Sirromet Wines Granit Saperavi 2020, Granite Belt, AUD $30

Saperavi is an ancient variety, native to Georgia and it has found a very compatible home in the high-altitude Granite Belt region in Queensland, where a handful of producers are making outstanding wine from this exotic variety.

A really delightful, vivid purple in the glass. Lifted aromatics of blue fruits, white pepper, dried flowers and cedar. The flavours are vibrant, satsuma plums, dark cherry, licorice, coffee grounds and spice. A delicious, balanced and youthful wine, there is fabulous balance between fruit, tannin and acid.
