Chinuri (chee-new-ree) is an endemic variety from Kartli region of Georgia. The name comes from a particular golden color, highlighted on the label. Chinuri is a thin skin variety with very clear transparent pulp and juice. Goga Tevzadze, the winemaker at Tevza, is on a mission to explore, preserve and promote indigenous varieties from Kartli. This particular year he kept the wines with the skins for 4-6 six weeks the result is still only a mild yellow to amber wine. This hazy, unfiltered and low SO2 is an amazing introduction to skin contact wines. A little crazy and certainly alive!
Goga Tevzadze established his traditional micro-winery at his home in Mtskheta in 2018. A founder of the small craft distillery “Riravo," which produces high-quality fruit brandies, he eventually left to pursue his love of winemaking. Tevza is focused on producing lively, natural, and highly expressive wines from the distinctive varietals of Kartli, sharing the region's native wine traditions with the world. Tevzadze's wines, made from grapes harvested from 10-12-year-old vineyards, are super low-intervention and made with love. They offer an artisanal take on the textures and aromatics of traditional wines from Kartli. They are especially juicy and soft compared to other Georgian wine regions, and sport highly expressive and unusual bouquets: honeysuckle, melon, olive, and cut grass.
