Sad Meli - Rachuli Saperavi 2018 - Racha, Georgia


100% Saperavi 

If you love bold, tannic red wines then Georgian Saperavi is a must-try. This tiny estate in the hilly Racha region of northern Georgia is run by a father and son team. It is a rare example of a Georgia wine made from organically grown grapes and made in a minimal intervention style. 

The grapes are harvested in late October before being fermented and aged in traditional clay amphora called "Qvevri" for six months. It is then bottled without filtration and with only a small addition of sulphites.

Saperavi is a rare "Teinturier" grape, which means it has red-coloured pulp. This results in a wine with an inky-black colour. 

Tasting notes: Blackberry, black plum, dried cranberry. Powerful and tannic. Decant for +2hrs if possible. 

Food pairing: Perfect for rich cured meats like wild boar saucisson, powerful blue cheese, and ragu.
