Description

Zurab Topuridze Saperavi 2019

Zurab Topuridze Saperavi is an easy drinking natural wine with a very approachable style. The nose opens with fresh and soft red forest fruits. The medium-bodied palate has silky tannins and a great acidity that cuts through its rich core. Juicy raspberry and blackberry flavours with a little spice. Very good Georgian re wine.

100% Saperavi. Saperavi is one of the most well-known native red grapes of Georgia. The fruit for this wine comes from Zurab Topuridze's natural and organic 4 hectare vineyard. The vineyard is planted on the terraced slopes of River Supsa Valley, Georgia. Georgia is one of the original wine countries and their ancient grapes and natural wine making traditions with the use of amphora create very interesting and tasty wines.

This natural wine is made in Zurab Topuridze's 22 underground qvevris using a traditional Georgian "Kakhetian" method, which was recognised in 2013 by UNESCO as humanity heritage. Fermentation, maceration and wine ageing occurs in clay amphoras (Qvevri).
