Each month we will be featuring our wine of the month and telling you why it is our choice. We’ll tell you which dish from our seasonal menu we would pair it with. We will also share a little of our wine knowledge with you so you can make informed choices when dining with us. If you want someone else to choose we are always happy to make wine and food pairing suggestions and can design a whole menu with accompanying wines for you. Alternatively just ask for a copy of our extensive wine list, there is something to suit all tastes and palates.
So let’s take a look as March’s featured wine:
Little Beauty Pinot Noir 2015 Marlborough, New Zealand
This month’s offer price is *£31.90 a bottle (plus VAT)
This wine comes from a little privately owned estate in Marlborough’s Southern Valleys. They are blessed with a unique micro-climate, which ensures excellent ripening conditions. It also means the wines differ slightly from the mainstream which is why we like them.
The team at Little Beauty is headed by former Cloudy Bay winemaker Evelyn Fraser and they have established a well earned reputation for producing elegant, refined and sophisticated wines. The wine making is modern, but there is more than a nod towards tradition. In ‘Little Beauty’ the best of new and the best of the old unite together seamlessly.
Pinot Noir is scented with notes of plum, red summer fruits, raspberry, red cherry, vanilla bean and smoke, the mouthfeel is velvety and rich, with great balance.
We would pair Little Beauty Pinot Noir with lamb from our spring menu. Specifically roast rack of spring lamb with ‘shepherd’s pie’ croquette, spring cabbage with nutmeg and cream, redcurrant and apple-mint jus.
