Anderson Cellar Block Saperavi: Review

Very good complex aged wine made. Anderson Cellar Block Saperavi 2104 is made from hand picked and basket pressed grapes. The wine has a deep, clear ruby/purple colour and a clean, pronounced nose. There’s a lot going on in the flavour department. Dried and cooked blackberry, white pepper, liquorice, spices such as cloves and nutmeg and then some and cedar. As a result of all these flavours, the bottle age and good winemaking, this interesting and very enjoyable wine . It’s won a hatful of gold medals at awards shows.

14.2% alcohol by volume. Egg white used in the fining process.

Food Matching | Food Pairing

Personally, I’d enjoy this wine by itself so to fully enjoy the complexity. Drink with meat stews or a roast. See my cheese and wine pairing guide for more options.

Where to Buy

I bought mine from Anderson Winery’s cellar door for about AUD 45. It can be bought online from them too.
