    Variety: Saperavi 100%

    Of all Georgia’s grape varieties, saperavi is the one that is most exciting wine writers in the west. Saperavi is Georgia’s national grape, and translates as “inky” – referring to the depth of colour usually found in a saperavi wine. Saperavi is high in both tannins and acidity, making it an excellent wine for cellar aging.

    Place of production: Saperavi grapes are sourced from the main micro-zones of Mukuzani, Akhasheni, Khashmi, Kindzmarauli, Napareuli, Kvareli and Kondoli in the Kakheti region of Georgia.

    Fermentation: After four days on the skins, the wine is 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: Saperavi wine boasts a delicious aroma typical to this variety with the hints of fresh grapes, cherry and vanilla. The traditional blackberry and mulberry flavours of the Saperavi wine are perfectly combined with the notes of oak.

    Food pairing: Long-lingering finish and sweet mulberry characters go well with kebab, steak and pork ribs.
