Natalie's Score: 87/100

Produced from the white Rkatsiteli and red Saperavi red wine grape, this red blend from Georgia's Kakheti Valley is vibrant with red berry, mocha and savoury herb flavours on the palate. A fresh and juicy great value red blend that pairs equally as well with dark chocolate as it would with spicy Korean ribs.

Food pairings: turkey and cranberry sauce, pork with a fruit reduction, fresh fruit tarts.

Reviews and Ratings

Craig Haynes - WSET3 FWS SWS IWS rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This red blend mingles saperavii, an indigenous Georgian red varietal, with the white grape rkatsiteli. Dark berries, spice notes and soft tannins ruled its medium bodied palate and continued through its finish.

Reviewed on April 15, 2020
Tbilvino 2018 is a great value under $16 Georgia red blend of the Saperavi red wine grape and the Rkatsiteli white wine grape sourced from the Alazani Valley in the Kakheti. Archaeological evidence suggests that wine grapes have been cultivated in Georgia for at least 8,000 years. This wine is softy sweet with fresh red berry flavours and a vibrant acidity on the palate. Pair with a Mexican chocolate chicken mole. - Community Wine Reviews
