Andria Gvino Saperavi Khashmi 2019
Red wine. Georgia. Biodynamic. 100% Saperavi. This Saperavi, the best known of Georgia’s red grapes, is from 45 year old ungrafted vines, hand harvested and destemmed, the fermentation is spontaneous with indigenous yeasts. The wine is bottled un-fined and unfiltered and at no point in the wine making are sulfites added. This is a rich, full-bodied red with structure and grippy tannins, with air the wine shows dark red and black fruit (plums, cherries, boysenberries), spice, and a dense structured earthiness. Give this wine some air and then pair it with rich meat dishes—braises with tomatoes in particular.
