Drink now or cellar for up to 15 years. Decant 1 hour before serving.

One of the rarest wines on the planet, this semi-sweet red wine is a great example of this classic Georgian wine style which is made in tiny quantities by Marani winery. Founded in 1915, this well-known Georgian producer is located close to the town of Telavi in Kakheti province. Today they are experts at working with iconic Georgian varieties as well as introducing international varieties.

Usakhelauri is a truly unique Georgian wine which is only found in the highlands of Racha-Lechkhumi at the foot of the Caucasus mountain range. The sloping vineyards must face south in order to get enough sunlight during the day, while the cold nights help to naturally preserve lots of acidity and aromatics in the fruit. The conditions mean that yields are very limited and the fruit is typically harvested by hand due to the terrain and to maintain excellent quality.

You’ll immediately notice the bright ruby hue in the glass and subtle hints of red cherries, crushed wild berries, and notes of dried herbs. On the palate expect a subtle hint of sweetness balanced by punchy tannins, a medium body and a long, full finish.
