Indian Wines to see you through 2012
If I was asked to select one wine from India’s top producers, I would choose a Viognier from Grover, one of the earliest producers of this varietal, Chenin Blanc from newcomer, Fratelli, because it’s dry, and Sauvignon Blanc from Sula for its fragrant nose and consistency.
Among the reds I’d go for Nine Hills Cabernet Sauvignon, Four Seasons for their Reserve range and Zampa for its sparkling wine, signing off on a sweet note with Reveilo’s Late Harvest Chenin Blanc, and so cover the most representative styles. Today, we have a reasonable choice of wines produced in India to see us through most occasions. Just be sure the stock is fresh or the wines have been well stored for them to reflect the producer’s reputation.
