Sula Shiraz 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Enterprising Stanford-educated engineer Rajeev Samant founded the Sula Vineyards in 1997. Their first wine, released in 2000, was widely acclaimed as one of India's best wines. Since its inception, Sula has rapidly established itself as India’s leading premium wine brand, helping spark a wine revolution that has seen consumption grow at 25% annually and several new wineries come up in the Nashik area. Firmly committed to remaining at the forefront of Indian wines, Sula continues to experiment with new varietals, engage in sustainable agriculture, support the local rural economy, and, of course, make wines of outstanding quality and superb value. The Shiraz is a deep purple colour, spices and smokiness on the nose followed by blackberries and black pepper on the palate. Hints of dark chocolate, vanilla and jammy fruit characters come through, and it is medium bodied with round tannins. Enjoy it with spicy dishes such as tandoori, and red meats.

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
