They also had a lovely display table to show the ingredients of each wine which is a lovely touch.

St Hugo Cabernet Sauvignon

New Zealand

Brancott Estate Letter Series ‘T’ Marlborough Pinot Noir


Brancott Estate Letter Series ‘B’ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

La Rioja, Spain

Ysios Reserva

California, USA

Kenwood Jack London Cabernet Sauvignon



My personal favorite is the Ysios Reserva which has hits of red fruit such as cherries and raspberries, followed by elegant toast and toffee nuances alongside hints of tabacco and cacao. The aroma is complex and elegant.
