Wine Selection

House White Recommendations

Italy; Soledoro Rubicone Trebbiano - €17.95

From Emilia-Romagna on Italy’s east coast, this is a dry but fruity white with crisp apple and pear fruit, medium bodied this is a very refreshing style.

Food Match: Lends itself well to seafood pasta dishes, grilled flatfish, Caesar salad.

 

Chile; Karu Sauvignon Blanc - €20.95

This vibrant, herbaceous Sauvignon is made by Emiliana, one of Chile's most highly acclaimed producers. Everything that goes into this comes from estate grown vineyards and they have chosen high altitude, cool climate sites ensuring the crisp, fresh nature of the wine.

Food Match: Ultra versatile, this is great as an aperitif but will match seafood, salads, grilled fish and many chicken dishes.

 

Italy; Celso Pinot Grigio - €18.95

Hailing from Veneto, the heartland of Italian Pinot Grigio, Celso has everything that made Pinot Grigio so fashionable in the first place. Delicious ripe, white peachy and pear fruit and a soft palate kept refreshed by lively lemon zestiness.

Food Match: Ideal with light lunches, salads and pasta dishes.

House Red Recommendations

Italy; Soledoro Rubicone Sangiovese - €17.95

This is made from the famous grape of Chianti - Sangiovese - but here,on the warm east coast of Italy it produces soft, juicy reds. This wine is smooth and ripe with plenty of fruit.

Food Match: Pizza/Pasta dishes, chicken/pork dishes.

 

Chile; Karu Merlot - €20.95

From Emiliana's estate vineyards, this Merlot is soft, super-juicy and full of ripe plummy fruit and the kind of long full-flavoured finish you would expect from a wine twice its price!

Food Match: Drink on its own or match with hearty, feel good food.

 

Spain; Protocolo - €18.95

From the hands of one of Spain's greatest winemakers, Marcus Eguren, this 100% Tempranillo is like a richly, fruity version of Rioja. Great structure and great fruit, an all-round superb red.

Food Match: Very versatile from Italian to richer poultry dishes to fillet steak. Especially good with roast lamb.

Wines from around the world

White Wines

Argentina

Norton Torrontes - €19.95

Hugely aromatic, this is what Torrontes is all about; aromas of fresh peach and apricot burst out of the glass alongside floral notes of honeysuckle and rose petal. The palate is equally as impressive with its lively peachy fruit and clean, crisp nature.

Food Match: This style of wine works particularly well with aromatic, Asiatic cuisine

 

France

Eric Louis Sauvignon Blanc, Loire Valley - €24.95

Description: Great Sauvignon Blanc from vineyards just outside Sancerre and made by Sancerre grower Eric Louis. This wine offers just about everything a good Sancerre would; it is zesty, packed with fruit and mineral rich, just like its famous neighbor.

Food Match: Few wines can match seafood or fish dishes so well.

 

France

Eric Louis Sancerre, Loire Valley - €32.50

From Eric Louis vineyards this is classic Sancerre; full flavoured with classic grassy/herbal aromas and intense cool, citrus fruit. This has a deep mineral complexity that marks out the best wines in the region.

Food Match: Superb with richer fish dishes and roast poultry.

 

France

Cave de Lugny Chardonnay, Burgundy - €25.00

Description: Based in Mâcon-Lugny the Cave de Lugny make some of the best wine in the region. This cuvée is textbook southern White Burgundy; intense in flavour yet elegant, mineral rich and with a hint of honey on the finish.

Food Match: A superb wine for white meat dishes and great with fish.

 

New Zealand

Brightwater Sauvignon Blanc - €25.00

Description: Unusually for Marlborough, this is from a single estate situated in a cooler sub-region. This gives the wine a cooler profile, even a Sancerre like quality, but this is still unmistakably Marlborough. There are buckets of ripe fruit and great aromatics in this wine.

Food Match: Seafood, fish dishes and especially good with Cantonese and Thai Cuisine.

Prosecco

La Pieve Spago - Italy - €22.95

A great example of fruit-driven Frizzante Prosecco from top producers Mionetto. Made in a very approachable, easy to drink style with vibrant peach and pear fruit aromas and flavours.

Food Match: Ideal as an aperitif but a good match too for mildly spiced cuisine.

 

Mionetto Vivo Rosé - Italy - €28.95

Description: Fully sparkling, dry but fruity Rosé from this top drawer Veneto producer. Floral on the nose which hints at ripe strawberry and raspberry fruit. The palate delivers this vibrant red fruit character and the finish is long and refreshing.

Food Match: Great on its own but especially good with anything slightly spicy. Also very good for seared scallops or langoustines.

Wines from around the world

Red Wines

Argentina          

Norton Malbec - €19.95

Bodegas Norton is ranked among the top five Argentine producers. Now owned by Gernot Langes-Swarovski (of Swarovski Crystal) no expense is spared in the making of Norton wines. This, their best-selling Red, is a great plummy Malbec with loads of silky blueberry and mulberry fruit. 

Food Match: Such an easy wine to appreciate with its supple easy-drinking style, it is good on its own but has the structure to match chicken, pork and even lamb dishes.


Spain

Sierra Cantabria Selección - €24.95

Legendary Spanish winemaker Marcus Eguren’s Rioja gives everyone a chance to taste a wine from one of the finest names in Spain for a reasonable price. Silky smooth with juicy wild berry fruit and a nice touch of oak. A perfect example of modern, instantly delicious Rioja.

Food Match: With its six months in oak and rich fruit, this has the body and depth of a Crianza and is a perfect match for lamb and beef or more robust vegetarian dishes.


France

Rasteau Côtes du Rhône Rastillains - €22.95

Astonishing quality for this price. There are lashings of delicious ripe, wild berry fruit and a very smooth, polished palate. The Grenache component is from vines averaging 40+ years, grown in vineyards covered in large heat reflective gallettes (big flat pebbles) allowing the necessary ripeness for this sun-loving grape.

Food Match: Excellent with richer pasta dishes, chicken and pork - but will work well with red meat dishes too.


Italy

Volpetto Chianti - €20.95

Description: Modern fruit-driven Chianti. Cheap Chianti can be thin and weedy but this is the opposite; loads of fruit, nice weight and silky smooth texture.

Food Match: Of course excellent with tomato based Italian dishes, good for pork and lamb dishes too.


Chile

Rio Rosa Cabernet Sauvignon - €20.95

An outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon that is packed with black fruit flavours. This wine has great structure and is sensational with food. This Cabernet Sauvignon shows rich berry flavours, soft tannins and a palate of fruit and spice.

Food Match: A perfect match to steak and grilled red meats.  Will also compliment cheeses, especially brie and lighter varieties.

Champagne & Sparkling Wine

 G.H. Mumm Cordon Rouge - €75.00

The bubbles are rich on the palate, but never overpowering. The perfect balance is combined with a rounded, full vinosity. The mix of fresh fruit and caramel aromas give even more intensity to the finish. This is a subtly balanced wine with a remarkable capacity to linger in the mouth.

 

Campo Viejo Cava Brut Reserva - €35.00

This wine has a pale yellow color with golden hues. An elegant stream of bubbles rising to form a lively froth. Fresh, well balanced and persistent in the mouth with lingering, complex notes of fruit.
