technical notes

Vineyard & Grapes: 100% of Château Mukhrani vineyards. Manually cared for during pruning and canopy management. Crop size is also controlled by pruning and if needed by so called “Green Harvest”. The vineyard is adjacent to the winery and manually picked within 7 to 12 minutes before being crushed.

Yield: average 8 T/ha, equivalent to 55-60 Hl/ha

Method of harvest: Selective hand picking to reach the highest quality of fruit

Vinification: Grapes are delivered into vibrating reception bins with extremely gentle travel machines to the crusher. De-stemming, fermentation using cultured yeast species and/or wild fermentation all under strict temperature control at about 22-24°C. Extraction using pump-over, delestage and punching (for small batches). Oxygenation of the ferments. Pressing on membrane and/or basket presses. 30 to 40% pressings join back to the free run. MLF done only after 7 to 8 months from finishing alcoholic fermentation for the purpose to polymerize tannins and balance the body. Individual wines are blended to the final style and 20% of the blend goes into French, American and Caucasian oak barrels. Once mature enough, wine from the barrels joins its other part and only then is prepared for bottling. Filtration is as course as possible according to the wine and the vintage specifics to retain the unique varietal characteristics. Bottling is done under the highest standards protecting the wine from all possibilities for quality issues.


Colour of opulent ruby bearing some blue hues. Bouquet of sweet cherry with some spice and oak overtones. Palate is tasteful and exuberant carrying blackberry and cherry. Velvety tannins and soft oak balanced with excellent expressed vinosity. With age it may develop diamond-crystalline deposits, further showing its noble origin and revered handling.

Saperavi is Georgia’s endemic variety and has all the noble characteristics making it one of the world’s most outstanding red wines. It is blended with Cabernet Sauvignon. The blend of the two magnificent varietals makes a standard for all premium red wines.

Red meat and game fried, grilled and stewed with spices. Excellent with mature cheeses of different styles.
