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

History

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

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

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

Synonyms

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