Lino Ramble Simon Says Saperavi 2021
$ 43.00 incl. GST
A Georgian variety, ‘Saperavi’ translates as ‘ink’, befitting its deep colour. An inherently highly tannic variety, the wine is wild fermented in seasoned French oak with seven days skin contact. Grown on Chalk Hill’s California Road vineyard.
“Lino Ramble produces the most boisterous of saperavi. It’s rich in fruit, life and energy. We jump straight into plum, heady violets, blueberry and raspberry jam flavours, with herb notes adding lift and more. It has good shape and dryness through the finish but the momentum is never endangered; it rushes straight on, seducing as it rolls. It’s tasty, warm-hearted and delicious; it’s pretty much irresistible.” 93 points, Campbell Mattinson, Winefront
