My first release of this unique ancient variety that originates in Georgia. The name literally translates to ink or dye in the Georgian dialect in reference to the intense colour, it is one of only 3 red varieties that also has red coloured flesh. To me Saperavi is a bit like potpourri - aromatic rose petals and dried herbs on the nose combined with an intense fleshy palate.
