Reach for a Rosé

Indian wines are catching up on the global scene, which is paralleled with the growth of rosés. Our climate and culinary preferences make rosé wines an uncomplicated and obvious choice. They pair well with our myriad spices and complex cooking techniques and pose as a single drink that carries over from aperitifs to partner with various dishes throughout the meal, says SI contributor, Gagan Sharma.

York Vineyards and Sula Vineyards make playful, blush type wines with Zinfandel, while Fratelli and Grover Zampa have taken the dry Shiraz route, with Vallonné Vineyards producing the lone-ranger Cabernet Sauvignon rosé. Other producers, like Nine Hills, Turning Point and Four Seasons are yet to define their identity.
