Charles Heidseick Brut Reserve Champagne
The wine that has swept the board in the wine awards for the last 5 years: structured, complex and balanced, with foaming mousse, intense flavour and a long, complex biscuity finish.
Albarino Reserve, Garzon, Uruguay
Wonderful wine from Uruguays premier winery,this is intense on the nose with peach and citrus aromas. The freshness and minerality on the mid-palate is superb, ably supported by a remarkable acidity which frames the juicy fruit on the crisp finish.
Soave La Rocca, Pieropan
Single vineyard Gargenega, rich, spicy, long and complex. One of Italys great wines, the greatest expression of Soave and the benchmark for the appelation.
Mercurey 2019, Domaine Garnerot, Burgundy
This wine is a deep garnet in colour. The nose is intense with aromas of blackberry and hints of spice and cedar. It is powerful on the palate, with flavours of black fruits and soft spices that fill the mouth, beautifully balanced by elegant tannins that linger on the finish.
Rioja Gran Reserva 2016 Bodegas Lan
Made from a blend of Tempranillo, Mazuelo and Graciano grapes, this wine undergoes a meticulous aging process of at least two years in oak barrels and three years in the bottle. The result is a rich, full-bodied wine with deep, dark fruit flavours and a long, smooth finish. The complex aromas of leather, tobacco, and vanilla intermingle with hints of spice and earthy notes. This wine is perfect for special occasions or pairing with hearty meat dishes.
Ferreira, Dona Antonia 10YO Tawny Port
This is filled to the brim with rich dried fruit and spice flavors, including apricot and mango, with vibrant white chocolate and hazelnut notes. The finish is sumptuous.
