The New World is expanding. A wine from China picked up a sizeable gong at the International Wine Awards last week, and Indian wines have hit the UK high street.
We had an Indian wine in the shop last year and it was pretty undrinkable so we were intrigued when Waitrose became the first of the UK supermarkets to stock two: Ritu Voignier and a Shiraz/Syrah with the awful name of Zampa.
The latter was on offer (£8.49) so we got a bottle and drove to India to try it.
On the label it claims the wine is "crafted to reveal your inner being," so cameraman wisely kept the toilet paper in the fridge.
