Pheasant’s Tears Buera-grdzelmtevana Orange Wine, 2018, Georgia
At Low Intervention
John Wurdeman is an American who left his life behind to settle in Georgia and produce wines with a nod to the ancient winemaking traditions of the country. This is a blend of Buera and Grdzelmtevana aged in submerged Georgian qvevris for six months. A deep amber, this pairs firm, chewy tannins with a deep fruit and exotic spice. An intellectual wine indeed.
