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.

11. Villa Blanche Chardonnay 2015£6.75£8.75£26
Pays d’Oc, France (13%)
A stunning award-winning Chardonnay from the Languedoc. Floral and apple aromas with lovely texture in the mouth and a full satisfying finish.

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.

27. Pouilly Fumá 2014 Domaine Pierre Marchand£38
France (12.5%)
A crisp, fresh Sauvignon from an excellent small producer. Gooseberry and citrus notes with hints of characteristic smoke and mineral.

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.

28. Nostros Chardonnay Gran Reserva 2014£6.25£8.50£25
Casablanca Valley, Chile (14% abv)

33. Corton Blanc Grand Cru, Domaine Maillard et Fils 2007£85
Burgundy, France (13% abv)

The refreshing Rose 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.

35. White Zinfandel Big Top 2014£6.00£8.00£24
California, United States of America (10% abv)

37. Chemin de Provence Rose 2014£5.75£7.75£23
Coteaux D'aix en Provence, France (12% abv)

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.

38. Domaine Bergon Merlot 2015 £4.95£6.75£20
Pays d’Oc, France (12.5%)
Dry and full flavoured with smooth tannins. Aromas of cherries and flavours of black berries and vanilla.

Rioja, Spain (13.5%)
A blend of 80% Tempranillo and 20% Garnacha from Bodegas Franco-Espanolas which dates back to 1890. Twelve months ageing in American oak gives a smooth, mature wine with good balance of fruit and spice and a long elegant finish.

41. The Opportunist Shiraz, 2014£6.25£8.35£25
Barossa, Australia (13.5% abv)
Lots of ripe, generous red berry fruit with a ripe blackcurrant finish. Easy drinking warm Barossa Shiraz.

42. The Squids Fist Sangiovese Shiraz, 2014£38
Made by Young Australian Winemaker of the Year Col McBride. A blend of McLaren Vale Shiraz and Barossa-sourced Sangiovese giving cherries, plums and sweet spices with a smooth generous mouth feel. A hint of black pepper and spice on the finish.

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.

43. Mont Rocher Carignan Vieilles Vignes 2014£22

47. Chianti Classico Geggiano Pontignano, 2012£33
Tuscany, Italy (13%abv)
An elegant Chianti Classico made from Sangiovese and Canaiolo grapes. A fine well balanced wine with generous fruit balanced by fine tannins and great length.

49. One Man Band, Iona, 2009£40
Elgin, South Africa (14% abv)
A blend of Syrah (80%) Cabernet (10%) and Merlot, Petit Verdot, Mouvedre and Viognier you would expect this wine to pack a punch - and that it does however the cool climate freshness and firm tannins keeps this silky and smooth. A must try.

50. Meinert Synchronicity 2009 (cabernet sauvignon-merlot-pinotage)£45
Devon Valley, Stellenbosch (14% abv)
This is what they call in South Africa, a Cape blend, try it as an alternative to a Bordeaux.

52. Aloxe-Corton Premier Cru, 2010£64
Cotes D'or, France (13% abv)
A superb Burgundy from the small 11 hectare family estate in the Cotes D'Or. Elegant and complex with subtle fruit, balancing acidity and smooth tannins.

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".

Argentina (14% abv)
