Saignée  2021

Saignée 2021
Rosé of Saperavi

Saignée, French for ‘bleeding’, is the process of separating (or bleeding off) a small percentage of juice at crush from red grapes. This concentrates our red wine and leaves us with stunning magenta pink juice that we fermented separately.  Violets on the nose with grapefruit and wet stone. Cranberry, strawberry jello, and naval oranges with a mouthwatering grapefruit pith finish from the vibrant acidity.

Saperavi is a Georgian grape (the country!) with a long history. It is one of the few grapes in the world know as a 'teintuier' grape, meaning it has red flesh as well as red skins. This helps give this rosé its intense hot pink color.
