About Wine
The 2013 Orgo Saperavi presents the sheer power of Saperavi in its most elegant form. This wine is made from 80 year old vines. The wine is fermented and aged in Qvevri (Large clay jars). Temuri Dakishvili sources the grapes from Kurdgelauri and Tsinandali villages in the Telavi district, on the right bank of the Alazani River. 2013 was Orgo's second vintage and it's style is a nice contrast from the 2012. Approximately 3,000 bottles of the 2013 Saperavi were produce. It is a one of a kind powerful old vine Saperavi.

Tasting Notes
Tasting notes from Wine & Spirits Magazine:
"Supple and lush, this is a supersaturated wash of purple fruit, balanced by a full complement of rooty and herbal spice. It’s an easy entryway into Georgian reds, to drink the same way one might a southern Rhône red: with sausages or lamb.#
