Saperavi, Orgo, Georgia 2017
Georgian wine is back on the map in a big way and this wine is one of the best examples of what Georgia has to offer. It’s produced using old vine (80 year old) Saperavi grapes to make a full-bodied yet elegant red, aged in buried clay containers, Quervi, in which it is buried to ferment and age. Startlingly inky black in colour, full-bodied with luscious strawberry fruit, it has a wonderful savoury elegance and fine tannins. Drink this with a rich, hearty stew.
