The estate sits on 24 acres of vineyards and they are an award winning winery.

The vineyard is in full production with planting of cabernet sauvignon, syrah, gamay, malbec, merlot and pinot gris grapes.

The Toor brothers run the winery and even do the tastings with guests. The tastings are by donation and are used to build and maintain a sports stadium in India.

They had reds, whites and roses to try out.

Some of my favourites were the:

2014 Gewurztraminer 

Floral, lychee, spicy flavours with a rose petal nose, smooth on the mid palate and a crisp, long finish. Pairs well with Asian dishes, white meats or great on its own.

2010 Mirage

Rich black currant, black cherry and plum aromas lead to flavours of spice and dark chocolate, with a beautifully long finish.

It was a good tasting and it was great to try a wine brand that I haven’t encountered before. Definitely make a stop here if you are close by. Burrowing Owl Winery is just a few minutes away.
