2017 La Petite Mort Amphora Saperavi is a different beast entirely. Destemmed, whole berries are placed in Amphorae and left to do their thing for 193 days. Incredible really. Although the wine has plenty of colour, it’s not impenetrable and the tannins are lovely. Chewier than the Shiraz Viognier, but silky nonetheless. Full-ish body and very complex. Black cherry and red, black pepper, cassis, kirsch, dark chocolate, dried flowers and did I mention that silk. Black Forest Gateau. Very different – and we loved it.
