Light in colour, refreshing, and crisp and with aromas of limes, grapefruits and lemons making this well balanced wine very easy to drink.


ORGANIC, Dominio de la Fuente Verdejo, Spain

A crisp, aromatic white wine, showing great purity of aromas. Bright, pale straw yellow, with intense, fresh notes of grass, fennel and white pepper.


Bantry Bay Chenin Blanc, South Africa

An aromatic wine with hints of tropical and citrus fruit on the nose and palate.


Fathom’s Sauvignon Blanc, New Zealand

Light and refreshing, this wine from New Zealand has ripe citrus fruits on the palate and an elegant, lingering finish.


Mâcon Villages, France

Fresh, clean and fruity style with subtle green apple and pear flavours with a pleasant minerally finish.



Red Wines

Michel Servin Rouge

Supple and inviting, this wine blends the soft and jammy raspberry fruit of ripe. Grenache with the firming influences of Carignan’s blackberry flavours and robust tannin.


Vina Carrasco Merlot, Chile

Offers good concentration and depth of fruit, with a soft and plummy texture, and hints of vanilla.


Baron de Baussac Carigan Vieilles Vingnes, Vin de Pays de L’Herault, France

Deep and inky red in colour, the wine is crammed with black cherry fruit, lifted by subtle vanilla aromas from a touch of oak ageing. Bold, meaty tannins provide satisfying texture and length.


Aires Andinos Malbec, Argentina

Deep ruby coloured with smokey black fruits of cassis, blackberry & spice.


Marques de Postulado Rioja

A harmonious balance between sweet spice and black fruits of the forest. This is a smooth, velvety Rioja.

Rose Wine

Torre Alta Pinot Grigio Rosé, Italy

This wine shows why rose is so popular. Beautiful soft strawberry flavours with floral notes with a refreshing zing on the palate.


Circus Zinfandel, Italy

A fantastic example of an off-dry, easy drinking wine full of summer fruit flavours with a hint of sweetness.


Sparkling Wine & Champagne

Prosecco Villa Vincenta, Italy

This is a simply fabulous Prosecco with an abundance of golden apple and pear flavours.


Corte Alta Pink Prosecco, Italy

fresh and harmonious, displaying plenty of red apple and strawberry flavours. A nice balance of ripe red fruits.


Nicolas Feuillatte NV, Champagne, France

A light, fresh and fruity Champagne with fine discreet bubbles and subtle overtones of apples, pears and citrus fruits.


Œil de Perdrix, Pink Champagne, France

Meaning ‘eye of the partridge’, this pale salmon pink rose Champagne exhibits enticing complexity. Delicate in style, but with a perfect weight of fruit. A perfect aperitif.


Veuve Cliquot Brut NV, Champagne

Veuve Cliquot ages their non-vintage for almost twice the required time, resulting in a superb marriage of freshness and power, with rich fruit and a mouth-filling mousse.
