First of all a little history:
SapОravi is native to Georgia – Kakhetia region – where it has been cultivated for a long time.
We meet this variety in many countries such as Russia, Bulgaria, the republics of the Caucasus, Crimea, … and we will take care not to confuse it with others, it is true quite close, bearing the name of followed saperavi usually from another name.
In France, the “real Sapéravi” is hardly known. However, since November 2012 it has been registered in the Official Catalog of Wine Grape Vine Varieties. At Campuget we established it in 2013 in our soil of the Rhone Valley and in the Mediterranean climate.
To work without sulphites is to work without a net, in the very pure expression of grapes.
On the nose, the cherry cherry expression is surprising. On the palate, the tannins present are soft, rich, powerful.
Finally a precise and rigorous breeding allowed to preserve wine with all its freshness, guarantee of a long guard.
A surprising variety, a real discovery.
