Tbilvino’s Saperavi 2010 in Laithwaites Wines - exclusive UK Debut

21.05.2011 (Hvino News) “Medal-winning red wine brilliance from where it all began - wild and beautiful Georgia ”- says the article on Tbilvino’s Saperavi 2010 in the catalogue of Laithwaites Wines UK, the world’s leading direct-to-home company.

"Georgia's ancient wine relics include bejewelled golden goblets that testify to the importance of wine here as far back as 6000 BC. (And they're just the way to serve up this glorious Gold medal winner!) Saperavi has sumptuous spiced cherry fruit with a hint of creamy vanilla, thanks to skilful barrel ageing which wowed judges at Decanter and the International Wine & Spirit Competition alike. You'd be forgiven for mistaking it for good Saint Emilion, but rather than Merlot or Cabernet it's Saperavi. Little known beyond the former Soviet states, this ancient variety is said to be "at its distinctively plummy best for between four and thirty years" (Jancis Robinson MW)"
