Teliani Valley Kindzmarauli Semi Sweet Red
Bottle Size: 750 mL
100% Saperavi Grapes
Kindzmarauli (Kinz-mah-rah-oo-lee) is one of the most well-known Georgian wines given its popularity in the Soviet period. Many American wine-drinkers are put off by the word "sweet" but this authentic naturally semi-sweet wine has been making American converts for the last decade. Kindzmarauli is sweet but not too sweet because it is made from a tannic and complex grape varietal, Saperavi. The characteristics of the Saperavi grape lend balance to the sugar resulting in a well structured wine great for pairings.
This is a juicy wine with structure and finesse. Aromas of crushed rose petals, violets, plums and wild berries. The impression on the palate is one of firmly weighed fruit, a hint of sweetness, with a soft silky finish with a balance of tannin.
Naturally semi-sweet wine from the Kindzmarauli area in Georgia. Very juicy, heavy plum and berry fruit forward taste. Nice silky finish. Pairs well with spicy food.
