wine flight

Château Oumsiyat, Bekaa Valley, 'Obeidy', 2018, Lebanon (mackerel)
Made from predominantly Obeidy, an indigenous Lebanese white variety,
this wine has exotic, mineral flavours with hints of peach
through to a lovely, whistle clean salty finish.

Fiano Puglia IGT Segreto di Bianca, Cuturi, 2019, Italy (scallop)
A traditional winery but with all the benefits of modernity Masseria Cuturi make a delicious
white wine. A distinctly aromatic nose with hints of citrus fruits.
A fully rounded, balanced flavour on the palate with a lovely, crisp finish.

Grenache, Spice Route, Swartland, 2016, South Africa (lamb)
This Grenache has a vibrant ruby colour. On the nose, it has aromas of red berry fruit and
subtle pepper notes along with cardamom and spice. This elegantly built wine benefits from a
lightness which does not hinder its complexity. Fine tannins and good acidity will help this wine
evolve well over the next few years in bottle.
As a single varietal, the Grenache is juicy and savoury with lovely tannins.

Moscato d’Asti, Nivole, Michele Chiarlo, Piemonte, 2020, Italy (pavlova)
A particular expression of Moscato, not produced by over-ripened grapes
but from normally ripened grapes instead.
The fermentation is then stopped by lowering the temperature, creating a natural sweet wine,
low in alcohol content, with a rich variety of fresh fruit flavours.
