Saperavi

Saperavi (“sap-er-ah-vee”) is black skinned wine grape with a naturally high acidity. It is a teinturier-type (or red-fleshed) grape variety native to Georgia, where it is used to make many of the country’s most well-known wines.

It’s thick skin and loose bunches make it particularly suitable for growing in the South Burnett where it has become a highly sort after variety, producing a full-bodied, rich, fruity wine with soft tannins.

Although relatively unknown to most Australian consumers it is an excellent red which can produce the ‘bigger’ styles of wines Australia has become renowed for.
