Telavi Marani Kindzmarauli 2012

External Review by Wine Gems @ Perriello's:

Kakheti, Republic of GeorgiaTelavi Wine Cellar Marani Kindzmarauli is an estate-bottled Georgian red wine of controlled appellation of origin. Telavi Wine Cellar was founded in 1915 near Telavi, the central town of Kakheti, planting its first vineyards in the same year. Its philosophy combines modern technology with the ancient Georgian tradition of Marani, the sacred place for every Georgian, where the grape harvest is gathered, pressed and crushed in oak barrels and traditional clay jugs (quevri). The winery owns 450 hectares of vineyards along the Alazani River Valley in the most important appellations of the Kakheti wine region. The valley is divided by the river and guarded on one side by the Great Caucasian mountains (elev 3000-4000m) and by the Tsiv-Gombori mountain range on the other. This spectacular setting is the home of our Georgian wine gem.Telavi Wine Cellar Kindzmarauli is made 100% from the native Georgian Saperavi grape. This wonderful dark red wine is medium sweet with a silky palate, with notes of cherry, blackberry and prune. The wine's natural sweetness is nicely balanced by its acidity. It is clean, fresh and complex with a long finish.Enjoy Telavi Wine Cellar Kindzmarauli chilled as an aperitif or as a sweet table wine with dessert, soft cheeses and fruit.
