Wine in bed, the life of a king

Sunday was planned to be the hangover cure day. And it was needed. After a not soo long night (we left the club around 4am), but quite a lot of drinks we needed to take a rest and spend the day on Sunday mostly inside our hostel sleeping. Luckily the weather was shit as well! But it all didn’t help as the day came to an end and I had to decide on a drink. The easiest option would have been one of the many easy-to-drink beers here in Georgia. But since I already reviewed three of them, I decided to go for a wine. Afteral Georgia is damn famous for wine. So we went to the wine boutique that was about 100m away from the hostel and bought a small bottle of their cheapest and best wine. Teliani Valley Teluri Saperavi 2013 dry red wine.

It is made from Saperavi, Aleksandrouli, Mujuretuli, Ojaleshi and some other red grape varieties grown in west and east Georgia. The wine came in a 185ml bottle and was for Georgian levels pretty expensive–I paid about 1.50€ for the bottle. It had a slightly jammy but not really sour smell. The wine itself was dark red as you expect it from a dry red. The taste was quite sour and not really sweet or fruity. Semi said you could “taste the tannins from the barrel”, but I call bullshit. It was just fucking sour. Overall not that great but maybe that also had something to do with my hangover state of mind.
