2021 Alejandro Australian Saperavi
Saperavi is a precious commodity here in Australia. Yet, Alex Russell and the Alejandro Label have established an art form of producing one of the most interesting and distinctive dry reds from this varietal originally from Georgia.
Vinho Saperavi (red)
Several winemakers and ampelographers have neglected Saperavi, a rare Georgian varietal. It is a rare, teinturier-type variety that is a blend of dark and red variations, giving it an excellent gorgeous tint of glittering blue.
Clear views of the grape reveal a deep blue hue reminiscent of the expensive blue silk coats worn by the rich and famous.
No wonder the grape means ‘dye’ in Georgian since it imitates the dye hue that has been in use for thousands of years. Occasionally, the dye is viewed as a high-end luxury item.
The Saperavi grape puts forth very balanced, excellent wines, with its flavours and aromas typical of Caucasian grape varietals.
Georgia has had an old history with winemaking since ancient times and today continues to make many wines in the Caucasus region.
