Shavkapito, Pheasant's Tears, Kakheti, Georgia, 2015

19.99

A regal red, once enjoyed by Georgian kings, with a nose of woodsmoke and tobacco, a touch of aniseed and liquorice over lashings of plum and black cherries. It goes great with game birds, particularly roast pheasant or grouse. Pheasants are meant to have originated in Georgia, and in the region of Kizikh there is a saying that only the finest of wines can compel a pheasant to cry tears of joy - it sounds better in Georgian!
