Wines We Pour

1. Ca' Di Rajo Traminer - 

Intense, wide, complex, with floral notes (eglantine and orange blossom) and hints of tropical fruit, citrus and apricot.
The taste is fresh, fine, aromatic, persistent, of good body and slightly mineral with excellent acid balance.; Very good aftertaste with strong citrus notes; persistent and mellow ending.

 

2. Sauvion Loire Valley Vouvray - Long established in the Loire Valley, Sauvion provides wine drinkers with a pleasurable, handcrafted wine experience. From Vouvray to Sancerre to Muscadet, the wines are elegant yet easy to drink. In other words, pure pleasure! University-trained oenologist Pierre-Jean Sauvion, the fourth generation of his family to be involved in winegrowing and winemaking, sees himself as a “pleasuremaker,” not a winemaker.

 

3. Indaba Merlot - Crafted in a fresh, clean style, this velvety Merlot offers lively, succulent flavors of cherry, dark berry and plum backed by subtle chocolate and herbal nuances and an elegant minerality.

 

4. Coppaia Toscana - has a nice ruby red color, with a fruity, rich and lingering nose of cherry and wild berry. It's soft on the palate, and shows great structure and body.

It's wonderfully soft, harmoniously balanced... and is a wonderful companion to many foods.
