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.

Gamay, Levin, Loire Valley, 2018, France (sweetbreads)
Matured in three-year-old barrels from Haut Brion (Pessac Leognan). Black cherry and plum fruit characters are animated by spice, star anise, violets and rose petals, the long savoury, textured palate is beautifully balance by the integrated oak and natural tannins.

Gouffier'parGouffier', Bourgogne Aligoté, 2019, France (halibut)
A charmingly crisp and refreshing wine with vibrant citrus fruit complemented by a mouth-watering saline note. Beautifully textured, with great purity of fruit and delicate oak spice through to a long, cleansing finish. Fermentation took place with selected yeast in old French oak at 20°C.
The wine was matured on the lees for 12 months in 228 and 450 litre barrels, with malolactic conversion taking place in the spring.

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.

or

Pinot Noir Alto Adige DOC Patricia, Girlan, 2017, Italy (duck)
Pinot Noir, a complex grape variety, always benefits from a cooler climate typified by the Alto Adige region in northern Italy. A characteristic Pinot Noir nose of strawberries and fruit is followed by a broad warmth of texture and grip on the palate with a lovely soft finish.

Weegmüller, 'Von 14 Zeilen', Pfalz, Rieslaner Auslese, 2019, Germany (strawberries)
Enticing aromas of dried apricots and clementine combine with caramel notes. An intense Rieslaner with a firm acidity and a perfectly balanced sweetness on the palate, finishing on a creamy note. This sweet wine has been made from botrytised Rieslaner grapes, which have been late harvested and then fermented in 100% stainless steel at approximately 16°C in order to preserve the fresh and fruity aromas.

or

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.
