Producer Note

Situated in Nashik, India's largest grape-growing region, Sula Vineyards was set up in 1997 by Rajeev Samant & Kerry Damsky. They pioneered the growing of the French grape varieties Sauvignon Blanc and Chenin Blanc, which were first released in 2000 to wide acclaim as India's best white wines. Sula now cultivates Shiraz and Zinfandel amongst other international varieties and is broadly recognised as India's premium wine producer.

Vineyard

The grapes were grown in the picturesque sub-district of Nashik, Dindori which features gentle hills of red laterite and basalt rock. Dindori is one of the best regions for the cultivation of red wine grapes since they require relatively lighter soils. Welldrained soils on the slopes give way to heavier, clay soils on the valley floors. Clean air, plenty of monsoon rain and a cool climate all contribute to Dindori's terroir. The vines are trained on a high trellising system, which helps to maximise airflow, keeping the vines healthy and disease free. Rajeev Samant believes in being a steward of the land and in sustainable business practices. Under his guidance, Sula is an ecofriendly company, with a significant amount of its resources committed to sustainable winemaking practices and ensuring fair livelihoods for Sula's community of farmers across Maharashtra and Karnataka. A large number of Sula's workers come from disadvantaged communities and have seen a significant change in their standard of living through their employment with the company; this has been nothing short of a revolution in the surrounding villages.

Winemaking

The grapes were cold soaked and fermented at controlled temperatures of between 25° to 30°C, with regular and gentle pumping-over to extract flavour and tannins. The wine was matured in French and American barrels for 12 months.

Tasting Note

A full flavoured Shiraz, which is deep inky purple in colour and has pronounced aromas of sun-ripened red cherries, sweet spice and a hint of pepper. Rich dark fruits follow through on the full bodied palate, with a touch of eucalyptus and a rich finish.

Serving Suggestion

Grilled meats, especially lamb; curries such as lamb biryani, Seekh kebabs or roast lamb with all the trimmings. Also delicious with hard cheeses.
