The Stones and Blue Fruit of the 2007 Chelti, Saperavi


I seem to have drunk several bottles of wine from Georgia this summer.  This selection is a tasty and affordable bottle of wine which will work well for daily consumption.  It has a profile that should appeal to many.  While there is the structure for further aging I rather like the amount of fruit right now.  I recommend you give it a try!  This wine is available at MacArthur Beverages.

2007 Chelti Estate Vineyards, Chelti, Kakheti – $13
Imported by Potomac Selections.  This wine is 100% Saperavi sourced from 11-year-old vines on sandy, rocky soils.  The nose is light with earth, stones, and blue fruit.  In the mouth the tight stoney, blue fruit is steely with acidity eventually becoming blacker in flavor.  The tighter, stoney fruit mixes with watering acidity, and some drying tannins.  There is a certain lightness and contemporary style to the wine.  ** Now-2015.
