Aleksandrouli is one of the two local grape varieties that goes into making Khvanchkara – one of Georgia’s most highly sought after semi-sweet appellation reds, which was reputedly the favourite wine of Stalin. The other grape is called, Mujuretuli.
Here bottled dry, blended with 15% Mujuretuli, and aged for 12 months in oak. This is a wine with real typicity – enticing aromas of fresh cherry and caramel jump out of the glass. On the palate, it is balanced and light-to-medium bodied, with notes of strawberry and sour cherry. Juicy and moreish with oaky undertones. Not too dissimilar to a bright Pinot Noir. Perfect for quaffing in the summer with or without food.
