Grapes

Saperavi,

Production

The varieties grown for the Alejandro label, such as Vermentino and Saperavi, adapt exceptionally well to the climate of the Murray Darling wine-growing region, which mirrors that of their ancestral homes. Dark and fruit-driven, Alejandro Premium Australian Wines are the perfect companions for all things tapas.

The soil is unique to the Murray River system and is known technically as calcareous earth, ranging from brown to red-brown loamy sand, sandy loam or loam. The surface is neutral to moderately alkaline with increasing alkalinity at depth as textures become more clayey and calcareous. Overall, the soil supports the vigorous growth and high grape yields. Once vinified, the wine is aged in a combination of French & American oak for 6 months.

Tasting Notes

Dark purple to black in appearance. On the nose, mulberry, dark fruits, fennel and spice combined to produce a complex aromatic wine that resembles a rich, dark fruit cake. Rich, tannic, full-bodied with lots of French and American oak to complement the fruits and spices.

This a wine suited to dense wintery stews or nights in front of a fire.
