Miazma Wines at Mandwa Beach-Picture Perfect

Maharashtra based Globus Wines organised a food and pairing event last Sunday at the Cazacommodove Resort at the Mandwa Beach where guests were taken on a speed boat from the Gateway of India to taste delectable food paired with Miazma Wines, the first of a series of events the producer Karan Jain plans. Our correspondent Malathi Natarajan was impressed.

Increased sophistication about global cuisine, coupled with the lot of varieties available in the local wine market, makes for a myriad of possible food and wine pairings for us Indians.

The number of choices can confound budding enthusiasts. Do not worry says Karan Jain (CEO Globus Wines, the makers of Miazma wines) - rely on a few general rules of thumb on which you can build your wine and dining repertoire.

Globus Wines has taken a great leap forward in the foray of pairing its wines with Indian cuisine and the first of a series of events was held on 10th Jan at the Mandwa beach.....& what an event it was!

A speed boat to take you away from the hustle and bustle of Mumbai to a serene, sprawling villa in Mandwa on a sunny yet pleasant Sunday was a brilliant start to a relaxed afternoon.

The pairing started off with Miazma Chenin Blanc - very refreshing, light bodied with tropical flavours – and curried pumpkin and feta tarts and spinach and parmesan samosas for the vegetarians and pan seared fish with coriander and mint pesto and lamb rolls with basil yogurt dip for the rest.

This was followed by spicy achari potatoes with the Chenin Reserve a delicate wine, fruity and balanced with lively acidity and Cottage cheese stuffed ravioli with tikka sauce. The carnivores had red prawn Thai curry with semolina cake with a Red Reserve which was a blend of Shiraz and Cabernet.

‘Excellent event...cannot think of a better getaway than this’ said Narendra Kumar, High Priest of the Indian Haute Couture industry.

‘Indian wine has a long way to’s in the nascent stage and the quality in general is really bad today. If I need to pay a little more to get an imported wine, I would certainly do so. However, I do find the Miazma wines exceptionally good’ said another guest.

Great wines but the Chenin Blanc is a bit too sweet and overpriced said another....however, the number of finished bottles did suggest a different story. 

The guest list was an eclectic mix of publishers, businessmen, head-hunters, spirit distributors, F&B managers, bankers &...these events are never complete without being graced by our celebrities!

There is one question that I have been asking Karan for the past 3 years and am yet to get a response from him - want to know how many hours does his day comprise of as he cannot achieve what he has if he only has 24 hours like the rest of us!
