Sula Sauvignon Blanc 2007
We were introduced to Sula, which means sun, last year while celebrating our friend's Indian Christmas. The wine had great floral aromas and crisp citrus flavors like a nice Californian Sauvingon Blanc. The acidic finish was refreshing and long. I would not have thought of India as a wine region. This winery was started by Rajeev Samant, a Stanford grad who enjoyed visiting wineries while living in CA. Mr. Samant left his job at Oracle in Silicon Valley and moved back to India where he converted the family fruit farm into a vineyard and winery. In fact, it was one of the first wineries in India and has grown to making 18 different wines. Today there are 30 wineries in India. Give this a try if you can find it. Look for the sun on the label. This is a really nice $15 Sauvignon Blanc.
