Peculiarities of vinification. This natural sweet dark-ruby-coloured wine is crafted from Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, grown in the vineyard of the protected geographical indication «Kuban. Taman peninsula». The grapes are left on the vine until the sugar level of 320-330 g/l is attained. Due to the high density of the wine and the sugar level, the fermentation proceeds very slowly and requires permanent control of winemakers – but it eventually gives a light sweet wine.

Sensory characteristics. Flavour: elegant, buttery-vanilla, with notes of blackcurrant jam, sour cherry and chocolate. The wine feels fresh and juicy on the palate, with notes of berry jam, smoked sour cherry and prunes, and a long berrylike finish with caramel nuances.

Food pairing: desserts based on chocolate sponge cake with sour cherry, prunes and berry jam; chocolate plombières; blackcurrant souffle; chicken liver with wine caramel.

To be served at 5 - 7 °С.



Denis Rudenko, Russian wine expert

«[Velvet Season Saperavi] is a passito style on the Russian land. All four Fanagoria Velvet Season wines are very nicely crafted wines, with an excellent acidity, well-balanced and intense».
