Ori Marani Mariam 2020 - White Wine (750mL)
(Ships within Ontario or available for pick-up at 211 Geary Ave location only)
Sourced from an organic, family vineyard with 30-year old vines planted on loamy clay soil at 700m altitude in Lamiskana/Igoeti, Kartli. The wine was spontaneously fermented via semi carbon maceration over 2 weeks and aged in qvevri and old French oak barrels. 12% abv. 700 bottles produced.
This semi-carbonically macerated white opens with an explosive nose of bright springtime earth & herb garden, & the world around you snaps from black-and-white into glaring saturated Technicolor. Mariam has a secret warmth, with deep apricot fruit and homemade lemon tart butteriness hiding at the back of the palate like a little secret. Soaring acidity and an utterly singular cassava cake starchiness round out the palate.
