Wine

WHITE

Cape Heights Viognier, South Africa, 2016, 14.5% (175ml glass £4.90 / Bottle £18.90)

This sharp, cool and stylish unoaked Viognier is from the Western Cape of South Africa with ripe flavours of peaches, cream, jasmine and white spice. Cracking!

Murphy’s Chardonnay, Australia, 2017. 13% (175ml glass £4.90 / Bottle £18.90)

A beautifully clean, unoaked Chardonnay from the Big Rivers area on the borders between South Australia, Victoria and New South Wales. The warm mild weather helped create this near perfect Chardonnay, with tropical fruits and a long refreshing citrusy finish. I like this a lot!

L’Artisan Colombard / Vermentino, France, 11.5% (175ml glass £5.70 / Bottle £21.00)

If you are seeking an alternative to Sauvignon Blanc or Pino Grigio then look no further. The Vermentino grape variety originates from Italy but France now has the largest plantings and the Colombard grape variety is used in Cognac production. The combination delivers a racy, zesty and very refreshing wine. You dancing?

Inaba Chenin Blanc, South Africa, Western Cape, 2016, 13% (Bottle £26.50)

Alive and kicking with honeyed pear, honeydew melon and kept in check with the sharpness of red apple. Spot on!

Quara Torrontes, Cafayete Valley, Argentina, 2016, 12.5% (Bottle £28.50)

We’ve stocked an earlier vintage at Café 52 for years and we will continue to stock the 2016 for years to come! The Torrontes variety is a natural field crossing with the Crolla and Muskat grape variety. The vineyards are literally In the heavens at an altitude of 1800 metres and all these factors create a powerful and aromatic wine loaded with ripe nectarines, rose petals, orange and honey. Drink me now!

Domaine l’Orangerie Gewrztraminer, France, 2016, 13% (Bottle £25.50)

An abundance of fabulous fruit; think tropical rambutan and lychees with hints of rosehip! A lovely medium bodied wine. Simple pleasures!

Domiaine Mas Belles Eaux, Grenache blanc, France 2016, 14% (32.00)

Big and tasty fulsome appealing sunny white. Slightly creamy and textural with rich white fruits.

Cantine Riondo Prosecco Spago Nero, Italy, 10.5% (£21.50)

The perfect drink with your favorite tunes blasting from the stereo! This is not your usual overly fizzy commercial tipple. This is super light and very, very drinkable!!

RED

 

Pe Tinto, Portugal, 2016, 13% (175ml glass £4.90 / Bottle £18.90)

Created by an Australian wine maker in the Alentejo region of Portugal, Pe Tinto is just the ticket with its brambles and black currants in abundance. A must!

Ca’di Ponti Nero D’Avola, Sicily, Italy, 2016, 14% (175ml glass £5.30 / Bottle £19.50)

Volcanic soils and intense sunshine whacking out bundles of black cherries, smoke and plums! Yes please!

Les Oliviers Grenache Noir, Langueoc, France, 2016, 13.5% (175ml glass £5.60 / Bottle £21.00)

Hitting the nail right on the head this 100% Grenache from the South of France has nuances of strawberries and red cherries. Its silky soft and splendidly spicy. Don’t just sit there, order a bottle!

Rioja Vega Tempranillo, Rioja, Spain, 2016, 13.5% (Bottle £23.00)

I love Spain, I really do. And I really love Rioja. This is one of the wines I had the pleasure of drinking in May 2017 with a group of wonderful people. This Tinto is young, fresh, ripe, loaded with blackcurrant and very easy to drink!

Los Haroldos Chacabuco Malbec, Mendoza, Argentina, 2016, 13% (Bottle £26.50)

Created by the highly respected fine wine producer, the Falasco family in San Martin, East of Mendoza. This is a serious Malbec packed with plums, black cherries, zipped up warmly with a touch of cloves. Delicious!!

Santa Alba Carmenere, Curico, Chilli, 2016, 13% (Bottle £25.00)

With a distinguished history originating in Bordeaux, The Chileans have embraced the Carmenere grape variety that’s characteristics are not dissimilar to Merlot. This is intense, dark, mysterious even, with notes of chocolate, vanilla and bucket loads of brambles. Belter!

Chȃteau Carbonac, Corbiѐres France 2016, 13% (£32.00)

With deep red reflections an intense bouquet distinguished by notes of dark fruit and spices
On the pallet this wine produces wonderful expressions, fantastic!

Rioja Vega Tempranillo Colleccion, Rioja, Spain, 2015, 14% (£35.00)

This is outstanding. This is a multi layered red of heavenly proportions. This is a celebration of quality, class, skill, love and passion that will take you on a trance like journey. You will not feel in the least bit guilty when you knock your yoga classes on the head and invest in this instead!
And breath…..
