France – The wine capital of the world.

France
Red

Dom Barrau Cabernet Franc
You have to be careful with Cabernet Franc. Some vineyards provide grapes often used as a filler in cheap wines. Some, but not many, understand how to make the best of the vines to produce a really good example. This is a really good example which you don’t see on many wine lists. A wine of real character, scented fruit twinned with an edgy woodland perfume. The palate is incredibly long and very rich, scrumptiously juicy fleshy flavours that are counterbalanced and intertwined with the savoury crunchy earthy character of Cabernet Franc.
Cote du Rhone Villages
This is a fine example of why this wine area is world famous You will fall in love with it. Immediately impressive this  wine reveals its class from the start. Typical red berry fruit on the nose underpinned by subtle oaky nuances. Flavours are densely packed, layer upon layer of primary red fruit are refined by smooth oaky subtleties bound up in a finely woven structure
Chateau Du Seguin Bordeaux Superior
Bordeaux Superior is an Appellation in itself. They are aged in oak for longer, picked from older vines and have a higher alcohol level. Taste to see what this does to the wine. Excellent quality Bordeaux with powerful ripe fruit, vanilla and spice.
Chateau St.Christophe St.Emilion Grand cru
Top quality St. Emilion. Ripe and plumy with good depth and concentration. The Merlot element allows pleasant early drinking. Lifes too short to drink cheap wine!
Chante Cigal Chateau-neuf-du-pape
Possibly the most famous wine in the world? Taste and see why. This wine has lots of warm red fruit and damson aromas, with cinnamon, spices and jam on the palate; then liquoricey richness and elegance to finish.

White

Terres Secretes Macon Villages
We love Chablis. However, this is twice as good at half the price! Amazing value for money. Beautiful clean crisp fruit and a long well balanced finish
Sancerre R.Nudet
For lovers of refined French wine.A fine concentrated Sauvignon Blanc. Zesty citrus and good mineral pungency. Full and rounded, a classy Sancerre.
Chablis Dom Bois D’Yver 1er Cru Montmains
Made with grapes from vines sited in the better area of the vineyard. When you don’t mind paying more for high quality you need to try this. Elegant and crisp with well balanced minerality. A wonderful wine to accompany any seafood.

Italy – We love Italian wines.

flag-italyRed

Allamanda Sangiovese
A soft and fruity red full of juicy mixed berry fruits. Made from the same grape variety used in Chianti but from the warmer heel of Italy.
Chanti Prunatelli
Wow! Here is striking lively fruit and a juicy, spicy rustic edge to this Italian classic.
Miopasso Nero D’Avola
This is a unique Sicilian grape which exudes quality and flavour. Big, rich, dark berry fruit flavours with a note of sweetness which comes from a small percentage of dried grapes in the blend.
Valpolicella Montresor
Big, rich, dark berry fruit flavours with a note of sweetness which comes from a small percentage of dried grapes in the blend.
Barolo Patrizzi
Fantastically flavoursome from 3yrs barrel ageing. Aromas of dried fruits and spice. Rich on the palate with damson, wild cherry and spice. A velvety but firm finish. Unashamedly expensive!

White

Ca’lunghetta Pinot Grigio
If you want more umph and refinement from your pinot then try this! A crisp, dry and refreshingly fruity wine, richer in style than most Pinot Grigios.
Miopasso Fiano
Another unique Sicilian grape. Yes, we love them! Lovely creamy palate of ripe white peach and pear. Lightly oaked with a clean, fresh finish.
Gavi La Battistina
It’s no longer a secret. This is an ever increasingly more popular variety. Ripe, rounded and rich with hints of citrus and tropical fruit.  A delicious, creamy Italian white, great by itself or try it with fish or chicken.

Spain – They sent the first wines to Chile, enough said!

Borsao Garnacha
Another wow! It would be hard to find a more highly praised, recognised and awarded wine than this Garnacha! Juicy bramble and cherry fruit and fresh redcurrants dominate this generous, easy drinking wine.
Pedero Monastrell
Another wine that is just a pleasure to drink. Consistently great quality. Ripe juicy and fruit focused with plum, cherry and strawberry. A touch of spice and long soft finish.
La Calzada Crianza Rioja
Younger brother of the Gran Reserva. 12 months in oak makes this a soft and rich Rioja. Well balanced with lots of flavour. Just lovely.
La Calzada Gran Reserva Rioja
Gran Reservers should be old – always! It rounds the corners. Aged for 30 months in oak giving a long, well rounded, complex structure. Rich fruit, hints of vanilla and spice with a supple finish.

White

La Calzada White Rioja
Some people think, and we can understand why, that White Rioja is a disappointing wine – this will change your mind. Floral aromas lead to a light, fruity and fresh white wine.

Argentina – Making wine for over 400 years. 42 million people can’t be wrong.

flag-argentinaRed

Nieto Malbec
They eat a lot of steak in Argentina. I will let you work it out for yourself! Full bodied with great concentration of vanilla, mocha, blackberries, sweet spices and clove. The palate is rich and warming with vanilla, more black fruit, plums and cherries, as well as leathery notes. The wine is vibrant and well structured, with fragrant tannins. A great wine with a fresh finish.

White

Trivento Tribu Viognier
Another grape variety that is becoming more well known for all the right reasons. Grown in the foothills of the Andes in Mendoza, Argentina.The wine is soft yet dry, with apricots, tropical fruit and honey flavours.

Chile – Possibly the most under rated wine producer, in our opinion. The earliest records show that they have been growing vines since 1554. Thats plenty of time to get it right don’t you think? Give the dearer ones a go – you will not be disapointed.

flag-chileRed

Maycas del Limari Cabernet Sauvignon Res Esp
Could this be one of the best wines that you will ever taste? Big blackcurrant and red berry fruits. Soft warm spice and balanced oak.

White

Los Gansos Gewurz
If we served curry, this would be the wine – we don’t but its still a great wine to go with strong flvours. Great as a shared bottle on its own. Elegant, defined, spicy fruit flavours make this Gewürztraminer an excellent, refreshing and stylish partner for aromatic dishes.
Maycas del Limari Chard Res Esp
Could this be one of the other best wines that you will ever taste? Ageing for 11 months in French oak and 5 months in the bottle before it’s released gives this wine a well balanced mix of fresh crisp fruit and smooth oak.

USA –Big equals better.

flag-usaRed

Big Top Zinfandel
What Californian red wine is all about. Big and fun. Aromas of  cracked black pepper and dark damson fruit. On the palate this wine is round and fleshy, beautifully balanced and packed full with robust red fruit flavours and a lick of oak.

False Bay Chenin Blanc
Are you in a green grocers or floris You decide. Beautiful floral aromas, ripe apple and citrus flavours with mineral characteristics.

Accomplice Shiraz
Medium bodied. Plum and berry flavours and a soft hint of oak lead to a lovely smooth wine. Great value!
Rude Mechanicals Priority Red
A small, independent and individual winery.Made from equal parts of Grenache and Carignan, This is a wine that reflects the rich , complex dark fruits and spices, sometimes rustic attributes of these varieties but also full of perfume and personality, giving it a youthful and lively edge. If this was from a classic French vineyard it would be twice the price.
Chocolate Box Barossa Valley GSM
Imagine what you want from a big bold Aussie red, and double it. Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro grapes are blended to perfection, creating dark cherry, rhubarb and soft spice with a beautiful long finish.
Passion has red lips – Some Young Punks

Squids Fist – Some Young Punks
A big grown up wine from a young winery who should not be making wine this good! Sangiovese and Shiraz grapple for supremacy in this bottle of wills. Sour cherries, plums and sweet spices lead to a light silky mouth feel, with firm tannins, raspberries and a pinch of black pepper.

Champagne Gruet Brut
When blind tasted, this wine was picked out over famous brands over double its cost! Delicious ‘House Champagne’, well aged, with fine bubbles, a soft palate and crisp finish. 007 should have been more adventurous!

Sweet / Desert

Late Harvest
To finish, why not try a glass of our delicious Chilean Late Harvest Sauvignon? Its golden honeyed nectar with spicy orange blossom flavours makes it the perfect pudding wine.
Monbazillac
Mmmm! A fabulous dessert wine, sweet and luscious  with a great backbone of fine acidity for a clean  finish. The nose is  fresh with classic botrytis marmalade and ripe nectarine. Flavours on the palate are richer, honey and toffee finishing with a twist of bitter orange zest.

Port

Krohn Ruby Port
A really nice port! Mature and versatile with a deep red colour and a concentration of fresh, plumy fruit aromas. The palate has plenty of lively cherry, more plum fruit and is rich and full with a soft finish.
Krohn LBV Port
An even better port! LBV port is a port which they say after “actually, this was good enough to be a vintage”. So it is matured in barrels not bottles. This means that it has no crust and does not need decanting before serving. Deep ruby colour with upfront aromas of black plums, spice and dried herbs, firm and evident tannins and a rich, long finish. The generous plumy characters, freshness and pure berry fruit characterise.
