Tasting Note

Aromas of quince and pear on the nose. Tropical fruit flavours with mineral undertones can be found on the palate. A notable acidity and hint of sweetness give this wine a balanced structure and refreshing character.

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 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 broadly recognized as India's premium wine producer.
