TASTING NOTES AND FOOD PAIRING:

This wine is wonderfully round and semi-dry on the palate. Well chilled, it is best enjoyed by the glass as an aperitif or just for pleasure. Less chilled, it goes down well as a digestif or as an accompaniment to desserts, liver pies or certain cheeses.

 

WINEMAKING:
With this wine we are placing a genuine novelty on the market. Saperavi as a teinturier grape variety produces a darker rose even with relatively short skin contact times. After skin maceration of 1 day the juice is fermented in stainless steel tanks.
