WINE LIST (Please preorder)
Cialdini Lambrusco £26 per bottle
Lambrusco, really? Yes it`s coming back into fashion and this is frothy fruity and fabulous. Ruby red in colour, with plenty of bright bubbles. On the nose it has a fresh, pronounced and very fine fruity scent. On the palate the wine is delicate, tangy and well-balanced, with pleasant refreshing acidity, floral notes and forest fruits on the finish. A really lovely alternative to prosecco or sparkling rose and a brilliant food match, especially canapes, mezze boards.
Billot Bergerac Sauvignon/Semillon - £18 per bottle
The passionate and innovative young winemaker Pascal Cuisset owns this beautiful Dordogne estate, south west of the town of Bergerac. Made from a blend of Sauvignon and Semillon matured `sur lie` to give extra body, his dry white Bergerac is full and fruity. It retains a crisp, zingy acidity with hints of pineapple and gooseberry and fantastic weight on the palate.
Marvelous White Chenin/Muscat/Viognier - £25 per bottle
A pioneering white wine blend, this fabulous and ‘Marvelous’ wine is beautifully balanced, with aromatic`s bursting out of the glass ! The Chenin Blanc, with Muscat and Viognier gives great levels of fruit and texture on the palate and a brilliant food wine! These South African guys seriously know what they are doing.
Casas Del Bosque Pinot Noir Reserva - £22 per bottle
A new wave Chilean Pinot Noir which is quite a profound experience for the money. The wine is aged for a total of 9 months in second use French oak barrels before being bottled with minimal filtration to retain as much flavou8r as possible. The nose exhibits lively notes of red cherry and plum. In the mouth notes of cinnamon and red apple are accompanied by just a hint of cumin backed up by fresh acidity and soft tannins. A great all rounder, with or with food.
Spice Route Chakalaka - £27 per bottle
A funky wine with aromas of smoky cloves and savoury notes. This opens up to beautiful plum and black cherries with hints of sweet oak spice. Medium bodied with well-integrated oak and fruit, this wine has a smooth tannin structure and lingering spice flavours. The wine matured individually in a combination of French and American oak for about 18 months before the blend was made. It’s a real crowd pleaser.
The event is made possible by generous donations and support by Paul & Victoria Power of the Hothouse Café/Powers Weybridge, the Medicine Garden, The Wine Reserve, Cobham and F. Conisbee Butchers in East Horsley.
