Lino Ramble Simon Says Saperavi 2022

$ 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.

This is both stern and well fruited. It can easily be consumed now, if you enjoy a bit of tannin, but you’d imagine that it’s best days are well ahead of it. It tastes of rust and black cherries, dried herbs and seaweed, leather and and just a little malt. It’s satisfying, for certain, and more.” 92 points, Campbell Mattinson, Winefront
