wine flight

Aquilae Grillo Bio, Terre Siciliane, 2020, Italy (scallop)
Grillo is a traditional Sicilian grape that is ideally suited to the island’s warmth and makes wines of
elegance and body. The potential has always been there and now with winemakers of flair and expertise it can be realised. A clean, citrusy nose with a touch of hazelnuts.
A well balanced wine, it has a fullness on the palate and then a delicious vibrant finish.

Ruppertsberger, Pfalz, Riesling Trocken, 2020, Germany (duck egg)
Situated on chalk rich slopes, this vineyard is situated in one of the `grosses gewachs`,
which roughly equates to a grand cru. Low yielding old vines produce a
dry opulent wine with silky peach perfumed fruit and excellent acidity.
Delicate elderflower flavours with ripe pear lead to a crisp limey palate.

Aguaribay, Malbec, Vista Flores Baron Edmond de Rothschild, 2018, Argentina (venison)
Backed by wine royalty (the Rothschild family), this estate shows that Malbec can be made with real sophistication and finesse. Notes of plum and ripe black cherry combine with deep dark chocolate and vanilla. A seriously satisfying glass of wine.

Georgas Family, Aged Savatiano, 2010, Greece (plum cake)
Medium copper colour, a light and juicy sweet wine, with nuts and dried fruit on the nose, and a complex palate with baked orange and peach, and a long sweet aftertaste.
