Welcome to this edition of the Restaurant 27 Wine List.
Sparkling wine sales have been showing steady growth over the past few years but, it is in
English Sparkling Wine that this growth has been the most pronounced. The category is truly booming with 3 million new vines planted in 2019 alone, it appears that quality grape growing in Southern England is perhaps one of the more fortunate side effects of global warming.
An hour’s drive from the restaurant is the home of Black Chalk, a superb, quality-focused family business. We list their Classic 2015, made in the same way as Champagne using the same 3 grape varieties, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir & Pinot Meunier, it is Hampshire & English quality at its very best.
For a delicious zesty, full flavoured white wine which partners food really well, perhaps consider Altano Branco. Originating high in the glorious Douro Valley it is a really vibrant blend of indigenous grape varieties produced in a very modern style by the Symington Family of Port fame.
Making for delicious red Summer drinking is a less widely seen 100% Cabernet Franc wine
from the fantastic Marc Bredif in Chinon. Now owned by the prestigious Domaines de Ladoucette,
it is delightfully full flavoured, with a distinctive Loire ‘edge’ to the palate.
Fuller bodied but just as drinkable is Terra d’Alter Alicante Bouschet, an intriguing red made by the highly acclaimed Peter Bright, an Aussie working his magic in Portugal’s Alto Alentejo region.
To finish the evening why not try ‘Sweet Raquel’, a lovely pudding wine from Torreon de Paredes in Chile’s beautiful Cachapoal Valley, and named in honour of the winery founder’s wife.
Late harvested Gewurztraminer & Sauvignon combine to give a beautifully balanced wine, rich in sweetness but with an underlying acidity that leaves the palate satiated but clean, well worth a try.
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.
