Description


Die Nase macht neugierig, Aromen von wildem Wacholder und Wiesenblumen steigen empor, während der warme Körper durch seine ausgewogen-feine Tanninstruktur besticht. Weniger verspielt als die klassischen Mtsvanes aus Kachetien, ist dieser Goruli Mtsvane im Geschmack angenehm ausbalanciert, frische Nuancen von reifer Birne und Dattel lassen sich erschmecken. Im Abgang schließlich spürst du die Finesse, Stabilität und Handwerkskunst, die in diesen Wein geflossen ist, denn er ist über zwei Jahre im Qvevri gereift. Als aktuell ältester Amber-Wein in unserem Portfolio hat dieser 2018er Jahrgang ein für Naturweine enormes Aging-Potential.

Merab Mirtskhulava ("Alapiani")


Behind Alapiani Winery are the two distinctive characters Merab Mirtskhulava and Avto Gigineishvili. The two know each other from the communist military era and can therefore trust each other truly blindly. Merab is the master on the vine and in the Marani, Avto takes care of all financial matters and the awareness of the brand Alapiani.

They have been producing natural wines in two climatically different regions of Georgia for several years now: in the Kakhetian dry-hot East in Vazisubani and in the interior Kartli near Okami. There, grape varieties such as Chinuri and Shavkapito grow about 550 m above sea level, where the soil is predominantly alluvial carbonated. Alapiani produces exclusively Qvevri wines according to old Georgian winemaking methods without any additives, they are fermented spontaneously and not filtered. Their wines combine ancient history, passion and skill and take the tradition of Georgian viticulture to new heights in a noble yet modest way. Georgian through and through, delicious and exciting, yet refined and precise.

At the end of 2019, they opened their own small bar in the heart of the old city of Tbilisi, where you can enjoy their natural wines and those of other exquisite natural winemakers.
