GROVER RESERVE ART COLLECTION CHENIN BLANC White Wine

Image
I recently got  to drink this Chenin Blanc White Wine from the Grover Reserve Collection 2017 vintage and I was pleasantly surprised by how good it was.

Chenin Blanc is a versatile white-wine grape variety that has been cultivated in France for nearly 1300 years and recently being cultivated by Grover Zampa Vineyards in Southern India .

This wine is from the Grover Art Collection range and bears the artwork of famous Bengali Artist Sanjay Bhattacharjee who is well known for his use of vivid colours to convey depth and perspective just like the wine the bottle holds ! So that is another fact that can make this a collector's item or great for gifting.

Image
MG Motors India's Hector is the First Internet Car or Smart Car to be launched in June 2019 in India under the mid size SUV segment and so I had every reason to be thrilled when I was invited to witness the  sneak preview of the MG Hector at J.W. Marriott Hotel in New Delhi. But I cannot I plunge into the various features of the Hector without first telling you about the way the auditorium was readied for the unveiling.

The whole place was made up to simulate the inside of the Hector replete with a steering wheel and the Head Unit in the centre, the sun roof at the ceiling and the windscreen and side windows . Watch the video below to experience it yourself.
