Red Georgian Wine: Uniquely Expressive and Aromatic
Georgian red wines are known for their special energy and rich tartness, owing to the original Kakhetian technology that preserves small twigs and berry bones during pressing and fermentation. The legendary Saperavi, Kindzmarauli, and Khvanchkara are some of the most expressive and aromatic red wines produced in Georgia.
Their bouquet combines light notes of violets, ripe fruit, and exquisite tones of silky caramel with well-roasted almonds and hints of pomegranate seeds. Rich red wines are versatile and complement various meat dishes, game, soft-flavored cheeses, and desserts.
Georgian red wine is not just an alcoholic beverage; it is an element of Georgian tradition and culture. Alazani Valley, Saperavi, Kindzmarauli, and Khvanchkara are well-known all over the world. The country produces incredibly delicious vintage wines that are aged in barrels for 5-10 years. The longer the wine is in such conditions, the more exquisite its taste and aroma becomes.
Georgian red wines typically have an alcoholic strength of 12-14%.
Georgian red wines are versatile and complement a variety of dishes, including:
