Lion Gri Saperavi 2010

MoldovaFully mature and ready to drink, this Moldova red is made from the saperavi grape. It is an excellent example of what ten years of ageing and patience can do for any well-balanced red. The colour is dark with a brick, red/orange edge signalling its age. The nose and flavours are a mix of menthol/cherry, cedar bark, and earth at this point. There is a notion of lifted fruit, but the overall balance is on point, allowing you to experience this red wine likely for you from a new country, a unique grape, and a combination of age and price you seldom see.Tasted: 07 February 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 22.99 private wine shops Producer: JV Lion-Gri Winemaking CompanyDistributors: LTC
