Hans Herzog Saperavi 2018
Tasting Notes: The gorgeous rich ruby colour is unsurpassed, enveloped in aromas of Mediterranean herbs and spices. The perfectly balanced ripe tannins and juicy acidity is dominated by sweet fresh fruit. Think succulent blackberries. Multi-layered and well structured, elegant and silky this makes a very seductive (and addictive) wine with a long lingering finish. A wine to cherish!
Winemaking Notes: “After a long extended skin contact over 21 days I let the must progress to a natural (wild yeast) fermentation. Then gently pressed and transferred into a new French Barriques (from exclusive Swiss oak) where it progressed to a natural malolactic fermentation. I left this powerhouse time to mature under perfect condition in the barrel hall for a long 30 months. No fining. No filtration. A natural wine built to last forever…” – Hans Herzog
