Grape variety: 
Saperavi
Description: 

Variety: Saperavi 100%

Place of production: This red dry wine is produced from specially selected Saperavi grapes harvested in the controlled appellation Napareuli micro-zone of the Kakheti region on the left bank of the Alazani river. Vineyards are situated at 400-500 meters above the sea level.

Fermentation: After four days on the skins, the wine is then pressed off and finishes primary fermentation in tanks before undergoing secondary Malolactic fermentation at 25/27°C. Warm ferments help produce a fleshier character to the final wines.

Tasting profile: This wine has an aroma traditional to this variety – a rich taste with balanced tannins is perfectly combined with notes of oak and is distinguished with an intensive red colour. Wines from Napareuli are often distinguished by “bloodier” and “meatier” flavours, reminiscent of tempranillo.

Food pairing: Goes well with lamb BBQ and hot meat dishes.
