Aleksandrouli is an old dark-skinned red grape variety native to the eastern part of Georgia. The grape variety is vastly planted in the north-western region of Racha-Lechkhumi. Aleksandrouli could grow in any country, due to its drought resistance and can grow well on many different types of soils. It is well-known for its light and slightly sweet red wines, which are often blended with the Saperavi grape variety. Aleksandrouli is a late-ripening vine that has berries with a balanced content of sugar and acid, giving birth to fragrant red wines with aromas of cherry and pomegranate. When it is vinified as a dry wine in Kartli wine region often gives wines with characteristics of tobacco, pepper and meaty flavours bring complexity to the fruit with supple tannins suggesting a considerable potential to improve in bottle.
