Wine Maker's Selection

Message from the Winemaker –
Time is expressed in The WMS by the character of vintage and a personality that is highly defined as terrior, which epitomize geography, geology and climate bestow upon a vineyard that is best expressed in the mouth-feel, as a balance of power, finesse, tannin, structure and texture. WMS is concocted to reward your patience with long cellaring, but will still provide great pleasure in its youth.

THE REDS

 
  • Wine Maker’s Selection
The inception of WINE MAKER’s SELECTION resolves to a single goal of producing an extraordinary wine sans any compromise, as to the vision of our founder “Shambhavi Hingorani”, spear-headed by “Andrea Valentinuzzi” who amalgamates intuition and technical acumen with his dual perspective of viticulturist and a winemaker. Low yields from the 10 year old vines endorse utmost quality fruit that are hand-harvested and berry-sorted prior vinification & MLF, under the supervision of our wine-maker. After about 12 months in the barrel, the wine is bottled and further receives an additional 06 months of bottle ageing before being released, which amounts to its signature character. The WMS consists of estate’s top 5% produce numbered at only 999 bottles of the elixir, made from Sangiovese, Shiraz & Cabernet Sauvignon that is carefully nurtured in the hands of Andrea Valentinuzzi, imbibing the Super-Tuscan philosophy.
