Wine and Spirits Taste Notes

CHAMPAGNE & SPARKLING

Taittinger Brut Reserve NV

A careful blend of twenty five different ‘Crus’ and aging of between 3 and 4 years go into making this delicate and elegant Champagne.

 

Sparkling Rosé

Codorniu Pinot Noir Brut Rosé

Unique and stylish this very posh Rosé is made exclusively from the Pinot Noir grape giving the flavour of delicious ripe summer fruits.

 

THE WHITE WINES

Parée Sauvignon 2009

Vin de Pays des Côtes de Gascogne

Gooseberry, grapefruit and exotic fruit flavours abound.

 

Parée Chardonnay 2008/09

Vin de Pays des Côtes de Gascogne

Universally loved, pear and apple aromas cascade into the glass.

 

Mezzora Pinot Grigio Garganega 2009/10

Produced from grapes grown in the beautiful hills north of Verona, flavours of pears and summer peaches, gives a dry, fresh and stylish wine.

 

Grant Burge ‘5 Generations’ Sauvignon Blanc 2009/10

Fruit from premium vineyards around the Barossa valley make this lovely wine, its strong varietal characters of tropical fruits, melon and lemon citrus are prominent on the nose yet give way to a rich full flavoured subtle and vibrant clean finish.

 

Gavi di Gavi ‘Vigneti Lugarara’ 2009

This top estate covers 30 hectares in the heart of Piemonte. The wines are of the best quality - the Cortese grapes are gently pressed, they see no oak thus creating a wine that has a great concentration of flavours and balanced acidity, and this is certainly one of the best that Italy produces.

 

Sancerre 2009 Clos des Bouffants

Dry, fresh and well balanced, this full flavoured attractive wine is a constant favourite - a superb compliment to any fish dish.

 

 

ROSÉ

Parée Rosé 2009/10

Vin de Pays des Côtes de Gascogne

Summer in a bottle, delicious wild berries and strawberries.

 

Sutter Home White Zinfandel ‘Blush’ 2009

Stylish medium dry wine from one of the better 'Napa Valley’ producers, known as a ‘blush’ wine having been left in contact with the red grape skins, medium dry in style – a delicious aperitif.


AND THE REDS

Parée Merlot 2009 Vin de Pays d’Oc

Mouth-watering flavour of ripe cherries and blackcurrants.

 

Boonaburra Shiraz Cabernet 2009

Aromas of vanilla, cherry and ripe plums, this classic Australian red has the flavours of summer berries and just a hint of oak.

 

Amalaya de Colome Malbec 2008/09

Intense aromas of black fruits, the flavour of red berries and ripe black cherry, soft and smooth with a hint of vanilla from new French oak barrels – this is a delicious wine from the world’s highest winery in the Calchaqui Valley, Argentina.

 

Rioja El Coto ‘Crianza’ 2007

A quality oak aged wine from Northern Spain’s best Bodega; it is distinctive with the flavours of ripe red berries and a hint of vanilla coming from having spent some time in new oak casks.

 

Châteauneuf du Pape 2008

Domaine du Vieux Lazaret

One of the Rhône’s finest wines; many different grape varieties go to make this rich complex yet mellow wine and this example is from one of the top producers Monsieur Jérôme Quiot.

 

Château Haut Gazeau 2005/06

Lussac St Emilion

Coming from a family run property this Merlot dominated wine is elegantly structured and well balanced – drinking well now.

 

Barolo 2003/05 ‘Le Albe’

The top Italian red from Piemonte, known as the ‘king’ of Italian red wines.  Ripe and forward, classic elegant style with delicate floral and summer fruit scents, spicy ripe tannins and wonderful balance.

 

Fleurie 2009 Domaine de la Bouronière

One of the most popular of the ten individual Beaujolais villages, this medium bodied wine has an intense raspberry fruit flavour and delivers excellent quality, try it slightly chilled.

The perfect end… from one of the few remaining family owned port lodges
