    75cl / 12.7%

    Clement Lavallee Sauvignon de St Bris Les Copains d'Abord 2020

    When it comes to white wine, most people associate the region of Burgundy with the mighty Chardonnay, but in this small region of Saint Bris, Sauvignon Blanc is the hero of the hour. On the nose you find baked hay, fennel seed, cumin and wet stones. The palate has a wonderfully round texture with notes of yellow plum and green pepper.

  • The Hilt Estate Chardonnay 2018

    75cl / 13.5%

    The Hilt Estate Chardonnay 2018

    This is definitely a new cult winery in the making with many of its wines already on allocation. Based in the Santa Rita Hills the estate wines come from plots in the southwestern corner of the estate. The Chardonnay has the classic soft orchard fruit notes of California with hints of white peach and apricot. The palate gives way to delicate white flowers, frangipane and hint of clementine. This is a wine that will open and develop in the glass - perfect for a seafood risotto.

  • Vallisto Blanco de Pieles 2021 Orange Wine

    75cl / 13%

    Vallisto Blanco de Pieles 2021 Orange Wine

    This is a partnership between two winemakers who are making wines from the high altitude vineyards of the Cafayate Valley. The winery is named after the local people of the area and it holds tradition and innovation in equal measure. This wine is made by leaving the white Torrontes grapes in contact with the skins to produce what is called an orange wine. It has lovely notes of orange blossom, dried apricot and ginger. The palate has a hint of tannin but still retains a lovely freshness with a dollop of orange marmalade on the finish. A great beginners' orange wine.

  • En Vrac Domaine Bohn NV

    75cl / 12.5%

    En Vrac Domaine Bohn NV

    The area of Reichsfeld has been producing some of the finest wines of Alsace since the 12th century and the Bohns have got three generations worth of knowledge when it comes to this land. They are passionate about the biodiversity of the land and work naturally in the winery. This is their ‘fun’ wine which is a blend of Riesling and Sylvaner. It is a great wine to start your journey into skin contact, natural wines. On the nose a hint of pea flowers, apricot and pear. The palate is very mineral and the schist soil that the grapes are grown on really comes through with a little grip of tannin on the finish. This is wine to go with any Asian dish.

  • Las Estelas Leticia Cabernet Cabernet 2021

    Las Estelas Leticia Cabernet Cabernet 2021

    Estela Perinetti comes from a family of wine makers and after working for the Catena family she has returned to her roots and now manages the family estate Las Estelas where she is fast becoming one to watch on the Argentinian wine scene. This is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. The wine shouts black juicy fruits, blackcurrant leaf, rosemary and a hint of blackcurrant blossom.

  • Giant Steps Light Dry Red Pinot Noir Shiraz 2021

    75cl / 13.5%

    Giant Steps Light Dry Red Pinot Noir Shiraz 2021

    While Pinot Noir and Syrah grapes are an unusual combination, they have worked well in this Australian red wine – the Syrah brings a juicy raspberry note with sweet spices and the Pinot Noir offers black cherries, strawberry roll ups and freshness. This wine is lighter than expected on the palate and the fruit is more restrained and savoury than the nose would suggest. Try serving this chilled and pairing it with light game or rich fish dishes.
