Welcome to this edition of the Restaurant 27 Wine List.
Well, what an exciting 7 years!
Yes it’s seven years since Kevin and Sophie created Restaurant 27 and what an intense, challenging,rewarding and hugely enjoyable time that has proved to be. The passion and desire from the Kitchen brigade is as great today as it was on day 1 and is beautifully matched by the low-key, relaxed professionalism of the Front of House team. The result of this seamless teamwork continues to develop and improve and, I am glad to say continues to be acknowledged, with 27 recently being awarded ‘Hampshire Restaurant of the Year’ by the readers of Hampshire Life magazine.
For myself, as wine supplier, the challenge is to source and list a diverse range of wines that not only meets your taste, matches the style of the food offering and provides interest but that also evolves naturally as the cuisine at 27 has done over the years. To that end, this list sees both a change in presentation style which I feel better reflects the menu today and also includes a number of exciting new wines. Wines such as the deliciously rich Footprint Chenin-Semillon from South Africa, the zingy, intense, slightly mad, Green Fish Verdejo from Spain, Forgeron Dubois’s smooth, elegant Merlot from the Languedoc or Peter Bright’s terrific & rare Alicante Bouschet from Portugal’s Alentejo region. There are others but space does not allow me to mention them all.
If you would like to, please ask one of the Front of House team to highlight the other new wines or for their recommendations on matching your wine selection to your menu choice. We work together, tasting new 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.
