MERLOT – Luis Felipe Edwards Lot 18, Rapel Valley, Chile – by the glass or bottle. Bright ruby-red, this unoaked Merlot shows black and red cherry, spicy plum and blackcurrant all wrapped up in the velvety textured palate.
SHIRAZ – Short Mile Bay, South Eastern Australia – by the glass or bottle. Deep-coloured and full-bodied with lots of rich berry fruit on the palate and a pinch of pepper spice so typical of Shiraz
ZINFANDEL – Drifting Old Vine Lodi, California, USA – by the bottle. This Zinfandel is aged for 3 months in French Oak, developing flavours of sweet cherry, blueberry, and light plum aromas. Completed with a black pepper spice and a slight tobacco edge on a full, silky finish.
MALBEC – Los Intocables Black Malbec, San Juan, Chile – by the bottle. Using a modern take on ageing, this Malbec has been aged in North American bourbon barrel for 12 months. The grapes come from a careful selection of plots, with very low yield of bunches per plant. Distinctive aromas of red berries marked by notes of caramel and vanilla. On the palate, soft tannins give creaminess, volume and meatiness. The flavours of ripe caramelized fruit are perfectly amalgamated with the notes of smoke provided by the toasting of the wood, leaving a pleasant and persistent finish.
SAUVINGNON BLANC – Luis Felipe Edwards Lot 66, Rapel Valley, Chile – by the glass or bottle. A typical, zingy, fresh Sauvignon Blanc with lots of grassy, herbaceous aromas and a touch of lime sorbet, melon and passion fruit.
PINOT GRIGIO – Daciana, Banat, Romania – by the glass or bottle. The first records of viticulture in the Banat region date back from the period of the Roman invasion of Dacia, in the early 245 AD. The people here have not been satisfied to live on the glory of the past and have invested heavily in the last few years to transform tradition into outstanding wines. Opulent aromas of grapefruit and peach that follow through to the palate and combine with melon, green apples and citrus fruit.
CHARDONNAY – Tierra Unoaked Chardonnay, Central Valley, Chile – by the glass or bottle. A fine, elegant Chardonnay that is full of fresh, citrussy fruit flavours with a lively, crisp acidity. As the name indicates, the wine is unoaked: a popular option for many consumers who appreciate Chardonnay’s fruit character, without the distinctive spicy notes that appear on the palate of oak-aged wine.
SAUVINGNON BLANC – Waipara Hills Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough, New Zealand
– by the bottle. Made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc sourced from vineyards in both the Wairau and Awatere valleys of the Marlborough region. Settled juice is fermented with a range of yeasts at cool temperatures for about three weeks, a period of resting off the lees is followed by bottling. A generous and lifted style, showing powerful aromas of melon, nettle and snow pea, the palate bursts with fresh citrus, grapefruit and melon notes, the fruit carrying through to the aromatic finish.
WHITE ZINFANDEL – The Big Top, California, USA – by the glass or bottle. An off dry Zinfandel rosé packed with delicious strawberry fruits. Very easy drinking.
MALBEC ROSADO – Los Haroldos, Mendoza, Argentina – by the bottle. A stunning 100% Malbec Rosé. Bursting with juicy strawberries, cherries and raspberries in a youthful, easy drinking style.
PROSECCO – Galanti Extra Dry, Italy – by the glass or bottle. Shows the typical fruit spectrum of apple and pear with a hint of peach, followed by a fine, persistent, soft fizz.
