Wine tasting for Cisco at Trident, Gurgaon

Villa Maria Sauvignon Blanc Private Bin, 2015 Marlborough New Zealand

This intense Sauvignon Blanc is alive with a myriad of flavours dominated by gooseberry, passion fruit, fresh citrus, melon and herbaceous aromas. The wine has an enticing palate with a juicy flavour profile, purity and concentration, finishing crisp and clean with an interwoven thread of acidity.

Yalumba The Y Series Viognier, 2014 South Australia 

This wine is corn silk in colour with green hues. It expresses aromas of honeysuckle and jasmine, with poached quinces and apricot. The palate includes grapefruit, lemongrass and stone fruit, and the texture adds layers of fruit persistence. The added aging on lees and wild fermentation deliver a rich and silky mid-palate, whilst maintaining its freshness, making it a pleasure to drink. Pairs perfectly with harissa chicken or crispy rice pancakes with potato and chickpeas.

Dr. Loosen Reisling, 2014 Mosel Germany

This estate-grown Riesling showcases the mineral-driven style of the steep, blue slate vineyards in the middle Mosel. It comes from parcels owned by Dr. Loosen in the villages of Bernkastel, Graach and Wehlen. It is bright and vibrant with the classic white peach fruit and floral, flinty minerality that is so typical of this terroir. This wine makes an elegant aperitif and is an excellent match for seafood and spicy Asian cuisine.

Gaja Ca’Marcanda Promis Toscana IGT, 2013 Tuscany Italy

A delightful wine that combines elegance and suppleness of Merlot and Syrah with the austerity of Sangiovese. Balanced and approachable in its youth with considerable aging potential of 5 to 8 years.

Montes Alpha Merlot, 2013 Colchagua Valley Chile

Handsome ruby-red color. Outstanding nose of red berries, black cherry, black pepper, with hints of tobacco. These elements come through on the palate, revealing a full-bodied wine. Mid-palate is round and velvety, with an added touch of vanilla and toast, followed by a long and smooth finish.

 Chateau Ste Michelle Cabernet Sauvignon, 2013 Columbia Valley USA

The aromas offer notes of boysenberry, herb and barrel spices, with the Syrah blended in (11%) showing itself. The blue and black fruit flavours are lush and fruit forward, with soft tannins, a silky mouth feel and a sustained sense of balance. It drinks best at a cool 62 degrees. Fresh and expressive, deftly balanced and juicy, with raspberry and cherry flavours supported by hints of cinnamon and pepper. The finish persists against nubby tannins.

Wine Tasting for Cisco at ITC Grand Chola, Chennai

Masi Levarie Soave Classico DOC 2014, Veneto, Italy

Pale straw yellow colour with greenish reflections. Good intensity on the nose with hints of flowers and tropical fruit, particularly pineapple. On the palate, a refreshing acidity is well balanced by creaminess with melon and ripe pear flavours. Ideally served as an aperitif or with hors d’oeuvres, soups, pasta or simple rice dishes with Mediterranean flavours or with fish dishes.

Chateau de Parenchere Superieur Bordeaux Blanc 2015, Bordeaux, France

This blend contributes directly to the balance of the wine. The Sauvignon produces aromatic strength and freshness, while the Semillon complements this with a certain degree of roundness on the palate. The Muscadelle adds intense white flower notes to the aromatic range of the finished wine. A white wine with intense white and citrus fruit aromas, which is both fresh and round on the palate.

Selbach ‘Incline’ Riesling 2015, Mosel, Germany

Vinified in stainless steel, with just a hint of residual sugar, this wine vividly represents all that Mosel wine should be – Fruity with vibrant acidity, clarity, and precision; all highlighted by intense slate-driven minerality. Fresh-tasting, with snappy green apple and ripe citrus flavours flanked by plenty of savoury and herbal notes. Lemon drop accents show on the finish

Allan Scott ‘Hound’ Pinot Noir 2015, Marlborough, New Zealand

Hints of cherries, black plums and a maple on the nose. The ripe and sumptuous concentrated fruit is supported by subtle notes of oak. The wine finishes very smoothly with refined ripe, light tannins providing structure and a smooth silky long flavourful finish. Aged for 12 months in new French Oak.

Torres Altos Ibericos Tempranillo 2013, Rioja, Spain

Opaque cherry red. Rich cherry, black plum jam aromas with spicy green peppercorn and smoky notes. Intense, warm, with firm tannins nicely structured by oak aging and a backbone of subtle fruit acidity. Excellent with all kinds of tapas prepared with fresh ingredients; red meat, oil-rich fish and cheeses. Exquisite with cured pork.

Rolf Binder ‘Halliwell’ Shiraz Grenache 2013, Barossa Valley, Australia

The bouquet of this wine is filled with the abundance of berry fruit. The subtle use of both old and new oak combined with soft tannins comes through on the palate. Strong full bodied characters last right through to the back of the palate and linger. The wine boasts of ripe fruit characters.

Wine Tasting with Alchemy at The Chambers, Taj Lands End

Allan Scott Single Vineyard Moorlands Sauvignon Blanc 2015, Marlborough, New Zealand – Aromatic with lemon citrus and perfumed notes with hints of passion fruit and freshly crushed herbs. The palate is elegant with citrus, passion fruit and dried herbs; the oak influence is delicate and perfectly balanced with the clean refreshing acidity giving this wine a deliciously appealing finish.

Pighin Pinot Grigio DOC. 2015,  Friuli Grave, Italy – Straw yellow with lightly amber-coloured tinges in color with fruity and floral aromas including banana, pineapple and wisteria flowers. Persistent, excellent body and correct balance.

Château de Parenchère Cuvée Raphaël AOC 2011, Bordeaux, France – A very dense, very concentrated wine with elegant tannins that stand out, but are mellow and smooth. They are elegantly      woody, but not excessively to leave plenty of room for the fruit.

Prunotto Barolo DOCG 2012, Piedmont, Italy – Garnet red in colour with ample and complex aromas of violets and berry fruit, full and velvety in flavor and very balanced. Its structure and body make it an ideal match for meat and game dishes and for cheese.

Robert Mondavi Winery Cabernet Sauvignon 2013, Napa Valley, USA – Deep, enticing wild berry and black currant fruit weaves harmoniously with layers of fragrant tobacco leaf, forest floor and toast in a complex ribbon of flavor that flows into a deliciously long finish in this powerful yet refined taste of Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon. 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Cabernet Franc, 2% Malbec, 2% Petit Verdot, 2% Merlot.
