About Wine
A strikingly elegant Saperavi 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. 2012 was Orgo's first vintage and boy was it a success. Approximately 3,000 bottles of the 2012 Saperavi were produce. It is a one of a kind juicy old vine Saperavi.

Tasting Notes
This version of Saperavi comes with a powerful aroma including sour cherry, plum and light spices. Full bodied yet lighter on the pallet than most Saperavi’s, this wine is dominated by sour cherry, black currant, with the hint of chocolate and cedar notes. Silky tannin followed by a smooth finish ends the experience of this elegant Saperavi.
