Origin Georgia

Aleksandrouli (Georgian: ალექსანდროული) is a Georgian red grape variety.[1]

History[edit]

The grape is reputed to be one of the oldest and greatest of the Georgian varieties, but is also reported by the Geilweilerhof database as a selected seedling of Muscat of Alexandria.[citation needed] This may reflect two varieties, the Alexandrouli wine grape and the table grape Alexandriuli Muscat.

Distribution and Wines[edit]

Used in Georgia to produce a semi-sweet red wine known as Khvanchkara (Joseph Stalin's favourite wine),[2] or as a medium bodied, semi-dry, chewy blend (with Mujuretuli) having good acids and claimed to have aroma flavours reminiscent of pomegranates.

Vine and Viticulture[edit]

The grape seems to prefer the wetter western half of Georgia.

Synonyms[edit]

Alexandrouli is also known under the synonyms Aleksandroouly, Aleksandrouli, Aleksandrouli Shavi, Alexandreouli, Alexandroouli, Alexandrouli, Kabistona, and Kabistoni.[1]
