Dr. Konstantin Frank - Saperavi 2017

Dr. Konstantin Frank Saperavi 2017

The Saperavi grape is an ancient grape variety native to Georgia. Saperavi is one of the few red grapes that has colored flesh with very dark skins, producing deeply colored wine. That is why its name means “paint, dye, give color” in Georgian. Saperavi is a wonderful wine for ageing due to its naturally high acidity levels.

Nose: Pronounced and fruity with bramble, blackberry, and red plum

Palate: Touches of sweet spice, cedar, and smoke. Full-bodied with polished tannins.

Finish: Juicy acidity lifts the flavors on the long finish and will allow this wine to age extremely well.
