Mukuzani 2014 – Telavi Wine Cellar
Price: 12.99 GBP (Equivalent per bottle) ABV: 13.5%
Georgia’s most famous and well-regarded appellation of origin. Wines from Mukuzani typically undergo longer ageing in oak barrels to add depth and complexity and it is here that Saperavi reaches its pinnacle. This Telavi Mukuzani is no exception and shows aromas of black cherry, dark chocolate with a sprinkling of vanilla and spice. There’s generous ripe mouth-filling fruit on the palate, with notes of damson and black treacle, followed by robust tannins.
A good choice with pan fried steak, venison or aubergine dishes.
