweetness upfront-red cherry, cassis, & blackcurrant are the main ones-with fine, plum-like tannins gently rounding out the palate. A streak of acid to finish.
