Natural winemaking methods are used in both the cellars and the vineyards. His 0.7ha of vines are between 28-100 years old. The grapes are fermented and aged in quevri, without their skins or pomace, although Ramaz plays this by ear each year. This Tsolikouri is from grapes sourced from a family member’s limestone-rich vineyard in Lechkumi, which are directly pressed and fermented for 18-day with indigenous yeasts in qvevri. The wine spends around 5-6 months in this vessel, before being racked into clean qvevri until it needs to be bottled.

Really fresh with good citrus flavours and bright acidity. The nose is flinty and mineral with just a touch of lemon skins and wild herbs. The palate shows razor-sharp precision, bone-dry and super focused, lemon and lime fruit, very similar experience to a white Jura from top producer.
