Elegant Cook Notes

Kindzmarauli, Red Wine of Georgia

Posted on April 7, 2016 at 1:20 PM


Kindzmarauli; a semi-sweet red wine, traditionally aged for 2 years, is produced in the Kvareli region of Georgia, from Saperavi grapes.

Kindzmarauli is a naturally semi-sweet red wine. The ripeness of the purple Saperavi grapes from which this dessert wine is made is balanced by fine, soft-textured tannins. Similar to Port, Kindzmarauli has achieved recognition throughout Europe for over half a century, owing to its supreme quality and magnificent taste.

Kindzmarauli is a legendary name in Russia, where this wine remains a coveted commodity among the new connoisseurs. Saperavi wine has a very dark, rich, ruby-red colour. Its notes of berries and fruit complement beef dishes, cheese, and dessert.
