A drop of Italy – wines of the month

We are constantly updating our wine list to provide the best variety of local and Italian plonk. Every month we explore a new region.

April 2021

This month we travel with you to Argentina.

Argentinian wine started in 1853 with Mr. Michel Aimé Pouget, he imported many grapes in the Mendoza Region as it was suited for the climate, topography and geology. But it’s only in 1980 they started to become good quality. They are now one of the biggest producers of the world, with the Mendoza region now one of the 8 wine capitals of the world.

Cinco Sentidos reserve Torrontés 2020

Tasting notes:

A highly aromatic dry white wine with aromas of honeysuckle, lavender, geranium and rose petals. After, experience fruit notes with an end of elegant mouth feel, persistent and balanced.

We recommend paring with the Sorrento lemon prawn spaghetti.

Septima reserve Obra Malbec 2019

Tasing notes:

Malbec is now the most famous grape of Argentina. This wine is inky, medium bodied and dry with a strong taste and smell of dark fruits. There are notes of vanilla and chocolate from the French and American oaks.

We recommend paring with our Slowed cooked Lamb shank.
