2011 Pheasant's Tears Saperavi Republic of Georgia

SKU #1162701

"All of our wines at Pheasantís Tears are fermented and aged in qvevri, a unique Georgian vessel used to ferment and store wine. Qvevri were the first vessels ever to be used for wine fermentation, with archaeological finds dating back to 6000 BC. Qvevri are clay vessels lined with beeswax and completely buried under the ground where the temperature stays even thoughout the year, allowing the wines to ferment in the natural coolness of the earth. Pheasantís Tears qvevri vary in age but, some date back to the mid 19th C...This popular red is so dark in color it's called black in Georgian, and it varies greatly according to the terroir in which itís grown. Our estate Saperavi is a bold, earthy, dry red with flavors of black currant and toasted almond with an elegant, natural tannin structure. Enjoy Saperavi with roasted meats or rich, creamy sauces."
