Wine Time 4: Seagram Nine Hills Shiraz

This wine cost 465 rupees and was a 2006 vintage. It couldn't be any earlier, because Seagram only started making Indian wine since last year. They do already have a big Indian presence with liquor brands here. Seagram's also owns Jacob's Creek in Australia.

The shiraz tasted very jammy, with a slight aftertaste that wasn't good but also wasn't that strong. The label calls it medium-bodied, but I would say it was pretty big and bold. Would be good with tomato dishes and meat. 8 out of 10.

(Here's a rough map showing where exactly in India the Nashik valley is.)
