La Réserve Chardonnay
The Chardonnay is perhaps one of the most popular white wine varietals for its rich, clean and oaky attributes. La Réserve Chardonnay has a pale yellow appearance with fragrant notes of fresh peach, melon, tropical fruit and a hint of lemon zest. Aged for 12 months in French Oak barrels, the wine appears rich and full on the palate and is complimented with soft oak notes and crisp acidity. Best served at 8 – 10 degrees Celsius, the wine pairs deliciously with salmon and lemon butter, goat cheese, Caesar salad and Indian accompaniments such as malai chicken tikka, tandoori crab or lobster and vegetable biryanis.
La Réserve Pinot Noir
La Réserve Pinot Noir, in its ruby red appearance is the definition of grace and strength. Matured for 12 months in French Oak barrels, the aromas are typically of an elegant bouquet of floral, berry fruit with a hint of soft oak notes. Layered with notes of red fruits like strawberry and raspberry, it combines grace, majesty and complexity on the palate. La Réserve Pinot Noir pairs best with baked veal, poultry dishes and varied Indian platters like mutton kheema, paneer tikka and chicken curries.
