Saperavi… seriously great wine

 This beautiful old  historic building located in Williamstown, South Australia is home to Domain Day cellar door which has some unique wines from its cool climate vineyards.  

A particular wine favourite of mine, Saperavi, has proved difficult to find in SA until now and Domain Day's version is simply gorgeous… Highly Recommended :)  On arrival, we were greeted by their cellar door manager, Jimmy Day - his passion for his wines was infectcious and we treated to not only delicious Saperavi tastings but other styles as well. 

For the uninitiated Saperavi is a red wine grape variety that is a native of Georgia in the former Soviet Union where the grapes are known for their dark pink flesh and very dark skins, from which they get their name.  It makes a intensely deep purple coloured wine with great tannins to give outstanding cellaring potential.
