2018 'Paint, Dye, Give Color' Saperavi

2018 'Paint, Dye, Give Color' Saperavi

from 28.00

This wine is the 1st ever release of Saperavi on the West Coast. Planted to the 3 available Saperavi clones in the USA (the 4th will bear fruit in the next few years) these vines are an important part of our exotic grapes vineyard. I’ve traveled to the Republic of Georgia multiple times and have made lasting friendships with the countries top winemakers. This wine is dedicated to them. Their wine culture continues to be an inspiration.
