White Wine

Orballo Albariño 2016 £12.00

Icon-Grape-webAlbariño

 

Icon-Origin-webRías Baixas, Galicia, Spain

 

Icon-Price-webOrballo has a fresh stone fruit and honey fragrance. A long palate which is rich, textured and dry. The aromas come through in flavour with an added luscious touch of ripe melon and fresh citrus.

Icon-Maker-webThe tiny Albariño berries are grown on high Pergola trellises ensuring maximum ventilation and the best chance against the Galician moisture. After fermentation, ageing on the lees lends texture to this white.

Icon-Pairing-webComing from a land where seafood is plentiful, you can pair this with Spanish specialities like anchovies or calamari or simply opt for trad fish and chips!

 

Jean-Luc Colombo Les Abeilles Blanc 2015 £12

Icon-Grape-webClairette, Roussanne, Grenache, Viognier.

 

Icon-Origin-webRhône Valley, France

 

Icon-Price-webA vibrant and structured blend. White blossom and peachy aromatics give way to a soft-textured, juicy white with a surprisingly fresh palate.

Icon-Maker-webNamed after the bees ‘Les Abeilles’ and the crucial role they play in the pollination of the vineyard and a reflection of Jean-Luc’s commitment to respecting the vineyard environment.

Icon-Pairing-webThis white won’t shy away from flavour, lemon and thyme chicken with a well-dressed salad.

 

 

Rosé Wine

Cantine Paolini Rosato 2016 £10.50

Icon-Grape-webNero d’Avola and Merlot

 

Icon-Origin-webSicily, Italy

 

Icon-Price-webA sumptuous deep pink rosé. If you are a fan of the paler shades of rosé don’t let this put you off… The nose is delicate and raspberry tinged, the palate is dry, ripe, soft and incredibly easy.

Icon-Maker-webThe dynamic cooperative Cantine Paolini are masters of the indigenous Nero d’Avola, the most important red wine grape on the island. Bold and fruit-driven it blends harmoniously with soft, juicy Merlot. After a short maceration (juice and skin contact), the juice takes up the deep fruit colour.

Icon-Pairing-webAperitif or Antipasti!

Emiliana Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc 2015 £7.00 (Organic)

Icon-Grape-webSauvignon Blanc and a touch of Gewurztraminer

 

Icon-Origin-webCasablanca Valley, Chile

Red Wine

 

Novas Gran Reserva Pinot Noir 2016 £11.00 (Organic)

Icon-Grape-webPinot Noir

 

Icon-Origin-webCasablanca Valley, Chile

 

Icon-Price-webBright cherry and raspberry flavours with a hint of savoury and herbal notes. This organic Pinot Noir is soft with fresh, vibrant acidity, it subtly grips the palate and has a long and elegant finish.

Icon-Maker-webThe cooler climate of the Casablanca Valley is the perfect home for heat-sensitive varietals such as Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. The grapes take time to ripen and develop rich flavours whilst retaining aromatics.
