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 winemaking Georgian traditions. Made from the teinturier grape Saperavi, it is a blend of 80% Qvevri wine with 6 month 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 touch of vanilla. Strong, but smooth tannins and very long finish. Enjoy with barbecue, steak and cheese.
