These are wines that are very special to me and are the wines that I love drinking and enjoying in our restaurants now they’re back open. – Charlie Stein
Select a 6 or a 12 bottle mixed case of the following wines
CHENIN BLANC ‘SECATEURS’ AA BADENHORST FAMILY WINES, SWARTLAND, SOUTH AFRICA 2019
Adi is a total a legend in the Swartland, his ‘Secateurs’ Chenin Blanc is the gateway wine into the amazing new wave of South African wine. The wine totally over-delivers on flavour packed full of crystalline apricot and pineapple fruit.
ALVARINHO, ADEGA DE MONÇÃO, VINHO VERDE, PORTUGAL 2018
I visited Vinho Verde last year and these wines are amazing with seafood! Made from the same grape as Albariño but in a much zippier style. Crisp, fresh and light in body, floral nose and stone fruit on the palate.
SAUVIGNON BLANC, GABRIELSKLOOF, BOT RIVER, SOUTH AFRICA 2019
I always think that good South African Sauvignon Blanc taste somewhere between the Loire and New Zealand Sauvignons, in other words an arresting acidity coupled with plenty of fruit.
RICK STEIN’S WHITE BURGUNDY, MACON, FRANCE 2018
This nutty, buttery and complex wine is fleshy and ripe, but with a wonderful citrus freshness and a touch of oak. It’s a fresh, thirst-quenching celebration for people who love the world’s best chardonnays
PINOT NOIR, JAMES BRYANT HILL ESTATE, CALIFORNIA, USA 2016
How is it that Californian Pinot is just so pleasurable? I want to use the words opulent, easy and rounded.
BELLA FIORE, TENUTA FIOREBELLI, VENETO, ITALY 2016
Made in similar way to Valpolicella Amarone where they dry the grapes before fermenting. This results in a really velvety rich red with lots of ripe cherry fruit it is very soft and moreish.
