Shumi Kindzmarauli PDO

Kindzmarauli PDO is located in the Inner Kakhetian municipality of Kvareli, encompassing the southern slopes of the Greater Caucasus mountains. The vineyards are at altitudes between 250 – 550 meters above sea level, spanning the banks of the Alazani river. The PDO wines are exclusively made from Saperavi. The thing which makes this appellation special is the soil. It’s comprised of a loose black shale washed down the Duruji river. It has a high propensity to retain heat which in turn increases the temperature of the soil, with then increases the sweetness of the grapes – and the quality of the wine. The PDO is famous for its semi-sweet Kindzmarauli wine, which has been produced since 1942. This late-picked Saperavi from Kindzmarauli micro-zone offers an exceptional bouquet of naturally semi-sweet notes with the typical Saperavi taste of ripe fruits. It has a silky smooth structure. www.tasteofgeorgia.co.uk
