Cellar selection

  • SHIRAZ ‘GRANGE’ PENFOLDS, BAROSSA ~ AUSTRALIA

    Dark opaque purple. Blueberry, a little cinnamon, cherry, other dark fruits, and a hint of liquorice on the nose. Big dark fruit, some cocoa, and black cherry on the palate. Very big and quite tasty.

  • CHAMPAGNES - CORDON ROUGE BRUT G.H.MUMM, CHAMPAGNE ~ FRANCE

    Light yellow colour. Aromas of apple and light yeast. Apple, minerals, and biscuit on the crisp medium-light bodied palate. Medium length finish. Edging towards the sweeter side of Brut.

  • ROSE’ VEUVE CLICQUOT PONSARDIN, CHAMPAGNE ~ FRANCE

    Toast and cream on the nose with a touch of cherry. Medium bodied palate with more cherry as it came across as a little tart, with creamy oak and a medium finish that left the mouth clean.

  • DOM PERIGNON ROSE’ MÖET ET CHANDON, CHAMPAGNE ~ FRANCE

    Light amber-pink in colour with a seamless combination of red berried fruit, brioche, cream and marzipan notes with a surprising saline element coming out on the back end. The mouthfeel here is just as striking as the flavours themselves – it’s very polished and glossy with a real lightness of touch and fantastic balance.

  • CUVEE PALMES D’OR ROSÉ NICHOLAS FEUILLATTE, CHAMPAGNE ~ FRANCE

    Very elegant champagne. Very stylish and nuanced flavours of bread crust and fruit.

  • DOM PERIGNON MÖET ET CHANDON, CHAMPAGNE ~ FRANCE

    Nutty, dark caramel, green apple and pumpernickel bread. A dark yeasty quality. Palate is really nice. Long finish with great balance and acidity.

  • LA GRANDE ANNEE BOLLINGER, CHAMPAGNE ~ FRANCE

    Pale straw colour with a hint of cappuccino. Excellent mouthfeel, delicate acidity with a very smooth fine mousse. Rich aromas of biscuits and brioche on the nose. Delivers concentrated, continually changing patisserie flavours of toast, caramel and shortbread biscuits that coat the mid-palate. Stays with a very long lingering finish.

  • LA GRANDE ANNEE BOLLINGER, CHAMPAGNE ~ FRANCE

    Fine mousse and lemon colour. Biscuit and yeast nose, with hints of citrus and honey. Great mouthfeel, perfect acidity, relatively full and discreet. Great potential and a great vintage to explore during the 10s.’

  • NOBLE CUVEE LANSON, CHAMPAGNE ~ FRANCE

    Surprisingly fresh on the nose, with just a buttery edge to the lemon-fresh fruit. A superb palate, again amazingly fresh, with apple and lemon flavours predominating, but with a honeyed, mealy richness in the background.

  • CUVEE DES ENCHANTELEURS ‘BRUT’ HENRIOT, CHAMPAGNE ~ FRANCE

    Lively, yet delicate sparkle. Aromas of baked apple and almonds, toast and butterscotch. Rich and supple fruit carries through on the palate with a long generous finish.

  • DESSERTS - TOKAJI ESZENCIA HETSZOLO, TOKAJ ~ HUNGARY 500ML

    Deep dark amber brown with a powerful nose of apricot, summer melons, and orange marmalade and dark molasses. Obviously sweet as all get out, but the balance is still there and the alcohol almost unnoticeable. The depth of flavours not just fruits but floral, nuts and berries, honey. It probably smells like a basket of gathered edibles in the height of summer.

  • RIESLING DE GRAINS NOBLES ‘CUVEE ANNE’

    D. Schlumberger, Alsace ~ France 500ml. This wine is refined and complex with consistent aromas of rose petals, tropical fruit and exotic spices. On the mouth the wine is rich and concentrated followed by a long finish. The slight acidity of the wine creates a balanced structure and will allow the wine to age gracefully for years.

  • RIESLING ICE WINE INNISKILLIN, NIAGARA ~ CANADA 375ML

    Aromas of apple blossoms, apricot with hint of cinnamon-raisin bread. On the palate, this beautifully rich dessert wine follows through nicely with mix of apricot, mango and a strong honeyed fig component. The overall finish has good length with tantalizing flashes of exotic fruit and spice.

  • VIDAL SPARKLING ICE WINE INNISKILLIN, NIAGARA ~ CANADA 375ML

    Aromas of nectarines and apricots dominate the nose, with a hint of lychee nut in the background. On the palate, this wine shows a very delicate but lively effervescence, which harmoniously balances the generous natural acidity.
