WINEMAKER Diane Gounel & Benjamin Vendange

REGION :  Roussette de Savoie, France

GRAPE : Altesse 100%

VINTAGE : 2021

ABV : 14%

NOTES : Vegan

The owners of Domaine Vendange started bottling their own wines in 2015 but the vineyards have been in the family for much, much longer. With 10 hectares on glacial moraines, they show huge respect for tradition and the terroir they’ve been gifted. Rich soils and perfect climate give the perfect foundations for a great wine celebrating the Savoie. Subtle brioche takes you first then complex blossom notes with some spice and flint before a textured, livepalate of pea and citrus. It’s deceptively intense but very balanced. It’s fresh too and for those unfamiliar with the name Altesse, the grape is also known as roussette but think of riesling, pinot gris notes. Pairing wise, it can be used the same. Strong aromatic dishes but things with a good garlic lead, bit of sweetness and a kick of spice will take advantage of the acidity and strong aromas of the wine.

The Andeluna winery is a real statement of mountain wines. Based at the highest possible point of the Andes they could be exposing the vines to surreal moon light at night, inspiring their name. Based in a building that looks like an ancient fortress, they invest heavily to showcase the best of Argentine wine by recruiting some of the best winemakers in the continent. This rose is refreshing and intense. Spicy and herbal top notes with strong floral aromas are contrasted delicately with pepper and basil. It’s smooth and silky with bright acidity but super juicy too with a spicy finish. Such a confident new world rose that is flexible and can work with herbal, salty and spicy dishes alike. For our palate, we like to use it with our allepy or mappas keralan style dishes that accentuate the background heat but can put it up against a madras just as well.

 


WINEMAKER : Samantha Bailey

REGION : Beaujolais, France

GRAPE : Gamay 100%

VINTAGE : 2020

ABV : 13.5%

NOTES : Vegan

Saint Amour is known as the most romantic of the Beaujolais Cru and we love a good gamay at the restaurant, so what better to put out for a February offering! The Bataillard family who own the vineyard are cemented in the northerly Beaujolais Crus and own plots all over the region and understand the terroir as well as anybody. The wine itself is fabulously balanced between forward fruit aromas of wild strawberries and berries, great structure and subtle backbone of liquorice and pepper. It’s smooth and silky but with a complex and lasting finish. Fantastic Beaujolais that’s lack of chunky tannins will sit wonderfully with richer indian dishes where the sauce offer a deep fruit beneath the spice while also sitting comfortably with a buttery Makhni.
