Grover Zampa Vineyards has announced the launch of India’s first ever Syrah-Grenache blend. This blend is extremely popular from the southern Rhone valley in France, south of France, Spain, and the new world regions of Australia. The wine has been blended and matured according to La Reserve standards which is the flagship preserve wine from Grover Zampa’s stable. This is also, India’s first reserve wine conceptualised in association with Michel Rolland in 1995 and released in 1998. With its majestic dark purple colour tone, La Réserve Syrah-Grenache is matured in French Oak barrels and exhibits a powerful bouquet of blackberry, pepper, and floral aromas. It is layered with notes of black cherry, vanilla, spice, and oak-derived flavours which are supported by rich textured and firm tannins.

Speaking on the launch, Vivek Chandramohan, Chief Executive Officer says, “At Grover Zampa Vineyards, we are constantly innovating and launching new wines for evolving Indian palates as consumers are getting aware about internationally known varieties and brands. This is the first time in India, any winery has produced this internationally acclaimed blend. The wine is also India’s largest exported reserve wine. We now have 4 wines in La reserve’s stable, each with distinct grape maturity to cater to varied palates of wine connoisseurs. The last edition being Fume Blanc to the range in December, keeping up with long-standing tradition and passion for La Reserve range. The wines are made from a handpicked selection of some of our oldest Syrah and Grenache vines.”

La Reserve Syrah Grenache combines grace, splendour, and complexity on the palate! This full-bodied wine pairs well with barbecued and grilled red meats, stews, recipes with mushroom and pepper sauce. It also goes well with Indian cuisines like lamb kebabs, mutton biryani, and mildly spiced curry dishes.
