Saperavi is the most popular Georgian variety in making this medium-sweet red from the Alazani Valley. Fragrant with pink florals, fresh ripe red cherry and soft orange citrus aromas on the nose. Ripe with dark cherry, blueberry fruit and dried herb flavours on the palate with a lively citrus finish. Pair with roast duck.
