Pheasant’s Tears Shavkapito 2017


SKU: PHTSHAV17 Category: Product ID: 2194


Earthy tobacco and leather mingle with fresh damsons, ending with substantial tannins. Decant and enjoy with red meats. A vibrant and earthy organic red from Georgia in the Caucasus made with this rarely seen grape variety.

Produced in a traditional style using qvevri – clay vessels lined with beeswax and buried in the ground – for fermentation and ageing resulting in a natural wine with a low level sulphur present. The wine itself has bold flavours with rich aromas of smoke, leather, tobacco and hints of anise precede a palate of plum, cherry and liquorice notes.

It’s a perfect partner to robust meaty dishes so goes well with grilled or roasted lamb, beef and game birds. This is solid, with a certain chocolate dustiness, some plum and blueberry and a mouthful of tannins, yet it comes in at a lovely low alcohol.
