Georgian wines have been increased their haul of top medals in the latest Decanter World Wine Awards. Thirty-one wines were awarded Silver medals, in a diverse range of styles including dry red, dry white and especially qvevri wine.
And Tbilvino scooped two Platinum awards for a qvevri amber and a classic dry red wine.
Glekhuri Kisi was described by the panelists as:
“Rather exotic smoked/dried mango aromatics. There’s some sweetness here to alleviate a little the purging bitterness that leaves the mouth clean, like marmalade made from grapefruit skins, leaving an almost Sichuan pepper numbness. Exhilarating, exceptional stuff!”
Winery 97 Unfiltered Saperavi was described as:
“This has very primary, spicy black cherry/mulberry aromatics. The palate has grainy tannins, nice freshness, subtle oak and juicy, very ripe fruit. Consider laying this youthful wine down as a test of fortitude and patience.”
