Sula Chenin Blanc 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Semi-dry, refreshingly light wine bursting with fresh, fruity characters which make for a delightful aperitif. Pair with food that has a hint of sugar and spice, such as Southeast Asian or Gujarati dishes. Serve well chilled, 6-8°C.

Sula Vineyards is a winery in the Nashik region of India, just outside of Mumbai. It was established by tech engineer Rajeev Samant, who saw the potential for growing grapes and producing quality wines in this otherwise mostly unchartered territory. With the help of Sonoma, California winemaker Kerry Damskey, Samant started making wines at his 30-acre family estate in 1997. The wines began to garner acclaim, and the label soon became known as one of India’s top premium wine brands. Other vineyard sites and winery locations were established in Nashik and Dindori though the next decade. The winery produces single varietal whites and reds as well as blends, rosé, sparkling wines in the méthode champenoise and a late harvest Chenin Blanc dessert wine. The winery is known for employing local farmers and promoting wine-making as a viable agri-business for India.  Read less

I first had this as a wine pairing over a year ago at L'Ecole in Manhattan. I was surprised at this wonderful wine - buttery and caramelly flavors, rich and velvetty in the mouth. It pairs with almost anything, but goes particularly well with fatty fish dishes, indian food, and chinese food. Wonderful with fruit and cheese as well! I adore this wine and buy it by the case when I can!

Amazing that it leaves its mark on the back of the tongue similar to indian spices.

Very smooth and as other reviewers have said, the buttery and caramel notes make it well worth the reasonable price.
