Saperavi Rosé 2013 – Tbilvino
Price: 9.99 GBP (Equivalent per bottle) ABV: 13%
This medium-bodied rose is made from 100% handpicked Saperavi grapes from the region of Kakheti. While most rosé and red wines obtain their colour from the skins of red grapes, Saperavi grapes are unusual in that their juice is already coloured a pinky red. For this saperavi rosé, the skins are left in contact with the juice for only 8-10 hours.
Light pink in colour, with varietal saperavi aromas of blackcurrant, and ripe peach and raspberry. Lots of red fruit on the palate and a spicy, long and well balanced finish.
Would go well with fish and cold meats, also with summer picnics and barbeques.
