Indian Wine: V A Reserve Collection

Vijay Amritraj is an Indian tennis legend. He played during the same era as Björn Borg, and he reached four Grand Slam quarterfinals. He even managed to beat Borg in the second round of the 1974 US Open, and he can brag about beating Jimmy Connors five times during his career. Now he has lent his name to a premium wine produced by Grover Zampa. It is called Vijay Amritraj Reserve Collection, and it is a red blend of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Viognier.

The vintage is 2014, and it is a well balanced, highly drinkable wine. There is plenty of upfront dark fruit, mainly blueberries and plumes. It is medium bodied with some pretty smooth tannins. It improves further with some air, so please decant it. Our bottle tasted even better on the second day. This I will happily buy again.
