Hugh Hamilton The Oddball Saperavi 750ml
The genesis of Saperavi came about from my connection with Georgian winemaker Lado Uzunashvili, a new immigrant to Australia. He waxed lyrical of his country’s great red grape, and despite its absolute rarity in Australia, I decided to ‘give it a go’. I was captivated by his story about the Georgian wine history and this amazing grape. The text book would no doubt say “don’t do it”. However, I’m listening to the grapes. 13 vintages of Saperavi tells me year after year that this grape variety loves the terroir of McLaren Vale.
A refreshing cool green concoction with lemon and basil, the G’Vine gin Basil Smash is as much a treat for your eyes as it is for your taste buds!
