Teinturier – 2019
The word “teinturier” comes from the French” to dye or stain”. That is exactly what grape varietal “Saperavi” means in Georgian.
This wine is a celebration of 8000 years old continued wine-making Georgian traditions. Made from the teinturier grape Saperavi, it is a blend of 80% Qvevri wine with 6 months of skin contact and 20% of the wine aged in French and American oak.
Deep impenetrable purple in color with notes of ripe dark fruit, minerals, and a touch of vanilla. Strong, but smooth tannins and a very long finish. Enjoy with barbecue, steak, and cheese.
