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.
The vintage saw mainly warm and dry weather, except for when the Monsoon rains arrived, which helped to refresh the vines and replenish soil water reserves.
Since its inception Sula has been working to integrate a wide array of measures at its 97 hectare estate vineyard and within its winery to minimise the environmental impact of not only its farming, but also its processing and distribution practices. In the vineyard the vines are trained on a high trellising system, which maximises airflow. The red soil is composed of clay and gravel, which has a high iron content and offers the vine good drainage.
The grapes were whole bunch pressed and the juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks for a period of 25 to 30 days, capturing the essence and aromatics of India's first Sauvignon Blanc. The wine was then left to settle for approximately two months, prior to bottling.
Fresh herbaceous aromas of cut grass, green peppers and spice prelude a dry, crisp palate which has a deliciously mouthwatering finish.
A great match with Indian or Asian inspired cuisine, light salads or fresh shellfish dishes.
