¦Sula Wine Tasting Session At Roadhouzz¦
The session was held by Mr.Soham Poddar and food served by Roadhouzz.It is my gratitude towards them for the wonderful experience.
The session started with a general discussion about wines and how the are made and preserved.later we moved on to taste some finest wines mady by Sula Vineyards accompanying with their food pairings.
1.Sula Brut Tropicale
The Brut Tropicale is a 1.5 litre beauty and is Sula’s first Blanc de Noirs.It is a sparkling wine made from premium black grapes including Pinot Noir and it is made in the traditional champagne method making it an elegent, light and crisp fruity wine which is smooth on the palate.Its pale coral bubbly burst of passion fruit, biscuits and peach makesthis one of the finest wines from the house of Sula.The ideal pairing would be fried prawns, kebabs and barbeque.
2. Sula Chenin Blanc Reserve
After spending two months in French oak, it presents a melon, honey and citrus notes with hints of grassy and earthy aroma to the nose.A notable acidity and hint of sweetness gives this wine a balanced structure and refreshing character.Salads,goat cheese and shellfish will be a lovely pairing with it.Less Spicy snack or food is recommendable.
3. Hardy’s Stamp Sweet Red
It is one of the imported wines by Sula from the house of Hardy Wines.This wine is imported from Australia consisting mostly of Shiraz and Petit Verdot, tastes slightly different from regular wines.It has a fresh fruity smell with a hint of vanilla which I felt.This wine was slightly on the sweeter side from the others I tasted.Pork meat, lamb and chicken barbecue is my suggestion to try with this wine .
4. Sula Chenin Blanc Late Harvest
Chenin Blanc Late Harvest or also called Desert Wine is the best way to end a perfect meal.This sweet wine is made of Chenin Blanc grapes, a fraction of which is fermented in second fill American Oak Barrels and blended with other tank fermented wines.It has aromas of honey and dry fruits like almond and nuts.It tastes best with deserts like cheese cake, custards and moose.
