“Antaraa,” meaning the second note in Indian music, reflecting in a harmonious fusion of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. This unique blend marries the youthful vigour of Cabernet Sauvignon with the mature depth of Shiraz, creating a symphony of flavours that dance across the palate.

The wine’s composition is akin to a musical composition, with the boldness of young Cabernet Sauvignon against the velvety but spicy smoothness of mature Shiraz. The medium to full-bodied nature of Cabernet Sauvignon brings forth pronounced acidity and tannins, which linger on the palate. However, these assertive elements find balance and harmony in the presence of the mature Shiraz, whose subtle spice and richness enhance the wine’s complexity.

Pairing such a special wine demands an equally distinctive culinary experience. I opted for a dish featuring achari chicken tikka infused into a flavourful sauce, served over pasta and topped with a sprinkle of cheese. The robust spiciness of the achari sauce complemented the wine’s bold flavors, while the creamy texture of the cheese softened the dish, creating a beautifully rounded mouthfeel. Together, the wine and dish formed a heavenly combination, elevating the dining experience to new heights of gastronomic delight.

An extraordinary journey in the world of amazing experiences with wine,told in absolute aptness and most lucid lingo.
