Evan & Tate Comes To India

Grammatically and phonetically this name has caused enough internal debate. Arguments were presented as to whether it is pronounced “Evans” or “Ivaans”, to which the reply from the winery came, “Depends how posh you are; but Evans is fine.” I could further try and split hairs for the sake of argument, and agreement of numbers, […]

The French Loire Valley, aka the valley of Kings, has been the land of origin of great wines. Robust Chinons, sweet Muscadets, dry whites of Saumur and Pouilly Fumé, and the rosés of Anjou that the world adores. But what puts envy in the hearts of many are their crisp, refreshing, minerally sparkling wines. Bouvet […]

The Jordanian Extravaganza

Jordan was one of those few to claim their hand in giving wine to the world. Nevertheless, it was not to be seen anywhere on the world wine map. The wineries used local grapes to make not-so-appreciable wines. Lack of viticultural and vinification knowledge and inappropriate viticultural areas held-back the country from displaying its true caliber. It […]

But tasting two Port […]

Though they aren’t that easily seen, at least not in India, but some have the calibre to compete with […]

Tasting Austrian Whites

WEINGUT CHRISTIAN REITERER (Western Styria/ Steirmark): Rose from Styria like none other. WEINGUT TSCHEPPE AM POSSNITZBERG (Leutschach): Morillon maybe Chardonnay but is made differently. Stainless steel and no Malo-lactic. This house does a mean version. Lean at start but builds weight as it goes. Vom Czamillonberrg 08 is a stunner: dried mushrooms, porcini and truffled, […]
