2017 PATRITTI Saperavi 75cl (Barossa Valley, Australia)
Style - Bold
Grapes - Saperavi
Tasting - Aromas are intense with blackcurrant, plum and raspberry notes leaping from the glass, but as always there is an earthy and savoury element that is so characteristic of Saperavi. In the mouth the wine is massive, it’s full-on in every way; body, tannins and red berry flavour are all there working together in harmony and with a softness.
FYI: Giovanni Patritti boarded a ship in Genoa in 1925, thinking was on his way to meet his sister in America, only to land at Port Adelaide in April 1926.
