Welcome to this edition of the Restaurant 27 Wine List.
“A host of delights? – well he would say that wouldn’t he” That could be said of this incarnation of the Wine List but…I genuinely think there are some new delights on offer here.
To kick off, and what better way to do so than fizz, we have a pair of local, English Sparkling wines from Hampshire-based family business Black Chalk. Their ‘Classic’ cuvee 2015, made from the celebrated trio of Champagne grape varieties, is a delightful expression of the tremendous quality there is to be found now ‘in our own back yard’. Fruit driven with a delicious crisp acidity
it could be the perfect start to your meal here @ Restaurant 27?
Another very worthy addition, in the classic style, is a Vouvray from the excellent Guy Saget whose mastery of Chenin Blanc gives us a wonderful off-dry, richly flavoured wine.
From North & South America we have two more newcomers, a silky smooth Zinfandel from, perhaps the best site in the San Francisco Bay region, the Livermore valley and a powerful,
dark Cabernet Sauvignon from the beautiful Cachapoal valley in Chile. Matured in French oak for 12 months this is a full-bodied wine with black fruits, ripe figs, plums and tobacco.
As a complete contrast and coming back to the English connection of earlier is a new dessert wine, Katie Jones Muscat. Katie moved from England to work in Tuchan at the heart of the Fitou winemaking area and as the saying goes, loved it so much she bought it! Well, not all of it but a gradually growing group of very old, neglected, small vineyards. Bringing them back to life Katie has produced a delicious range of wines and her Muscat is a beautifully balanced ‘doux’ or medium sweet wine with hints of citrus flavour, a soft perfume and a lovely clean acidity.
If you would like to, please ask one of the Front of House team for any further advice on the wine list or for their recommendations on matching your wine selection to your menu choice. We work together, tasting the wines against the Menu to ensure there is always a suggestion available to you if you are unsure, or perhaps just want to try something different.
