Vinsura : A Forgettable Wine


I made the mistake of an adventurer last weekend at the wine shop of Hyper City. I was looking for some new Shiraz wine and walked around a couple of times and chanced upon this new brand – “Vinsura” from Vinsura Winery of Nashik valley in Maharashtra. I had not heard of this brand till that time, and decided to take a chance as the positioning in the wine shop was quite prominent. Plus, the English on the bottle read well and there was this signature of the wine maker on the bottle. I got influenced and since the price was decent I picked up a Chenin Blanc as well as a Shiraz from this winery.

What a mistake ?!

I did not get one lousy wine, I got two lousy wines !!

While the Chenin Blanc was not so good, the Shiraz was just terrible. What kind of wines are these, I would like to ask Mr M.P. Sharma who signed off on the bottles as the Wine Maker of Vinsura Winery.

I would strongly suggest to any wine connoisseur to avoid these forgettable wines. These wines are no match for a Sula Chenin Blanc or a Sula Dindori Reserve or a Grovers’ La Reserve at all. There is a world of difference, and in the world of wines even a small difference in the quality of wines is unacceptable, and when there is such a wide difference I would rather throw the bottles out.

Look at what is written out on the Shiraz bottle of wine – “Strong, sharp and powerful (!), Vinsura Shiraz is in many ways like a gripping power balllad that lingers long after it’s heard. The mysterious dark red and enticing aromas are like preludes to a striking concerto waiting to unfold. And when it does unfold, it”ll show you a time as unforgettable (!) as Shiraz’s distinctive taste”.

Very well written for what is essentially a forgettable wine with no such lingering taste. The exclamation marks above are mine, of course. I could not sense the dark berry aromas of freshly ground black pepper and distinct floral notes. Neither could I sense the revealing flavours of ripe fruits on my palate. There was no oak complexity that was claimed. There was no soft, lingering finish. It was a bland wine with no impact and you drink it because you paid money for it.

Sorry Vinsura, you got to do a much better job than just writing a better English describing your wines at your website and on your bottles ! Try again, all the best. But my money has been wasted.

In my scale, your wines do not merit even a 4 out of 10.
