wine flight

Premium Collection Amontillado “Tio Diego” Pago de Macharnudo, NV, Valdespino Andalucia
100% Palomino (asparagus)
Very generous, the wine will reveal oxidized aromas as well as walnut fragrances, and toffee undertones.
The flavours are intertwined with dried fruit scents, a hint of leather and bread.

Etna Rosso “Circeno”, Terrazze dell’Etna, Sicilia, 2014, Italy
100% Nerello Mascalese (seabass)
This very complex wine develops sulfuric notes from the volcano soil, candied citrus undertones, cherry and mulberry fragrances with a touch of marzipan to bring sweetness while the acidity balances the body.

Givry 1er Cru “Le Clos du Gras Long” 2020, France
100% Pinot noir (chicken)
The warm vintage has offered a very opulent wine. With generous aromas of blackcurrant, to discover are a complex creamy texture, underwood fragrances and a discreet tannic finish.

or

Château Musar, Gaston Hochar, Beqaa, Lebanon, 2017
Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault, Carignan (lamb)
Very unique, cherry, mulberry and plum aromas are to be expected. The vintage is complex, with liquorice undertones, hints of tea tree and soft tannins. There is a beautiful balance between the tannins and the acidity.
 

“Signature” Straw Wine, Mullineux, Paarl, 2021, South Africa
100% Chenin blanc (soufflé)
The wine offers delicious tropical fruits aromas such as passion fruit and mango.
On the palate will be discovered hints of sweet spices like the nutmeg and a delicate balance between the acidity and the sweetness.

or

“Kabir”Moscato di Pantelleria, Donnafugata, Sicilia, 2022, Italy
100% Zibbibo (Muscat d’Alexandire) (raspberry)
The wine is very refreshing, herbal, and fruity. Apricots and almonds undertones are to be expected along an opulent herbal fragrance. Noticeable are verbena and rosemary aromas, but also orange zest flavours.
