Before I venture into the tasting, I am tempted to share a few wine facts first.
Excessive consumption regularly can lead to Alcohol dependence,Liver Cirrhosis, Increased risk of Depression and weight gain.
MORE WINE FACTS
Wine is an alcoholic drink made by crushing grapes and then fermenting the extract without adding sugars, acids, enzymes or water to it during the process of fermentation.
The final taste of wine depends on the delicacy of the techniques used by wine makers and needless to say also the variety of the grapes.Wine making involves the process of harvesting the seasoned and matured grapes,since “crushing” sounds a brutal word in context of something as delicate as wine, so I shall instead call it “juicing”, juicing is then followed up by fermentation, clarification, ageing and bottling.
Wines can be broadly categorized in 5 varieties – Red, White, Rose, Sparkling and Orange based on the external appearance, these further have different flavor profiles depending upon the grapes used and methodology of wine making.The Sula Riesling that I shall review is a white wine.

I have tasted wines from various parts of the world but I am yet to develop a 'taste' for it 😀 I although love sparkling wines 😀
Yes Sparkling wines are another favourite !
What else do you need when you have a glass full of good wine!! The flavor of green apple is amazing
I agree – Great is the fortune of he who possesses a good bottle, a good book and a good friend!
I have no taste for wine so never knew so much about it. Your post is quite informative. Great facts and review Preeti 🙂
It has been a love and hate journey and I am enjoying it.Thank you for your lovely words of appreciation !
Heard a lot about this place, should go and try once. Great pictures Preetiji, I'm sure you would have had loads of fun !
There are only certain wines that I really like. I can't get into them all.
I love wine tasting. I went to a festival once with friends and found some private vineyards we really liked. You have a lot of great information here. Thanks for sharing!
I appreciate your informative post. We live in "wine country" in Watkins Glen New York. Although I am not a wine person myself, many in my family enjoy their wine.
Rieslings are such yummy wines! These look like some good ones! I love wine tasting!
Its really cost effective and a must one to be tasted after going through this review.
This sounds so yummy! I'm usually a hit or miss with Riesling so I definitely want to try this one.
I have learnt that it is difficult to generalise with wines.So the same brand may produce a great wine one year and not so great another year depending upon the crop and weather.
Yes, a lot of us do think that wine is an expensive indulgence but I have come across many pocket friendly ones that taste great.
Thank you – I too loved wine tastings!
Wow – lucky you to live in a wine country!
That is so true, some just grow on you with their particular taste and balance of flavors.
I would love to go to a private vineyard too someday!
Why not Atul!Life is short and let us enjoy and explore as much as we can.
Riesling wine is my favorite, it pairs with good curries.
I agree, it goes very well with yellow curries.Have you tried the Sula Riesling ?
I love the review although i’ve not tried Sula Riesling but i’m a great fan of Sula Seco you should try it Preeti
Thank you for the heads up Richa!I will defitely give Sula Seco a try.
I guess it takes time to develop liking for wine. I am not too fond of it but, but wine tasting experience looks appealing.
I have never tried Sula Riesling,after your review will try this too. BTW I am a wine lover too
I'm yet to develop this taste and liking. Despite knowing the benefits of red wine (in moderation), I'm awaiting a day when I'll love it, lol. Sula Riesling sounds a good choice for wine lovers.
I am not quite an alcohol person, but once in a while I do love wine. When I had visited France I had tasted a lot of them n of course they have many health benefits.
Ye,it is an acquired taste and of course there is a wine for all palates.
To be honest, I did not love it as much but at that price it was not bad either.
Surprising , because your extensive travel must have exposed to some of the best wines in the world, but then again it is an acquired taste.
Great to know that you tasted french wine too 🙂
This was definitely an interesting read.
I have negligible knowledge on this topic ao I thoroughly enjoyed reading ur post and learned many things here
Hey Sarah,I am so glad that you loved my post.Thank you for appreciating !
I had Sula Chenin Blanc 2018 last night. The wine should never leave you with a drowsy feeling next morning. Then its for you. Sula does fall in the category of my choices of wines. Lovely post.
