(2021) 100% of the indigenous Tavkveri from the Kartli region, matured in Caucasian Oak barrels. A soft touch of brick on the rim, this has an orthodox nose of black fruits, delicate and fragrant tobacco and cedar spices, a little meatiness beneath. On the palate the wine has good, savoury black fruits, touched with a little leather and olive, but there is lightness and a certain silkiness too, on to a peppery finish, the sandy tannins and plum-skin rasp of acidity give a savoury character. Very good.
