Natalie's Score: 85/100

As long as you're prepared for the sweetness uncommonly associated with a red wine, you'll enjoy it. It's savoury and tasty and ripe red berry fruit. Great for meaty dishes with a touch of sweetness to them or a glaze. This Georgian late-harvest wine is made from the country's indigenous Saperavi grape, whose name means "paint dye" due to its naturally dark colour. The "Kindzmarauli" designation means this wine is of high quality and is a naturally semi-sweet.

Food pairings: sweet and warm curry dishes, spicy dark chocolate, chocolate covered ginger.

Reviews and Ratings

Kakheti s Kindzmarauli is savoury and medium sweet, perfect for blue cheeses and chocolate tortes. The "Kindzmarauli" designation means this wine is of high quality and is a naturally semi-sweet. This late-harvest wine is made from the Georgia's indigenous Saperavi grape. "Saperavi" meaning "paint dye" and this is because this grape is deep and dark red (almost black) in colour. - 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.
