Why Not Try an Indian Wine?
Looking for something a bit different to accompany your Indian take away? Why not try a bottle of Indian wine.
Fiona Beckett, the wine writer for The Guardian, recently reported on a wine tasting organised for the launch of a new book called The Wines of India: A Concise Guide by Peter Csizmadia-Honigh.
Of the reds she tried, she was most impressed with Misfit 2013 from Myra Vineyard which she described as a “really gorgeous blend of cabernet and shiraz”. It is from the Karnataka region, one of the premier wine growing areas in India, and will shortly be available from Premia Wines.
Beckett likened the Grover Zampa La Reserve 2013 to a Chilean or Argentinian wine. This red is available from Amazon.
As for white wines, India’s winemakers strongly favour sauvignon blanc. Beckett quite liked Sula’s Sauvignon Blanc, which is available from Marks & Spencer on their Jewel of Nasik label. However, she much preferred another Sula white, the Dindoori Reserve Viognier 2015 and recommended it as a perfect accompaniment for a korma. It is available from Corking Wines of York.
