For starters


PROSECCO MALIBRAN EXTRA DRY NV VENETO - ITALY. ARTISAN WINE. Off dry. 11% Alc (100% Prosecco)


Malibran is one of the Prosecco region’s great small producers. The wine has a delicacy and purity that truly beguiles with its textures of lemon sherbet and zest dancing on a smooth soft mousse. A fabulous and very drinkable sparkling wine.


GAVI DI GAVI DOCG 2009 MORGASSI PIEMON- TE - ITALY. ARTISAN WINE. 13.5% Alc (100% Cortese)


The new vintage from Morgassi is superb. The wine shows more poise and balance than ever with the cool lime and flinty aromas bursting through on the nose and the elegant mineral texture gracing the re- freshing palate. Truly lovely Italian white for any dish!


For mains


VERMENTINO DELLA SARDEGNA DOC 2009 CHERCHI - ITALY. ARTISAN WINE. 13.5% Alc (100% Vermentino) Vermentino is widely planted in Italy but in Sardinia it finds its true home with the perfect soils and climate. The resultant wine is fresh and full of sun- shine with fabulous crisp citrus and delicate tropical fruit with zippy acidity and minerals.


BARBERA 1212 07 CASTELLO DI CIGOGNOLA OLTREPO PAVESE - ITALY. ARTISAN WINE. 4% Alc (90% Barbera 10% Croatina)


Barbera has never been quite like this wine! It has huge rich black fruits, layers of cassis and ripe blackberry and a silky opulent texture. A very impressive wine and great for fillet steak!


For dessert


LO FLAPI PINOT GRIGIO VINO DI UVE STRAMATURE 05 VALLE D’AOSTA - ITALY. 15% Alc (100% Pinot Grigio)


A superb rare wine made from late harvest Pinot Grigio berries. The wine is golden in colour with a rich viscosity indicating the high alcohol and sugar level. The aromas range from blossom to honey, caramelised fruit and straw. A really unique wine, only 800 half bottles are made a year. This is beautiful dessert wine made elegant and moreish by the fresh acidity that balances the sweetness. Lovely with medium blue cheese.


RESPIRO DI VIGNA BARBERA VENDEMMIA TARDIVA 04 CA RUSSIN PIEMONTE – ITALY. 15% Alc (100% Barbera)


Produced in a small village in the Asti region of Langhe located on the hills between Nizza and Canelli. It has a brilliant vibrant red colour with a slightly orangey hue near the rim. Well balanced acidity and sweetness and ripe red and black fruits of dried and fresh damson. A beautiful and unique dessert wine for blue cheeses, chocolate torte or just on its own!
