2020 Reserve Saperavi

2020 Reserve Saperavi


From an organically farmed vineyard. This is a full-throttle red, no doubt. A huge fog of aroma showcasing booze-soaked berries, ripe plum, brined black olive, mocha coffee and sweet spice aromas. The palate is a wall of thunderous, concentrated blackberry fruitiness shaped within a firm web of tannins, all of it dusted with ground clove and white pepper. It hits the ‘bold red wine’ target well in its balance and poise, despite the obvious heft. A palate-saturating red wine done very well.”

Saperavi originates from Georgia where wine has been made since 6000BC. One sip of this nectar of the ancient gods may give you ancestral flash backs of winemakers dancing under a full moon clothed in animal skins praying for fermentation to begin.

Your taste buds will exclaim “Nazdarovya“ as it experiences amazing complexities of spices and violets, and the powerful flavours of ripe purple plums, balsamic strawberries and dark cherries with hints of creamy mushroom risotto. The soft tannins will hug the insides of your cheeks like Natasha and Pierre’s embrace on their wedding night in Tolstoy’s War and Peace.

Serving suggestion: Mtsvadi & Tkemali (Kebab with Sour Plum Sauce) watching Eurovision while clothed in animal skins (horned helmet optional)
