TOHU New Zealand Wine
12 Jul 2010 - 8:49am

It is a beautiful sunny wintery Wellington day. I am waiting to meet with the owner of TOHU. A Maori Wine maker based in one of the wine regions of New Zealand.

While waiting, I have decided to taste one of their reds. It is...... surprise surprise..... their Pinot! 2008. It has a bright and fragrant nose of Cherries and a touch of wild thyme. The elegant silky palate has sweet wild berries and more cherries and spicy Oak melded together delivers persistence and length. I have yummy New Zealand cheese to dance with this great New Zealand Pinot Noir.

Hope, I don't have to...

From the shape and size of the bowl to the thickness of the rim, the design of the glass is long renowned for having the ability to either enhance or ruin a wine's bouquet, taste and balance.

But what about the rest of us?

Does quality stemware really make the average person's wine taste measurably better? And do we really...

Madras wine scene
4 Feb 2010 - 9:20pm

The city of Madras / Chennai is a traditional city compared to Bangalore, Bombay or Delhi. Its a difficult city for a Wine lover. Its such a difficult task to find good wines here, even the good Indian Wines like Grover's or Sula or Chateau Indage wines.

We get only bad quality wines like Golkonda and Port wines made in India by manufacturers who themselves don't know what wine is all about. TASMAC shops all over Tamil Nadu stock only Beers and other IMFL bottles. Recently they have started distributing an imported French wine bottled in Pondicherry called The Warehouse. The quality...
