Please note: the vintages on our wines may vary depending on availability.

The Fizz Corner


Winston Churchill once said : “I always drink Champagne.... in victory I deserve it, and in defeat I need it!”. There is a lot of truth in this, sparkling wines are not only for celebration or aperitif but they are very often a great match with food.

Dry, crisp aromatic white wines


These wines tend to be young, fresh with a pronounced acidity and very often made from grape varieties such as Sauvignon Blanc or Riesling. However there are a multitude of other less famously named varieties which provide a welcome change and some interesting drinking. These wines tend to be great served as aperitif or are perfect with seafood in general. Why? Well a very simple rule to remember is that salt in food reduces the sensation of acidity in the wine, hence why some dry whites tend to taste fuller flavour when drunk with food.

Soft white with more intense flavours


This section isn’t meant to be anything middle of the road, quite the opposite in fact. Most whites made from un-oaked Chardonnay, Mediterranean varieties from France, Spain and Italy, Pinot Gris etc…. all have that extra depth of flavour due to the extra sun shine these grapes get all year round. Some of these wines are aged in oak barrel, to give the wine harmony rather than oak taste.

Price = 175ml glass; 250ml glass; bottle

£40

Full flavoured & matured dry white


The first thing to mention is that matured doesn’t necessarily mean oldest but when the wine has reached its full potential. Most of these wines are often great with poultry or dishes with creamy sauces rather than reds. They could also compliment delicately spicy dishes and would certainly go better than any other style of white with any meat if for example you don’t like red wines.

Price = 175ml glass; 250ml glass; bottle

The refreshing rosé selection


These are listed from light, crisp flavours to richer, intense red berry fruit flavours. The lighter ones are akin to white wines and will match fish dishes with stronger flavours such as tomato, olives and herbs. The fuller more intense rose will be refreshing in the summer for those who feel red might be too much, but enjoy fuller flavoured foods.

Preignes Le Veux, France (12.5% abv)
£5.95 £7.95 £26

Lively, bright soft fruity red


The reds in this section are by definition easy to drink, because they are light in tannin, have bags of fruit and a judicious amount of acidity to balance their natural youthfulness. Wines made in a simpler way, some great red from the Loire and Beaujolais amongst others. Some of these can be served slightly cool in the summer, do ask and we will advise you.

Smooth red wines with harmony and balance


Quite diverse here, perhaps the best way to describe these is that they have reached maturity and are showing at their best. We have wines made from Southern French varieties such as Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre, but also some deliciously balanced wines from Pinot noir as well as mature cabernet-merlot blend.

Full bodied, spicy reds


These wines often come from older vines (the older they are, the more concentrated the juice is) but the criteria in us selecting these wines is that we look for balance, depth of flavour and intensity. They are often from warmer climates or come from grape varieties that have high concentration of tannin such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, and Monastrell. One point to take into account is that proteins (especially in red meat) tend to smooth out the tannin in the wine giving an overall impression of balance. Hence the saying “I’ll have a nice strong red with my steak”.
