famous monk and wine connoisseur (now you know why Martin Luther said Beer is
made by man but wine is made by God) Dom Perignon, on having a sip of champagne
said “Come quickly, I am tasting the stars”. Seriously, can anything be more
alluring than the taste of this good ol’ nectar?
weekend, CM and her fiancé, let’s call him Big (yes he is a big fan of Sex and
the City) spent their time tasting (not just that) and savouring some of India’s
was ‘Global Day of Discoveries’ at The Renaissance Hotel & Convention Centre
and they decided to put together a wine tasting soiree. Four of India’s
wine producers were present – Fratelli; Sula; Grover & Turning Point each
displaying their produce.
Sula Rose Brut
decided to start with the Sula Rose Brut
– sophisticated salmon coloured wine packed with a million bubbles. Beautifully
mild on the palate it is a mixture of Chenin Blanc & Zifandel grapes. To
all the newbies who are looking to start drinking wine; I would suggest you opt
for this one. Goes perfectly well with brie.
next one was the Fratelli Chardonnay
– tart (acidic), this wine is a little high on the alcohol content
Fratelli Shiraz Rose
Fratelli Shiraz Rose – rose gold
color with fruity tones. Light and easy on the palate
SulaDindori Shiraz Reserve
SulaDindori Shiraz Reserve - extremely strong; smelt like burnt lego (yes
the game); full bodied wine. Not for the faint hearted
By now, I was swinging in my own world.
Rumi’s words described me the best - “Either give me more wine or leave me
The next was Turning Points’ Chenin Blanc – crisp, light, floral and easy on the
Turning Point’s Sauvignon Blanc was spicy, hint of
Grover’s Viogner was the winner for
me. With hints of tropical fruit like peach, it grows on you. The taste is not
as intense as the smell.
Grovers’ La Reserve
Grovers’ La Reserve, a nice violet
purple in colour with a distinct oak flavour
Do me a favour and go with your partner for at least one wine tasting session.
Trust me the bubbly will make both of you really happy!
you are prone to acidity, be careful not to drink or mix too much wine. The morning
aftermath could be bad
