Grover Zampa Vineyards recently added the Syrah-Grenache blend to its La Reserve range.
Grover Zampa Vineyards recently launched its Syrah-Grenache blend. Popular in the southern Rhone valley in France, south of France, Spain, and Australia’s new world regions, the red wine has been blended and matured according to La Reserve standards.
Commenting on the launch, Vivek Chandramohan, Chief Executive Officer said, “At Grover Zampa Vineyards, we are constantly innovating and launching new wines for evolving Indian palates as consumers are getting aware of internationally known varieties and brands. This is the first time in India that any winery has produced this internationally acclaimed blend. The wine is also India’s largest exported reserve wine.”
“We now have four still wines and one sparkling in La Reserve’s stable, each with a distinct character, grape variety, and 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,” he added.
The La Reserve was collaboratively conceptualized with Michel Rolland in 1995 and released in 1998. Syrah-Grenache has a dark purple color tone and is matured in French Oak barrels. It delivers a blend of blackberry, pepper, and floral aromas. Furthermore, it is adorned with notes of black cherry, vanilla, spice, and oak-derived flavors supported by rich textured and firm tannins.
