                                                  White Wines
                                                 House Selection

Domaine de Bertier                                       2010              France                    £17.45
Domaine de Bertier is a single estate located near Montpellier in southern France. This white is a blend of Viognier
and Sauvignon Blanc, fresh and quite peachy in flavour.

Amapola                                                    2010            Chile                  £17.95
85 % Sauvignon Blanc, 15% Chardonnay. This cleverly versatile wine combines the fruity bold scents of the New
World with a rewardingly full yet subtle depth of flavour. Although principally made with Sauvignon Blanc, there is
a tiny seasoning of Chardonnay to give breadth and substance so the wine is equally at home, lightly chilled, with
snacks or with salads and cold meats.

Stormy Cape                                                2010             South Africa        £18.95
100% Chenin Blanc. A classic example from one of South Africa's best loved grape varieties. Zesty and fruity, this
wine is perfect for drinking by the glass but also compliments light seafood dishes and salads.

                                                   White Wines

Rioja Vega, Viña Cerrada Blanco                          2010              Spain                     £19.50
100% Viura grapes are used in this classic white Rioja. With low acidity, high fruit and a clean finish this wine is
good for cocktails or drinking on its own.

MandraRossa                                                 2010             Italy                £20.00
100% Fiano. The MandraRossa range is designed for early drinking but retaining complexity and interest at the
same time. The palate is inviting, exotic and generous, displaying aromatic tropical fruits and hints of minerals.
Excellent as an aperitif and will complement oily fish and full flavoured white meats.

Sacchetto                                                2010            Italy                        £20.50
100% Pinot Grigio. Cool fermented with lees contact to give extra complexity to this fresh wine.

Santa Celina                                              2010         Argentina              £21.00
100% Pinot Gris from Mendoza, situated on a plateau in the foothills of the Andes and ranging in altitude from
around 450 metres to 1200 metres above sea level. Pinot Gris grapes are grown at the higher altitudes as the
temperature is cooler, consequently lengthening the ripening process.

Domaine Felines Jourdan                                    2009            France                  £21.00
Chardonnay / Roussanne. This wine comes from the deep south of France, in sight of the Mediterranean and near
the Pic St Loup. Splendid mouth-filling richness from Chardonnay, with a haunting, herbal note from the Roussanne.

Domaine de la Cessane                                      2009    France                    £21.50
Marsanne/Viognier. Vin de Pays d’Oc. Two of Rhône’s principal grape varieties that work perfectly in tandem.
Ideal for accompanying light fish or meat without a rich sauce.

Domaine Langlois-Château, Saumur Blanc               2009           France                    £22.00
100% Chenin Blanc. A lifted fresh and approachable, fruity Saumur which offers the freshness of its chalky soil
with the honeyed characters of the grape variety.

Chapoutier, Côtes-du-Rhône, Belleruche Blanc           2010          France                   £22.50
The 2010 Côtes-du-Rhône Belleruche blanc is a blend of Grenache Blanc, Bourboulenc, and Marsanne and shows
honeysuckle, lemon oil, and white currants in a medium-bodied, crisp, attractive, surprisingly serious style.
Biodynamically produced.

My Word Is My Bond, Peter Lehmann                             2007             Australia           £22.50
100% Riesling. ‘My Word Is My Bond’ is the principle that led to the foundation of Peter Lehmann Wines in the
Barossa in 1980, when Peter Lehmann started his own winery to do the ‘right thing’ and protect his mates. This
wine is very delicate with green tints in colour with spicy fruit and delicate floral aromas.

Pulenta Estate                                             2007            Argentina                £24.00
100% Chardonnay. Pulenta gets better with each year. The whites were initially rather too `made'; now they have
better balance and more poise. In their 2007 Chardonnay, the aroma has a delicate balance between the tropical
and the creamy, with hints of fruits from the citric end of the spectrum to add definition. A versatile wine perfect
with freshwater fish or white meats.

Wickham Vineyards                                          2009               England                £25.00
100 % Faber. Is it me or does drinking this wine give a rush equal to that of twisting a Russet from the tree?! I’m
not picking up any accent but I know that the majority of the fruit is estate grown, just down the road, as well as a
parcel of fruit ‘all the way’ from the New Forest. Chalky, floral, newly-mown grass and slightly tropical aromas
characterise this otherwise cool, classic Hampshire white, eerily reminiscent of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.

La Flor                                                   2010              Argentina         £25.00
100% Sauvignon Blanc. A wonderful Sauvignon from Pulenta, crisp and aromatic, with an exemplary texture.
Crisp without tart acidity, complex and leafy, with asparagus and citric notes on the palate.

Gavi di Gavi                                               2009       Italy                    £26.50
Cru la Maddelena, Roberto Sarotto. 100% Cortese grapes from the southern Piedmontese hills. An excellent
aperitif wine, un-oaked and with flavours of white stone fruit.

Domaine Felines Jourdan                                  2010              France                  £27.50
100 % Picpoul de Pinet. The 2010 is especially successful; a marriage of oyster shell, pebbles and almost a hint of
honey. The wine is an unbeatable match for “fruits de mèr”, grilled fish and, when in season, asparagus.

Domaine des Gerbeaux, Mâcon-Solutré                            2009   France                   £28.00
100% Chardonnay. A delicious Mâcon cuvée reserved entirely for Berry Bros. & Rudd. This has delightful,
attractive soft fresh fruit with a mineral touch for drinking early.

Igrexario de Saiar, Bodega de Benito Santos               2009            Spain                    £29.50
100% Albariño, Rias Baixas. Medium bodied, dry wine from the high-trained vines of the greener Western tip of
Spain. Aromatic, broadly textured and gently spicy, the Lagar is a famous example. To try with the fruits of the

Domaine Lucas & Andre Reiffel                             2005              France                     £32.50
100% Riesling, Vieilles Vignes. Assertive herb-tinged nose with green fruit characters. Quite full, herby palate is
savoury and dry. Biodynamically produced.

St Véran, Les Terres Noires                              2009              France                   £36.50
100% Chardonnay. Their St Véran wine is vinified and aged in stainless steel and is a rich, pure expression of
Chardonnay. A proportion of ‘Les Terres Noires’, ‘Chailloux’ and the ‘Vieilles Vignes’ cuvées are aged in Vosges
and Allier oak.

Domaine de Fourchaume, Chablis Premier Cru           2009             France                    £40.50
100% Chardonnay. A 17 hectare holding and one of the best placed premier crus in terms of soil, drainage and
exposure. Again no cask ageing and more complex and youthful than the village Chablis.

Château de Puligny-Montrachet                               2008           France                   £42.50
100% Chardonnay, Bourgogne Blanc. Château de Puligny was a slumbering force until finally been awoken by
the arrival of Etiènne de Montille in time to oversee the 2001 vintage. Under Etiènne, yields have been drastically
reduced and the wines are handled much more sympathetically in the cellar so that the quality of the fruit
dominates the oak.

                                                   Rosé Wines

Château Gassier                                            2010             France                     £23.50
40% Syrah, 30%Grenache, 30% Cinsault. Selected from vineyards surrounding the most traditional of all rosé
growing areas, Aix-en-Provence. Deliciously fruity, soft and very easy to drink, finishing crisp and refreshing.

Domaine Les Aphillanthes                                2008             France                    £25.50
Côtes du Rhône Rosé. The Domaine is located in the small town of Travaillan, just northwest of Gigondas. Here
Daniel and Hélène have been fashioning Côtes-du-Rhônes using biodynamic principles. Their red wine is also

                                                 House Selection

Berrys’ House Red                                          2010              France                  £17.45
Merlot blend. The philosophy behind Berrys' Own Selection wines is simple. “We seek to work with leading
producers to handcraft wines that are truly representative of both the wines region of origin and the winemaker’s
individual winemaking style. These are the wines on which our reputation rests, so you can be sure that we have
left no stone unturned in unearthing the best value and quality possible in each region”.

Javiera                                        2010            Chile                     £17.95
100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep red fruits reminiscent of blackcurrants and spice on the nose from the rolling
vineyards of the Maipo Valley. Smooth and rewarding on the palate it is light enough for a glass as an aperitif as
well as accompanying both red and white meats. True value for money from South America.

Opal Ridge                                              2010            Australia            £18.95
Cabernet Sauvignon / Shiraz. Aromas and flavours of chocolate and cherry enhanced by spice and peppery
characters. Soft and easy drinking with good balance and palate length.

                                                    Red Wines

Rioja Vega, Viña Cerrada Tinto                           2010             Spain            £19.50
50% Tempranillo, 40% Garnacha and 10% Mazuelo make this a bright garnet red wine with purple hues. Un-
oaked and with notes of red berries; a good wine for drinking without food.

Sansovino                                                  2007            Italy                    £20.00
100% Raboso. A little known grape variety which is native to north-east Italy. It can produce rather rugged wines
but not so with this example. Both tannin and acidity are well balanced, and a lowish alcohol enhances the wine’s
fresh, cherry-stone character. A pleasant and surprisingly toothsome discovery, to be enjoyed with all
Mediterranean flavours.

The Last Stand                                              2008           Australia                £21.00
100% Shiraz. Premium quality fruit and mature vines have produced a wine with great balance, length and fruit
intensity. Dark cherry and plum dominate the nose with hints of spice and leather. These flavours carry on to the
palate and integrate nicely with the soft, supple, savoury tannins.

Domaine de la Cessane                                   2009           France                  £21.50
Grenache and Merlot work well together here. Vinified separately, when assembled they yield a wine with ripe
black fruit, spicyness and good length.

Man Vintners                                              2010           South Africa              £22.00
Pinotage, with a dash of Shiraz and Viognier. Deep ruby red in the glass with a beguiling nose of strawberries
and black cherries and a subtle hint of Pinotage's trademark smoky complexity. Juicy and fresh on the palate, this
wine is extremely moreish.

La Flor, Pulenta, Mendoza                                 2009             Argentina                £22.50
100% Malbec. Deep purple in colour with a nose of red berries, vanilla and chocolate, the wine is blessed with
beautiful sweet fruit and a delicious and spicy backdrop. Rich and elegant, but with an almost ethereal quality, but
sufficiently grounded to accompany a sirloin steak!

Escale                                                     2009              France                  £23.50
100% Pinot Noir. The very lightly oaked Escale Pinot Noir is elegant and fruity, displaying all the hallmarks of the
Pinot grape with hints of raspberries on the nose and silky tannin structure on the palate.

Chono Carmenère                                             2007               Chile                  £25.00
100% Carmenère, farmed in the Maipo Valley by the Andes to the East and the Coastal mountain range to the
West. 60% of the wine has been matured in French and American oak for 10 months and 5% of Cabernet Franc
has been added to the blend to impart aromatic definition. This is benchmark Carmenère with ripe black fruit, a
pleasingly refreshing, slightly leafy backdrop and ripe, attractive fruit tannins underpinning a seamless structure.

Berton Reserve                                            2008             Australia               £25.50
100% Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine was pressed off into stainless steel tanks where it completed
malolactic fermentation in the late autumn. The wine was then racked off into French oak with an equal spread of
new, 1, 2 and 3 years ageing.

Ondarre, Rioja Reserva                                    2005              Spain                     £26.50
75% Tempranillo, 10% Garnacha and 15% Mazuelo. Intense cherry red colour. Aromas of oak ageing with hints
of spices. Strong attack, good backbone, full-flavoured, with well integrated long-lasting tannins. Long and
persistent finish.

Eco Trail                                                   2006             Canada                     £27.00
60% Cabernet Franc, 30% Chambourcin and 10% Zweigelt. A great wine to be enjoyed with friends around the
dinner table. Pelee Island is home to the rarest natural habitat in Ontario. While the island is well known by wine
experts, dedicated bird watchers and tourists also come to enjoy the island's natural beauty and simplicity.

Domaine Les Aphillanthes, Côtes-du-Rhône                  2007             France                £27.00
100% Syrah. The Domaine is located in the small town of Travaillan, just northwest of Gigondas. Here Daniel and
Hélène… have been fashioning Côtes-du-Rhônes which have burst onto the international markets to considerable
acclaim, with an effusive Robert Parker describing the wines as "spectacularly powerful,
concentrated...comparable to the finest Gigondas and Chateauneuf-du-Papes". Biodynamically produced.

Peachy Canyon                                             2007             USA                      £27.50
100% Zinfandel ‘Incredible Red’ from this 18 hectare vineyard in the Paso Robles area nestled in the Santa Lucia
Mountains. The winery exemplifies the contrasts of a region which is ideally suited to growing Zinfandel. This wine
is dominated by strawberry and raspberry aromas with a hint of black pepper - beautifully balanced.

Crozes-Hermitage                                        2007              France                   £29.50
Les Meysonniers, 100% Syrah. A perennial favourite; famously and incomprehensibly described by the grower
Michel Chapoutier as ‘more disco than baroque’, a celebration at its most accessible and friendly, with plums,
pepper and bright fruit to the fore. Biodynamically produced.

Trinity Hill                                             2009            New Zealand           £30.50
100% Pinot Noir. The fruit was hand harvested from a vineyard in the Te Awanga region of Hawke's Bay. This
wine was aged for 11 months in Burgundy barriques, of which 50% were new. Black fruits, such as plums,
blackcurrant and cherry are evident, entwined with wet earth and smoky oak notes. Medium bodied and silky with
great depth of plum and cherry entwined with smoky spice.

Saint-Émilion Grand Cru                                  2006            France                    £32.00
Château Fonbel. The lusher notes from the Merlot flow across the palate whilst the modest proportion of Cabernet
Sauvignon enlivens and asserts around the edges. Enjoyable now for its exuberance, but sufficiently structured to
age for a couple of years.

Waterford                                                     2007            South Africa              £32.50
100% Cabernet Sauvignon. The best vintage in Stellenbosch in the last 10-15 years. The Helderberg aromas tend
to be a little earthy as opposed to fruity during the early stages of maturing in the bottle, and given sufficient time
in the glass they expand considerably.

Chorey-lès-Beaune                                                2008             France                  £34.50
Pierre Chapitre, Domaine Tollot-Beaut, 100% Pinot Noir. The Tollot-Beaut family Domaine is based at Chorey-lès-
Beaune, often thought of as a slightly old-fashioned backwater. Their vineyard holdings, however, extend to
Beaune, Savigny, Aloxe-Corton and a tiny holding in the Corton Charlemagne vineyard. The hallmark of their
wines is a striking purity of fruit - the reds display a truly succulent quality supported (but never dominated) by
judicious use of oak.

Château Batailley                                         2004           France                  £40.50
Château Batailley 5ème Cru Classé, Paulliac has cassis, tobacco and vanilla-charged elements, with a subtle, yet
firm Paulliac backbone. An exceedingly approachable claret.

Gevrey-Chambertin                                           2005            France                   £46.50
Camille Giroud, 100% Pinot Noir. This dry, light-bodied red wine is a classic example of a red Burgundy. The
quality of winemaking is consistent and very much in the modern, quality-oriented genre, although the practice of
very gentle oak treatment and little racking (decanting is advised for young wines) continues, so that each cuvée
has a very individual character.

                                                   Dessert Wines

Elysium                                                    2009            USA                      £22.50
Black Muscat (37.5cl). Andy Quady created the Elysium wine to have an aroma of roses and berry-like tastes. It is
rich and full flavoured and matches a variety of desserts and blue cheeses, and particularly, chocolate.

Castelnau de Suduiraut                                    2006            France                  £26.00
Sauternes, 2nd wine of Château Suduiraut (37.5cl). Wonderful sweetness but never cloying. Exotic apricots and
almonds in perfect balance. Brilliant with creamy desserts, blue cheese and foie gras.

Allenmere                                                   2004           Australia                 £27.50
Botrytis Semillon (37.5cl). From Australia’s most notorious wine region, sweet wine delights can also be found! The
Semillon grape in Australia gives the wine a rich and unctuous texture. The flavours are complex, showing orange

Wines of this quality are made using the traditional treading techniques that have not changed in 2000 years,
producing wines with intense colour and flavour. Selected from a number of top quality vineyards, including
Warre’s own Quinta da Cavadinha, the company's Vintage Port is aged in wooden cask for 18 months before
being bottled unfiltered using a normal driven cork.

Brut Majeur is the result of the blending of a particular harvest with quality reserve wines. Aÿ being the capital of
Pinot Noir, this noble grape is always dominant thus ensuring the vinosity, the fullness and the intensity of the wine.
Chardonnay gives elegance, liveliness and finesse, and Pinot Meunier adds a delicate fresh and fruity note.

This vintage 100% Chardonnay champagne is a blend of three Grand Crus from the Côtes des Blancs in which Le
Mesnil has the largest proportion, completed with wines from Cramant and Chouilly. These Crus combine
beautifully to deliver a very elegant, light, creamy and lively wine.

Rosé Majeur is a unique blend where the importance is given to Chardonnay which accounts for more than 40% of
the cuvée. The unusual proportion of white grapes and low dosage gives extra-ordinary delicacy to the wine.

Owned by the original family established in 1818 by Nicolas-François Billecart. Most of Billecart-Salmon's fruit
comes from a small vineyard holding. Meticulous production techniques, from the use of their own cultured yeast to
its long, slow, cool fermentation, ensure that the family has 100% control of production.

style is perfectly suited to the vintage. The blend is 65/35 in favour of Pinot Noir, the grapes being sourced from
only the very best sites.

flavours of Chenin Blanc - a variety so clearly suited for sparkling production due to its fine acidity. One fifth of
Chardonnay adds fruitiness and depth.
