Do you feel bored by the wines that you have been drinking? Have you thought of trying some grape varieties that you have never tasted before? This is the article for you!
This is a gem from Georgia! Saperavi is a native Georgian variety that can be made into different styles of wine! The first style that you would try, perhaps, would be a typical dry Saperavi red wine. As a simple dry red, Saperavi has wonderful fruitness like cherries, raspberries, and a little blackcurrants. It has structured tannins but not overwhelming. When it is matured in oak, it develops more complex aromas of dark chocolate, and roasted spices. And if you wish to taste something even more interesting, Saperavi Qvevri is the answer for you. Being fermented in Qvevri gives it complex aromas of intense berries, ripe cherries, and hints of vanilla. Last but not least, Saperavi can be made into semi-sweet red wine, an amazing type of red wine from Georgia. If you have not tried a nicely chilled semi-sweet red wine, you should!
是來自格魯吉亞的滄海遺珠！這個品種可塑性非常高，亦可用作製造不同風格的紅酒。如果是最簡單的日常紅酒，這款葡萄酒的味道有豐富的果香，例如櫻桃、紅桑子、黑加侖子等，單寧實在而又不會喧賓奪主；當在木桶陳釀是，它會醞釀出複雜的黑朱古力、烤香料等味道；至於最具格魯吉亞特色的Qvevri陶罐釀法，則會帶出更成熟和濃郁的櫻桃味、及輕輕的雲尼拿味道。除此之外，Saperavi還可以釀製格魯吉亞盛產的半甜紅酒！如果你試過一瓶冰凍的半甜紅酒，一定要試!https://www.pinewoodwine.com/products/akido-saperavi-dry-red-2020 https://www.pinewoodwine.com/products/chateau-buera-saperavi-reserved-2018 https://www.pinewoodwine.com/products/rtvelisi-saperavi-qvevri-qvevri-dry-red-2021 https://www.pinewoodwine.com/products/mtevino-kindzmarauli-medium-sweet-red-2020
When it comes to Spanish varieties, perhaps you would think about Tempranillo. However, in the Southern part of Spain, Yecla has an amazing variety called Monastrell. A typical nice glass of Monastrell has aromas of plums, blueberries, spices, pepper, and vanilla from oak ageing. Its tannins are velvety and elegant.
Italy has its own collection of varieties. Raboso is one of the interesting ones. It has a very harmonic taste of raspberry and ripe cherries with smooth tannins and good acidity.
