Sada Wine Imports, a U.S. importer of Georgian wines, has released 3 qvevri wines under its family’s Sun Wine label, and one is an amber-colored Kisi Qvevri.“Our family is very proud to introduce wines made in ancient Georgian traditional Qvevri method with minimal intervention,” said Zurab Cherashvili, operations manager of Sada Wine Imports. “The 2019 Kisi Qvevri, in particular, is a welcome alternative white wine, with its subtle tannin structure for added complexity.”Georgia, the country that intersects Europe and Asia and was once a Soviet republic, is home to Caucasus Mountain villages, Black Sea beaches and an ancient wine-growing region producing over 500 unique grapes to make exotic and affordable wines. The country is one of the oldest winemaking regions in the world, a fact that came to light five years ago, when archeologists discovered qvevri (pronounced “kway-vree”), traditional clay vessels used in winemaking. Inside the qvevri were grape seeds dating to 6000 BCE. UNESCO was so amazed by the longevity of these ancient clay jars that they included qvevri on its Intangible Cultural Heritage list in 2013.The following three wines were made in qvevri, the large egg-shaped, beeswax-lined, porous terracotta vessels filled with grapes – skins in-tact, covered and buried underground for six months. Due to the vessel’s bulbous shape and pointed bottom, it acts as a natural filtration system, enhancing the natural essence of Georgia wines.2019 Sun Wine Kisi Qvevri Amber ($22)Kisi (key-see) grapes are a rare grape varietal that grow on old vines on the mountains of Kakheti. This is an amber colored, or “orange” wine with aromatic notes of dried orange peel and stone fruit leads to a palate of deep citrus with hints of black tea. It is a full-bodied wine with a tight tannin structure, best served with hard cheeses, pork, or grilled chicken.2018 Sun Wine Rkatsiteli Qvevri Dry Amber ($20)Made with 100% Rkatsiteli grapes, (Rkatsiteli literally translates to “red stem”) this sumptuous wine is “orange” and offers a ripe citrus bouquet and sweeping, complex palate of dried orange peel, sweet tea, stone fruits, and a lingering finish of caramel. Serve this wine with spiced meats, rice, lentils, or smoked eggplant.2019 Sun Wine Saperavi ($23)Saperavi, (Georgian translation “to give color”) is an acidic, teinturier-type grape whose red flesh is attributed to anthocyanin pigments stored within the pulp of the grape berry itself. From the vineyards of Kvareli, this Saperavi wine presents an intense, dark pomegranate color leading to an earthy, ripened cherry bouquet. On the palate, a nice tannin structure and medium-bodied mouthfeel of pomegranate finishes with a touch of spice.Instead of a dozen roses, why not offer a dozen bottles of Qvevri Kisi for your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day? All three qvevri wines are available for purchase online at www.sada-wine.com.With the release of these qvevri wines, Sada Wine Imports invites you to join its wine club, giving oenophiles and novices alike access to an array of benefits, including discounts, first notifications of limited releases, and incentive savings on shipments and anniversary gifts.

Unfazed by earthquake, Ko wins in New Zealand

first_imgCHRISTCHURCH, New Zealand – Unfazed by an earthquake just before she teed off, top-ranked Lydia Ko won the New Zealand Women’s Open for the third time in four years Sunday. The magnitude 5.7 quake rattled the area about 10 minutes before Ko began play. She started the round on time and play wasn’t interrupted by the quake. ”It was interesting, I’ve never been on a golf course where there is an earthquake,” Ko said. ”It was lucky I wasn’t out there playing because I wouldn’t want to be in the middle of my swing and the ball moves somewhere else.” Ko closed with a 2-under 70 for a two-stroke victory. The 18-year-old South Korean-born New Zealander finished at 10-under 206 at Clearwater Golf Club. She also won the national championship in 2013 and 2015. England’s Felicity Johnson, South Korean amateur Hye Jin Choi and Denmark’s Nanna Koerstz Madsen tied for second. Johnson shot 67, Choi 69, and Madsen 70. The event was sanctioned by the Ladies European Tour and Australian Ladies PGA. The earthquake came a week before the fifth anniversary of a 6.3 magnitude quake that killed 185 people in Christchurch and area. Ko birdied her second hole but gave it back with the only bogey of her round at the par-5 fifth, three-putting from 10 feet. She briefly dropped behind Amelia Lewis, but the American bogeyed the 16th, leaving Ko among five players tied at 8 under. Lewis finished with a 69 to tie for sixth at 6 under. Ko birdied Nos. 10 and 11 to take a two-shot lead and she held that advantage to become the first player to successfully defend the title. ”I could feel some tears coming after the 18th hole,” Ko said. ”It’s been a long week, a lot of emotion and a lot of people to share this amazing victory with. Especially given how much New Zealand golf has been a support to me and my career.”last_img read more

The band jammed through a “Kids” sandwich with a “Down Boy” slid in the middle before the second half of”Kids” segued into another Pink Floyd tune with “Time”, which itself flowed right back into “Breathe” reprise. The music continued into an always-anticipated “Farmer Ben”, with its jam being a real treat thanks to some subtle Grateful Dead teases thrown into the mix.
