1 x Antech Cuvee Réserve Brut NV
Mauzac, Chenin, Chardonnay - 12%
Blanquette de Limoux AOP - France
The traditional method of making sparkling wine was used in Limoux long before it reached Champagne. So, it makes sense that Antech produce this sparkling wine with all the confidence and flair of the originators. It is pale gold with aromas of spring flowers, and fresh fruit flavour.
1 x Jose Pariente
Verdejo - 13%
This white wine is bold, fresh and aromatic with ripe citrus acidity and a lovely refreshing finish. Meticulous winemaking and viticulture make this one of Spain's top verdes wines. Decanter Magazine describes this wine as "Very pure, tense and penetrating; a wine of remarkable clarity softened by a round freshness of ripe green fruits
1 x Domaine des Terres Dorées
Chardonnay - 12%
Beaujolais AOC - France
"This ruthlessly selected, hand-harvested Chardonnay from southern Beaujolais has succulence like St Aubin, with apricot and white peach notes, a creamy, nutty mid-palate and a decently crisp finish. A smart and compelling wine." Tomás Clancy, The Sunday Business Post
1 x Domaine De La Treille Fleurie
Gamay - 13%
Fleurie AOC - France
"Fleurie is a division of the Beaujolais region, and this is what you hope for when buying this wine. Vibrant black cherry and raspberry." Martin Moran (MW), The Sunday Times
1 x Château Fongaban
Merlot, Cabernet Franc - 14.5%
Puisseguin Saint-Emilion AOC - France
"Delicious spiced plums supported by ripe tannins and peppery finish. Full-bodied enough to match with a curried lamb and green peppers." Liam Campbell, The Irish Independent
1 x Quinta do Crasto LBV Port
Tinta Barroca, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz,
Touriga Nacional - 14.5%
Douro DOC - Portugal
"Velvety textured black pastille palate expressing an authentic local accent. A bitter chocolate finish hides the alcohol." Liam Campbell, The Irish Independent
