Louis Bernard Tavel Rose

Deep pink in colour with hints of red, elegant bouquet of red fruits, plums, and spices. The plate is soft yet fresh and generous.

This lovely rosé hailing from Rhône’s singular rosé-only appellation is great on its own and also shows wonderful with food from the Summer Grill.

Citadelle Reserve Gin

This impressively complex barrel aged gin pours a pale gold colour. Aromatics of herbaceous notes, dried spices, and coconut shell, tobacco, and orange flower. The second nose brings out notes of juniper berry and green tea. The palate has notable richness and initially shows high tones of juniper and toasted ginger before settling into a lingering vanilla and cassia bark spice. An unusual gin with a broad range of flavors that shows best served neat.

Terredora Ex Cinere Resurgo Fiano di Avellino

This wine made with a grape called “Fiano”, a fascinating Southern Italian white with a richer, almost waxy texture that’s known to be age worthy.

This 100% Fiano from the family run Terredora vineyards is Light straw yellow color, elegant and complex bouquet on the nose with nice ripe flowery and fruity aromas: pear, apricot, citrus, toasted hazelnut, acacia, honey and a pleasant mineral note. On the palate it is dry, elegant, with a lively acidity, a nice structure and balance. Lovely sipper and wonderful with grilled seafood.
