Taking inspiration from the qualities of the oak tree – strength, commitment, and joy, Grover Zampa has launched a new wine, Grover Chêne Grande Reserve Chardonnay.
The new Chêne Grande Reserve Chardonnay is the most graceful white wine which has been aged for 9 months in French oak barrels. This gives it a rich creamy texture with a toasty flavour and hints of vanilla. Made from premium Chardonnay grapes, this wine is the best expression of Indian terroir and an extension of our estate-bottled Chêne Grande Reserve.
Exhibiting the subtle and elegant aromas of nectarine, hazelnuts, vanilla, and crème brûlèe, this delectable wine consists of concentrated flavours of apple, pear, and green plums.
Speaking on the new addition, Vivek Chandramohan, Chief Executive Officer says, “Chardonnay is a Noble Grape variety in white wines! It is complex and sophisticated with high aging potential. With the help of our expert viticulture team, we have tested this variety and succeeded in producing grapes that were right to make high-quality reserve wines.”
“We strongly believe that the Indian market has a huge potential for Chardonnay. It is truly one of the most popular grape varieties in India and across the globe. Owing to its extremely delicate and challenging process to grow, very few wineries in India produce a Chardonnay however we have been successful to have achieved it with our experience and vision.”
The Grover Chêne Grande Reserve Chardonnay pairs beautifully with light and delicate food such as steamed or grilled fish, lightly cooked crab, prawns, pasta and risotto with spring vegetables.
The texture and smoothness of the wine also pairs well with cream enhanced soups, mildly spiced creamy Indian curries with spinach, potatoes, fish and poultry.
