Teliani Valley - Khashmi
Red Dry, 12,5%
People say that whenever you go to pay someone a visit and they welcome you with ‘Khashmi Saperavi’, ' you should stand up and bless them with all your heart'! This legendary wine was collected grape by grape, drop by drop, and was aged in oak barrels before being bottled. Khashmi Saperavi is a dark cherry-red with strong notes of oak at first, followed by aromas of ripe plums, black hawthorn and light pepper. The wine is full of tannins. It is as stable and strong as an oak tree.
JSC Teliani Valley was founded in 1997 on the basis of “Teliani Winery of Vintage Wines”, which was built in 19th century in Tsinandali, in the neighborhood of Teliani’s vineyards. Tsinandali, due to peculiarities of its soil and microclimate, has always been the center of Georgian viticulture. Here in 1886-1887, at the place of the old wine cellar and winery of Prince Alexander Chavchavadze, a two-storey, 150 thousand-bucket winery was built by the decree of the Russian Emperor’s brother Michael Romanov. In 1891 Mossano, French winemaker from Bordeaux was invited to this cellar.
