Diwali Gifting Issue: Message in a bottle

From the Chandon Brut by Moet Hennessy to the Vallonne Merlot Reserve, take a look at the best wines India has to offer


Chandon Brut

Moët-Hennessy’s just-launched Indian sparkling wine has pushed the standards for sparkling wines in the country. Aromas of pear, green apple, toasted bread with hints of honey and vanilla on the nose and palate with a creamy texture and lovely dry finish. 1,200.

Charosa Selections Sauvignon Blanc 2013

A fruit-forward wine with tropical fruits and a hint of freshly-cut grass. The lovely fresh acidity almost reminded us of a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. On a par with any international Sauvignon Blanc. 750.

Sula Rasa Shiraz

Sula’s flagship red wine is made with the best Shiraz grapes from their vineyards and aged in French oak barrels. The complex, full-body wine with plenty of black fruits, pepper and oak notes, is smooth and strong. 1,150.

Grover Zampa La Reserve

Perhaps the best known Indian red wine label, Grover Zampa is still going strong. Wine maker Michel Rolland’s expertise is evident here. Vanilla and pencil shavings on the nose, the fruit-forward palate has vanilla, spice and woody undertones.800.

Vallonné Vin De Passerillage

Since it’s Diwali, a dessert wine might be a good gifting option. The wine has intense flavours of vanilla, honey, apricots and citrus, both on the nose and palate. It is also one of the best-looking Indian wine bottles. 810.

Aneesh Bhasin, co-founder & CEO, Indian Wine List.

Indian Wine List has launched a wine gift pack of three family-owned imported wines, including an Italian Prosecco at 4,199 for Mumbai, and 4,700 for Bangalore, Delhi, Pune and Chennai (including delivery charges). For details, contact 09892433300 or email
