Steven Spurrier of Bride Valley English Sparkling wines and Piero Masi (formerly of Isole e Olena) are collaborating with Fratelli owners Kapil and Gaurav Sekhri to launch M/S wines. From high altitude vineyards in Maharashta, their Akluj Chardonnay/Sauvignon Blanc, Akluj Sangiovese Rosé and Akluj Sangiovese/Cabernet Franc/Shiraz all fulfil Steven Spurrier’s aim of producing a trio that are ‘fresh, vibrant, unoaked and balanced’.
Managing director David Gleave MW is excited by these new Indian additions to the Liberty Wines portfolio: ‘We are always hungry for new adventures in the wine world, especially when they have such quality focussed people behind them as Piero Masi and Steven Spurrier. The small, highly specialist range from M/S is perfect for bolder, more adventurous restaurateurs and retailers with a genuine interest in what India’s ancient soils and Europe’s modern winemakers can produce’.
The new Indian wines available through Liberty Wines are as follows:
M/S Chardonnay/Sauvignon Blanc 2017 (stelvin)
M/S Sangiovese/Cabernet Franc/Shiraz (stelvin)
M/S Sangiovese Rosé (stelvin)
