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.


Vintage
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. 2019 was
one of Sula’s best vintages in terms of quality, delivering a good balance of flavours
and natural acidity.


Vineyard
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, reducing risk of disease. The red soil is composed of clay and gravel, which
has a high iron content and offers the vine good drainage. The grapes are handharvested.


Winemaking
The grapes were manually sorted and whole bunch pressed. The must was
fermented in stainless steel tanks for a period of 15 to 20 days, at controlled
temperatures of 15 to 18°C, capturing the essence and aromatics of India's first
Sauvignon Blanc. The wine was stored in stainless steel tanks retaining the purity of
fruit, prior to bottling.


Tasting Note
Fresh herbaceous aromas, guava, elegant white stone fruits and spice prelude a
dry, crisp palate which has a deliciously mouthwatering finish.
