Welcome to this edition of the Restaurant 27 Wine List.
As an introduction to this Winter version of the List my attention is immediately drawn to the Red Wine selection and I have added a couple of really interesting wines for the cooler months but first….
I should highlight a couple of excellent Whites that make a new entrance. From Castilla comes a really vibrant blend of Verdejo & Sauvignon in the form of Doña Victorina, a new-wave style wine from an ultra-modern winery in parched, Central Spain. How they make wine like this in an area that has so little rain is truly amazing. Amazing is also the perfect adjective for Oliver Zeter’s delicious Nussriegel Riesling, a single vineyard wine which has everything Pfalz Riesling is famed for, acidity, ripe fruit, length & complexity. A great match for Kevin’s cooking style and also a super aperitif.
New comers to the red selection include the delicious, mid-weight Cosmina Pinot Noir from Romania, positively bursting full of ripe red fruit flavours. As a contrast to that is a wine utilising a rather unusual grape variety, Tannat. Originally hailing from the SW French region of Madiran, Tannat was taken to Uruguay by Basque emigres and then spread in small amounts to Peru & Brazil but this example comes from very limited plantings in Mendoza, Argentina established by the renowned winemaker Susana Balbo. Rich aromas of mature red fruits, plum and spice lead you to an elegant and intense wine with a sweet and balanced finish. Powerful but not overpowering.
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 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.
