PINOT GRIGIO 2017
Bivio, IGT delle Venezie, Italy
Light straw colour. Fine, elegant, clean and intense aromas. Dry to taste with a pleasing green apple aftertaste. A lively, easy-drinking white.
VINHO VERDE ‘Este’, 2017
Ponte da Barca – NW Portugal
Deliciously fresh and zesty white from the far north west of Portugal. The nose is floral and mineral with notes of grapefruit and orange zest. The palate is light and clean – off dry with citrus notes and a slight refreshing spritz on the tongue
CHARDONNAY ‘Whistling Duck’ 2017
Calabria Family Wines, Griffith, New South Wales, Australia
A fresh, vibrant Chardonnay with aromas of tropical and citrus fruit. The palate is rounded and well-balanced with lemon zest and stone fruit flavours.
POUILLY FUMÉ ‘Villa Paulus’ 2017
Domaine Masson-Blondelet, Loire, France
With terrific balance and depth, and the elegance and the smoky richness that only Pouilly-Fumé, of all Sauvignon Blancs, can achieve.
RIOJA BLANCO ‘Hacienda Lopez de Haro’ 2016/17
Bodega Classica, Rioja Alta, Spain
A truly modern style of unoaked white Rioja, offering the best of both worlds: full, ripe apple and peach fruit overlaid with the clean, crisp texture for which the Viura grape is so well known. A truly versatile match for a wide variety of dishes.
ST VERAN, “En Pommard”, 2016
Domaine des Maillettes, Maconnais, Burgundy, France
Stylistically this represents a sort of halfway house between Macon Blanc and Pouilly Fuissé. This has the floral quality of a Macon Blanc but with greater body and extract. Classic Maconnais Chardonnay, pure & elegant, at its best!
MUSCADET DE SEVRE ET MAINE Sur Lie 2017
Domaine de la Bretonnière, Loire, France
If only all Muscadet tasted this good! Bone dry, but packed with delicious citrus fruit flavours.
LES TERRASSES SAUVIGNON/GRENACHE BLANC 2017
Les Terrasses, IGP Ardèche, France
A fresh, clean and fruity white from the Cevennes mountains
SOL DEL ORO SAUVIGNON BLANC
Valle Central, Chile
CARDONE PINOT GRIGIO
FORMA DE ARTE, 2015/16
Quinta do Casal Monteiro, Tejo, Portugal
Portugal’s answer to Bordeaux. Made on the whole from Port grapes Touriga Nacional with a dash of classic varietals Merlot and Tempranillo. From the trendy Tejo region near Lisbon.
Lopez de Haro, Bodega Classica, Rioja – Spain
A deliciously fresh and vibrant Tempranillo – plenty of delicious, soft, ripe fruit and classic vanilla notes with a lovely long finish.
Cornellana Estate, Rapel Valley, Chile
Rich, deep and plummy with hints of chocolate on the nose. It is easy to see why Chile has become a spiritual home for Merlot.
PINOT NOIR/TOURIGA NACIONAL 2016
Terra de Touros, Tejo – Portugal
Juicy and approachable blend from central Portugal with bright cherry and berry fruit flavours, soft tannins and a fresh finish.
MERLOT- SYRAH ‘Les Terrasses’ 2017
Les Vignerons Ardéchois, Ardèche, France
A soft, rounded and fruity red from long-established vineyards in the foothills of the Cevennes mountains, between the Ardèche and La Baume rivers. Deep-coloured with a bouquet of red cherries, this is well -balanced and very approachable with an emphasis on ripeness and ‘crunchy’ fruit.
COTES DU RHONE, 2015 [Organic & Biodynamic]
Domaine Roche-Audran, Southern Rhône, France
Intensely fleshy, generous and full-bodied, with a silky texture and packed with mulberry spice and damson fruit. Winemaker Vincent Rochette is a leading light in this Rhone region.
ALTO DE MAYO MALBEC
SOL DEL ORO MERLOT
Valle Central, Chile
CRÉMANT DE BOURGOGNE NV
Cave de Lugny, Burgundy, France
Light and fresh, this ‘Methode Traditionelle’ has a persistent, lively mousse with wonderful, fresh apple and brioche aromas and flavours.
PROSECCO SPUMANTE “Porte Nova”
Veneto – Italy
Delicately fruity fizz with a mass of tiny bubbles and classic notes of apples, pears and almond blossom.
CHAMPAGNE GREMILLET Brut Sélection NV
Aube, Champagne, France
An extremely elegant, Pinot dominated Champagne, resulting in a wine which is quite creamy in texture with a lovely depth of biscuity fruit
LA PIEVE PROSECCO DOC TREVISO
