The India Wine Challenge concluded last month which showcased more than 500 wines from around the world making it by far the most comprehensive wine show in the country.
It was good to notice some positive comments from the judges on the future of the Indian wine industry. The fact that a red wine (Chateau d’Ori Cabernet-Merlot) other than the well known La Reserva (from Grover’s) made it to the top was also encouraging.
I am not surprised to see three Kiwi wines among the trophy winners considering the fact that many wines from this tiny country down under have featured highly in major wine competitions in recent years. I plan to share my thoughts about what makes New Zealand wines so special in one of my future posts.
These are the trophy winners for 2008. For more information on the event, visit the official page.
