Wine Menu

Sparkling

Champagne is produced in the Champagne region of France. A second fermentation takes place in the bottle. In South Africa we call it Methode Cap Classique. These wines are perfect for celebrations & will complement your whole meal.

Chardonnay

Usually wooded, an oaked Chardonnay is usually associated with caramel, citrus, yeasty, buttery & honey flavours; complements rich creamy dishes. An unwooded Chardonnay is fresher with citrus on the palate.

Rosé

A classic grape from Bordeaux in France. Medium to full bodied: often with flavours of chocolate, berry & spice. Well suited to red meat dishes.

Merlot

Either a blend of red & white grapes, or red grapes that have had very little skin
contact. Excellent with most meals, or just as an aperitif. Perfect in summer!

Cabernet Sauvignon

Tobacco, cedar & blackcurrant overtones: this well known grape variety is full-bodied, rich & powerful. Excellent with red meat!

Red Varietals

Sauvignon Blanc

These wines tend to be fresh, crisp & dry; with mineral or fruity characteristics. When wooded, they are called Blanc Fume, which adds good complexity to an already fine wine. A Sauvignon Blanc will complement most seafood & white meat dishes.
