Reviews and Ratings

MEDIUM-SWEET RED / From the Alazani Valley in Georgia, Teliani Valley's Kakheti 2016 is a medium-sweet red wine produced from the Saperavi wine grape. Sweet ripe red berries, blueberry, cake spice flavours with a flinty finish on the palate. Pair with roast turkey and cranberry sauce or smoked duck breast with plum sauce. MINE: From the Alazani Valley in Georgia, Teliani Valley's Kakheti 2016 is a medium-sweet red wine produced from the Saperavi wine grape. On the nose, this wine is floral with ripe cherries and citrus notes. On the palate, sweet ripe red berries, blueberry, cake spice flavours with a flinty finish. Pair with roast turkey and cranberry sauce or smoked duck breast with plum sauce. OTHER: Saperavi is the most important and popular Georgian variety and is the basis for this moderately sweet wine. Expect plenty of dark cherry and blueberry fruit enlivened by floral notes, dried herbs and orange zest. The medium-sweet palate makes this a splendid after-dinner sipper, but it will also work with duck in a plum sauce, or with semi-sweet pastries (Vintages Panel, updated). - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
