Our Notes: The Shavnabada wines are made according to ancient Georgian traditions. The 2004 Mtsvane is sourced from the village of Gurjaani in Kakheti. It was hand harvested and foot trodden in an old wooden Satsnakheli (manual winepress). The maceration in Qvevri lasted 5 months then the wine matured in Qvevri for 11 years before bottling. A small amount of SO2 was burned in the empty Qvevri, no other additions were made. The bottleneck is covered with beeswax from the bees the monastery fams.
