Ridgemill Estate The Czar Saperavi 2017
If you are yet to dip your toe into the delicious waters of Saperavi, this would be a smart place to start. A variety gaining some good traction in Australia, this is a beauty.
A captivating aromatic profile to say the least - there's so much going on. Think cola, licorice all sorts, rosella and cedar. Deliciously smooth and supple, game, choc raspberry brownie, cocoa and earth add layers of interest in the mouth. Fine baking spices are sprinkled atop the fruit. Tannins are firmish and you get a sense they are being held tight ready to slowly unfurl in years to come. There's plenty of stories and good times ahead of large glasses of this. Superb drinking!
Best drinking 2020 to a decade plus.
