Wine List:

Corsiero Nero 2016

Puglia, Italy 13% abv

£9.99

Made with Puglia's native Nero de Troia grape, Corsiero Nero is a sumptuous wine with layered wild blackberry, violet and subtle smoky vanilla characters, supported by supple tannins and a long complex finish.

Corsiero Nero is the perfect wine to enjoy with rich pasta dishes, game and mature cheeses.

 

Domaine la Sarabande 2015

Faugères, France 12% abv

£10.99

From deep in the heart of Languedoc, this organically produced wine has been a labour of love for winemakers Paul & Isla Gordon who bought the vineyard in 2009. Made mainly with Grenache, it has aromas of herbs and spice with blackberry and raspberry hints. Velvety, supple and rich in ripe bramble fruit flavours, it's a perfect match for roast meats or a spicy hotpot.

 

Newton Johnson Chardonnay 2016

Walker Bay, South Africa 13.5% abv

13.49

 Classy, elegant Chardonnay from a dynamic Cape estate near Hermanus in Walker Bay. It's a family affair with father, sons and wives involved. The Newton Johnson family have established themselves among South Africa's premium producers in just 20 years. This delicious Chardonnay demonstrates a commitment to quality and a talent for making stand-out wines of great value and finesse.  Serve lightly chilled with salmon steaks, lobster, scallops or chicken.

 

Campanula Pinot Grigio 2017

Dunátúl, Hungary 12.5% abv

£8.99

This terrific Pinot Grigio comes from an award winning cellar in the village of Etyek, 50 km from Budapest, and shows just what fantastic quality and value Hungary offers.  Hungary is, of course, famous for its regal sweet wine, Tokaj, but has many strings to its bow, thanks in part to a 600 year history of growing Italian grape varieties. This crisp, minerally Pinot Grigio has classic ripe pear and green apple character.

 

Enjoy as a glass any time or with lighter dishes.
