A wine from the country of Georgia. This seems unlikely at first thought, and it doesnt appear in my wine atlas which i thought was fully comprehensive!
Archaeology has uncovered that we have been producing wine in Georgia for thousands of years!
Saperavi is a native Georgian grape variety which produces fabulous wines full of deep colour, tannin and structure which will obviously mellow elegantly with Age.
Dark blackish red in colour. Dark berry fruit nose with hint of sweetness. Intense, refreshing fruit and a very full bodied palate with great texture, coffee hints and a long finish.
