The wine has a brilliant amber color. It is pure, with dominant tertiary aromas. Fruity, with the aroma of fresh grapes and peaches. Citrus fruits and southern fruit (pineapple, passion fruit). Dry and fresh, full-bodied, intense and long-lasting, with a fruity aroma, light herbal notes, mineral, elegant. The production of wine in amphorae is extremely rare, since the production of amphorae in itself is a type of art. Each amphora is produced by hand only in the Caucasus area. There are only a handful of true old amphora masters. Outside Georgia, there are only about ten winemakers who own amphorae and make wines in them. The Tomac family is one of them. The grapes placed in the amphorae come from vineyards over 70 years of age. The wine is fermented in amphorae with a six-month long maceration. After that, it ages in large 2000-liter wooden barrels for about 18 months. The wine is not filtered.
