Do you enjoy a glass of Merlot or Shiraz? Saperavi, somewhere in between.... Smooth Award-winning dry red, made from Saperavi grapes harvested in Gurjaani and Kvareli districts of Kakheti region, Georgia. Named literally ‘paint dye’ due to its inky purple colour, this is Georgia’s main red grape variety. It is one of the few varieties in the world, which have red anthocyanin (colour pigment) in the pulp as well as the skin. Distinguished by its naturally dark cherry colour, with the aromas of plums, blackberry and prunes, it is prone to withstand very cold climate giving its natural acidity. The palate is rich, spicy with hints of fresh grapes, cherry and vanilla flavours. Great with grilled meat dishes.
