We Recommend: De Casta Rose by Torres

May 22: With the scorching heat hitting practically every corner of India, here is De Casta Rose -a pink Spanish wine from Torres that is refreshing when chilled and may be enjoyed with a variety of snacks and vegetarian foods without burning a hole in your pocket and at Rs.900 with some conditions applicable, is well worth the money, recommends Subhash Arora

Click For Large ViewThis is a real treat for Rose lovers. Made from 65% Garnacha (Grenache) and 35% Cariñena (Carignan), this wine with a dark pink pleasant colour looks like a masculine Rose. Slightly off-dry, full of red fruits like cherries and raspberries, it is very easy and fresh on the palate. Tannins are soft and make it a classic wine for enjoying as an aperitif or with Indian cuisine with a wider spectrum including veg and non veg foods.

At a recently organised wine dinner for the Delhi Wine Club, this wine went to bat first with the Tapas at the Sevilla Restaurant at the Claridges. The members liked it so much that the wine with the label purchased as a part of the portfolio of 6 wines from Torres, evaporated quickly, validating my claim that it is a delicious, no-nonsense wine for gourmets, connoisseurs and novices alike for hot weather.

It retails at around Rs.1300 in Gurgaon and Rs.1400 in Delhi but at which price it is a decent wine falling outside our ‘We Recommend’ horizon. The importers and distributors, Prestige Wines and Spirits, have offered to sell them to the delWine subscribers at a special price of Rs.950 each if an order of 3 cases (36 bottles) is placed for delivery in Gurgaon. Call Saurabh at 9811302825 if you are interested in enjoying the hot weather or merely need a wine to help you survive it. Ideally, 3-4 friends should pool in and buy and stock at such unbelievably low special prices for a short time. Give them a reference of this report, if need be.

We have no commercial interest whatsoever in this wine or its sales directly and feel it is a good bargain at the current prices-editor
