Wine list

Champagne Salon 2006

It has a rich, fruity flavor reminiscent of well-matured grapes and tastes like citrus fruits blended with white pepper, matured Chinese quince, quicklime, and bread-like yeast.
Enjoy the complesity of the refreshing aromas and flavors from the 2006 vintage wine.

Yealands Estate Single Vineyard, Awatere Valley, Marlborough 2016

One of the countries most renowned for its Sauvignon Blanc grapes is New Zealand. The Marlborough region is particularly popular, where Yealands Estate, the producer of this wine can be found. The Yealands house, one of the largest in scale and owned by an individual, is known for its continuous sensitivity toward the environment. Nuances of grapefruit, passion fruit and green notes of tomato leaves choreograph the wine's sensation of coolness. Whilst a very fruity flavor is its trademark, the taste remains dry from the first attack to the after note. A good marriage with salads with tart dressings and fresh, lighthearted cuisine.

Château d'Armailhac, Pauillac 2012

Château d'Armailhac in the village of Pauillac, owned by 1er Cru maison Château Mouton Rothschild, boasts Cinquièmes (5th) Cru classification which has been bestowed on only 60 chateaus in the region. This château is renowned for the sublime quality of its wine that even exceeds the 5th Cru status thanks to the technology of Mouton Rothschild that has been infused into this wine. The aroma of cassis, flavors of oak and licorice are pleasantly integrated into the wine's body of cabernet sauvignon. With nuances of fresh mint, silky tannins, and condensed fruitiness, this wine offers you a long-lasting elegance. An excellent match with grilled red meat cuisine that brings out the inherent richness of the fat and lean parts, such as beef roti and grilled lamb.

Japanese Wine Craftspeople

Here is an introduction to a couple of wines made by Japanese overseas.

Chateau Igai Takaha SONO Pinot Noir 2015
This is the flagship wine of Chateau Igai Takaha, a winery named after the owner's family crest. It was made the owner's wife, Miyoko Sugimoto, in mind. SONO is from a nickname for his wife's maiden name, Sonoda. A sophisticated blend of bold fruitiness and refined acidity alongside a strong minerality make this a jewel of a wine.

Kusuda Martinborough Syrah 2014
After graduating from Germany's Hochschule Geisenheim University, Hiroyuki Kusuda moved his family to New Zealand's Martinborough region in May 2001 in order to "make a Pinot Noir wine that would shock the world". When British wine critic Jancis Robinson sang the wine's praises, the Kusuda Martinborough name joined the ranks of the world's leading winemakers.
Kusuda Martinborough Pinot Noir 2013 is delighted to announce being awarded the Gold Medal for Best First Class Red by The Cellars in the Sky Awards 2016. We offer Kusuda Martinborough Pinot Noir 2014 on board.
