GWS is one of Georgia’s most important and internationally recognized wineries, based in the Kakheti region in the east of the country, where the Saperavi grape is at its best. Owning over 400 ha of vines, it is under the tightly controlled and exceptionally professional stewardship of Philippe Lespy, formerly Head Viticulturist at Château Mouton-Rothschild in Bordeaux for over eight years. GWS produces wonderfully expressive wines that represent some of the finest value in Georgian winemaking.
A complex and aromatic bouquet, notes of black cherry and cassis and an underlay of vanilla. Powerful and complex, there is a delicious Malbec like black fruit and olive fruit seam, carried by a super ripe tannin structure.
Perfect as a pairing for red meats and game dishes.
Macerated at 8-10°C for up to 5 days, fermented at 26-30°C using cultural yeasts, followed by Malolactic fermentation and ageing in barrel for more than 20 months.
