Kolkhida Saperavi Georgian Wine Red Dry 2014
Full-bodied, with dark, rich color; aroma-filled dry wine from Kakheti region in the east of Georgia. It’s very nice on the palate and pleasant to drink. Kolkhida is the queen of Saperavi!
Saperavi is a very old Georgian grape and the most widely planted grape in Georgia today. It’s one of the darkest grapes, and almost the only one having red pulp.
Did you know that in Georgia they use something called qvevri which is a large clay jar where they ferment their wine, but they keep it underground?
P.S. One of my ultimate, “secret” research tools for wine is The World Atlas of Wine, 7th Edition, which every wine enthusiast should have. It has got maps, basic information on the main wine regions, wineries, grape variaties, etc. Why don’t you order it as a gift for yourself? 🙂
Have you tried Georgian wine? What’s your experience with it? What is your favorite? 🙂
