So I opened a new bottle after a really long time. Hemant, a close friend came over to my new place and I decided to open a bottle which I have had with me for quite some time and had not opened for lack of company. So We decided to open the Sula Mosaic Grenache Syrah bottle of Red Wine. As the name suggests, the wine is a blend of two varietals - Syrah and Grenache.
I liked the bottle. Interesting packaging though not very expensive looking in keeping with its positioning to be a daily drinking wine. Good pricing too - the wine had an MRP of 360 Rs. Me and Hemant both agreed that this price needs to come further down to 150-200 Rs. a bottle so the average person can really start experimenting and consuming different types of wines in India.
On to the wine:
As you can see its got a very dark fruity color - I guess the influence of the Syrah. Low tanins and so you don't really get too much of a headache.
About the actual wine: We felt it was decent and good for casual drinking. It has a bit of an after taste so it needs some getting used to for the white wine drinkers esp. But all in all a very nice smooth wine. We had the wine a bit chilled (10mins) - something I would recommend doing in India. The wine was fruity and in my opinion could be a good accompaniment to Indian food esp. at restaurants where I hate ordering expensive wines as I always end up feeling ripped off. I'm going to order this one instead. I must also give credit to Sula for really being the one Indian wine company that seems to be able to deliver in quality between their bottles.
Would I recommend this wine? Yes. My advice to all wine drinkers is to buy and drink as many different types and varietals as possible without looking at the price. The price here will definitely surprise you esp. if like me you are used to always paying more than double for a bottle.
Going to leave you with another picture of the bottle with some nice sweets I picked up from Lonavala both residing on a center table that I designed for my new house.
