La Petite Mort Qvevri Saperavi 2019

 


Big love for this beauty. As winemaker Glen Robert says, "This is a quirky wine."

I could listen to Glen talk all day - his passion for his work is clear. His love of the science behind wine and winemaking always leaves me armed with new insights. When chatting about Saperavi, he tells me that is has the highest amount of resveratrol than any red grape variety. Could this be a result of the variety's coloured pulp?

Baked blueberry pie, mandarin peel and dried purple flowers take your senses on a glorious aromatic journey early. The third release of this wine and sourced from a vineyard on the Victorian/South Australian border, the sexy mouthfeel is adorable. It builds fabulous momentum through the mouth. Pretty plums cruise about leaving a luscious finish to consider. One glass just won't be enough.

Drink to five years.
