  • A warm and spicy red offering vibrant aromas of wild berries, tea and crème de cassis with lovely floral lavender hints, loads of flavour and spicy on the finish.A deeply coloured warm and spicy red, offering vibrant aromas of wild berries and red plum. On the palate, this is smooth, with soft tannins, characteristic balancing acidity, and an attractive hint of spice on the finish.

 

The fruit was carefully selected before vinification. Fermentation took place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks to retain the purity of the fruit and the varietal characteristics of the Saperavi grape. The wine went through malolactic conversion to soften the palate. It was made in an unoaked style.

Winery

The grapes are grown in the Kakheti region in eastern Georgia, where the climate is moderately humid, with hot summers and cool winters. The vineyard is situated at an altitude of 320 metres above sea level, where the vines are trained according to the Vertical Shoot Position (VSP) method and are double Guyot pruned. The soils are clay and loamy, which provide good water retention properties to sustain the vines during the hot summers. The vineyard is planted with covered grass between the vines to reduce weeds; the soil is mulched and treated with organic mineral fertilisers. The Saperavi (pronounced Sap-e-RAVEE) variety is an indigenous dark-skinned, pink-fleshed Georgian variety. Saperavi translates as a dye, apt for this teinturier grape, which produces richly coloured wines with marked acidity. The grapes were hand-harvested at optimal maturity.
