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.

Clos Culombu,Etienne Suzzoni, Vin de Corse, 2019, France (quail)
A gorgeous purple-red in colour. On the nose, hints of cranberry, cherry and raspberry with notes of liquorice and sweet spice. On the palate, medium-bodied with a rich texture
and balanced tannins leading to a spicy finish.

Entre-deux-Mers, Chateau de Fontenille, Bordeaux, 2020, France (john dory)
Light gold colour. On the nose it has an interesting and immediate pureness, with aromas of citrus fruit and white peaches. The entry is sharp and ample at the same time.
On the palate is well balanced and the finale is lightly peppery, with a nice lingering finish.

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.

or

Chateau de Vignelaure, Coteau d’Aix en Provence, 2008, France (squab)
Expressive nose blending black cherry and notes of cocoa. Lovely stuffing, a very well-balanced wine with more of the same flavoursome aromatics.
Savoury fullness, persistency and elegance across the palate.

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.

or

Mas Amiel, “Maury”100% Grenache, Vintage Reserve, 2014, France (chocolate)
The colour is very dark with purple glints. The nose has prune, a very fruity concentration, some spices and minty hints. Full bodied mouth of ripe red fruits, prunes in syrup, dry wood, fresh aromas of star anise and menthol. Sweet but so fresh. Lengthy finish. Great with a dessert.
