Was guided towards this by a very helpful staff member at Majestic Wine. I wanted a more unusual wine region and this met the criteria. I was intrigued by the ancient wine making technique using clay amphora buried in the ground, rather than oak barrels.
Known as an Orange wine, it certainly holds a beautiful honey colour when it sits in the glass, very similar to Mead.
Unable to pick out much on smell other than 'watery fruit'.
First sip was a shock- it was extremely gentle with no alcoholic hit. We had to check the bottle to ensure it wasn't a non-alcoholic wine. It is very smooth for 12.5%. There is a slight soft pear taste to the wine which was very refreshing. The tasting notes said Apricot but I couldn't pick up on it. — 5 months ago
A nice easy to drink full, dry red from Georgia. Canilla notes, chesnut and cherries, but controlled. — 3 years ago
Warm almost cognac nose. Lemons, tannins, touch of honey. Lovely sunset orange. Punchy tannic acidity up front. Highly structured body. Some madira notes. Woody in places. A very dynamic and unique wine. — 3 years ago

Wow this is different. Nose satsuma segments, stray apricot, rosemary. QUINCE JELLY. Then it's more of the same on the palate but with an almost instantly vanishing intensity. Explodes and then it's gone. Chalky and relatively harsh bitterness from the 6months or so that it'll have sat in it's amphora with the skins (stem maceration?). Enjoyable though! Keep it chilled, definitely. — 3 years ago
A nice sweet red wine. — a year ago
Шикарный цвет, фиолетово-чёрный. Аромат насыщенный, плотный, спелой вишни. Вкус глубокий, ощущается смородина, черноплодная рябина; в бочке не выдерживали, или выдерживали недолго, дуб не доминирует. Здесь только Саперави. Танины мощные и уместные. — 2 years ago
Very balanced, super tasty. My first Georgian wine. Not too fruity, just slightly dry. — 3 years ago
