For the love of wines…

We love our wine. This drink is our most preferred especially in moments of celebrations and merry-making. And one is constantly trying to develop a nose for good wines. Lately, we came across a bottle of joy worth mentioning. Beringer Founders’ Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, a carefully crafted wine made with deep berry, toasted oak and vanilla spice flavours. Time to thank, Aspri Spirits, one of the leading importers and distributors of premium wines and spirits in India who have also got in the Beringer wines.  One was supremely thrilled to treat oneself these winters with this wine comprising of one of the world’s most widely recognized red wine grape varieties.

It undoubtedly made for a smooth drink and worked well to sooth one’s taste buds.

Few other wines of theirs which deserve a mention here:

  • Beringer White Zinfandel Sparkling-

Lovely floral notes that are reminiscent of the wonderfully refreshing Spumante of Italy, with citrus and strawberry fruit nuances. Mexican and Thai food have the perfect amount of spice to be paired with the wine.

  • Beringer Pinot Grigio-

Aromas of lime and apple with just a hint of honeysuckle are complemented by the nectarine and apricot components on the palate.It works well on hot days and warm summer nights as a pre-dinner sipper or how about pairing it with some fresh salads and grilled chicken.

 P.S. Not to forget mentioning that none of these quality wines are going to pinch your pockets since they are priced rather well.

Cheers With Chianti Classico

It’s been long Sonali has been cursing me for showing a laid-back attitude and not posting on our blog. Well, yes that also reveals that all the recent posts were hard work of Sonali alone. But as New Year is close, I want to break this laze ice and get going. Giving a kick start to that is this small review of an Italian wine that a very lovable couple fetched all the way from the land of cheeses and pasta and fashion, Italy. Firstly, a big thank you Riti and Bharath for the intoxicating gift. This post is dedicated to you guys and to Sonali who kept up the blog all this while.

Chianti Classico 2009 comes in an elegant black bottle that features a black label with golden and white soft fonts.

Dark ruby in colour, this Italian beauty combines all things right and rounded. It is medium bodied and well balanced. I specially liked it for its soft and clean finish and balanced acidity.

Bouquet: Rich with notes of cherries, plums, and iris.

Taste: Deep cherry and leather flavours with subtle wood notes.

-Supple tannins, good acidity, and a lingering finish.

Being red, it definitely works well with spicy food or meats.

I myself had it with white cheesy pasta on and enjoyed each bit.

Cheers,

Shagun
