Sula Selections has recently introduced The African Horizon series wine, which is produced in the Cape region of South Africa.
The African Horizon series is produced by the world’s largest fair trade producer, Origin Wine. Fair trade is a strategy for poverty alleviation and sustainable development. Its purpose is to create opportunities for producers and workers who have been economically disadvantaged or marginalised by the conventional trading system.
The African Horizon wines, produced from carefully selected grapes grown in the sun- drenched vineyards of the Cape includes the best of South Africa’s varietals – a lush Pinotage, a peppery Shiraz and a crisp Sauvignon Blanc.
The African Horizon Pinotage Pinotage is a cross between Cinsault and Pinot Noir and is South Africa’s own variety. This Pinotage is one of the Cape’s best values. The wine is deep red with inviting aromas of vanilla and mocha. The palate has chocolate and ripe black cherries with soft spicy tannins. It goes well with meat and a variety of cheeses. Ideally, it should be served slightly chilled at 16-18°C.
The African Horizon Shiraz
This fruity Shiraz is brimming with blackcurrant and peppery aromas, and a mouthful of juicy plum flavours. Versatile, it partners with a wide variety of food. It goes very well with lamb and soft cheeses. It should be served slightly chilled at 16-18°C.
The African Horizon Sauvignon Blanc
This aromatic Sauvignon Blanc has a complex grassy nose with passion fruit and pear aromas. Capsicum and tropical fruits mark a full palate with a long finish. It is perfect as an aperitif or with spicy curries. It is served well chilled at 8-10°C.
The wines are available in Maharashtra and Goa at Rs 950–1,000, which is all-inclusive.
