Analog - 2018 Qvevri Saperavi

Fascinated by the ancient winemaking traditions of Georgia, Andy Buchan buried two Qvevri underground and ... voila. 100% Saperavi from the ferrous clay soils of the Symphonia vineyard, in Victoria’s King Valley, whole bunch pressed into Qvevri, along with 30% whole bunches, then left to ferment and mature underground on the same site. Resurrected after 10 months and sent to bottle unfiltered, without any additions. The circle of life is a beautiful thing.

This wine is a Gothic Romance, oscillating between opulent dark fruits – cassis, blackcurrant, black cherry, blood plum – and sumptuous renditions of smoke and suede. Pours a bloody, garnet red. This is the kind of wine Morticia Adams enjoys. Wrap your lips around this in the winter in front of the fire.
