Shirazsounds like a wine designed for India. The very name is reminiscent of sharab,and Shiraz in Persia was famous for wines that were probably drunk by winelovers like the Emperor Babur. The British writer Hugh Johnson in The Story ofWine noted that the city, located near the ancient capital of Persepolis,“lying 5,000 miles above sea level, yet only 100 miles from the sea, hadthe essential combination of factors necessary to be a successful vineyard:reasonable growing conditions and relatively good access to amarket.” Johnson notes references to Shiraz wine being suppliedto the caliphs of Baghdad as far back as the year 800 CE, but then formalrecords lapse for centuries until the 17th century when European merchants inIndia became a new market. “What is more remarkable is that by 1677 thewine was transported in bottles, wrapped in straw and packed in cases, to goswaying down to the Gulf Coast on mule back. There is scarcely any earlierinstance of the regular use of bottles for shipping wine.” In time othertypes of wine like Madeira were made for the Indian market, but Shiraz may havebeen the first.
Wines Of India It seems so appropriate then that Shiraz has been thereal success of the nascent Indian wine industry. When new wineries startproducing in places like Nashik and Narayangaon, it was the whites like CheninBlanc and Sauvignon Blanc, or the sparkling wines that drew immediate attention.They were quick to bring to market, cool and refreshing to drink and seemedperfect for our hot climate.
