Ridgemill Estate The Czar Saperavi 2016



Dark and brooding in the glass, this is a big wine with a whole lot of lovin'. Superb Saperavi.



There's lots of nestle in factor - I could get comfy with it oh too easily. If you like them big and generous, make a beeline.

Blue fruits, dark plums plus some oak char gets you in the mood. Wade around a little further for aniseed and touches of what I could best describe as Five Spice. Nips of dark chocolate swoop late and hold on longer than Wilson Phillips. Smooth to finish, it's such a moreish wine.

Drink in the short term to embrace the fruit but time will certainly be its friend beyond a decade.

94/100
