Clovely Estate Saperavi 2016

Saperavi, an interesting one, seemingly finding a home in Queensland two recognised GIs. 

Dark fruited with a savoury undertow, spice tinged and that all manifests itself on the palate. 

Somewhat large tannins, good structure, the kind of wine that demands a red protein, perhaps in a lavish sauce to counter that tannin. 

Mouth-coating and palate filling. Certainly true to variety and gives the impression of conveying the rich South Burnett soils too. For $25 an excellent addition to an ever shifting vinous landscape. 90
