Summer Wine Guide

Our top picks for those late summer evenings catching up with friends & family…

Gusbourne Brut Reserve

From: Appledore, England

This sparkling wine is made just down the road from Elwick Place, at Gusbourne Estate near Appledore. This is exceptional Kentish fizz, bright gold in colour with red fruit aromas and a long refreshing finish. Also available by the glass at our bar.

Pairs well with fish & chips!

Whispering Angel

From: Provence, France

Cult provence rosé, best enjoyed on a sunny evening at one of our outdoor tables! Whispering Angel is classically Provencal in its style – dry but fruity, with flavours of grapefruit, citrus & strawberries.

Pairs well with a soft goats cheese, like our Fremlins Log…

Biddenden Dornfelder

From: Biddenden, England

Another Kentish number and this time a red! This wine if made from Dornfelder grapes – an early ripening German variety, perfect for cooler climates – and being so light-bodied, it’s beautiful served chilled. Expect aromas of raspberry and summer fruits.

Pair with a charcuterie platter featuring sweet but salty lonzino… or with a tangy blue cheese like Fourme D’Ambert or Bath Blue

Martí Serdà El Xitxarel·lo

From: Catalunia, Spain

A fresh & delicate white from Catalunia in North East Spain – one of the oldest wine producing regions in Europe. It has citric acidity and an unexpected creaminess that gives incredible balance. We also love the bottle which is covered top to bottom in Catalan swear words… 77 to be precise!

Pair with paella or a fish stew & fennel…

Musita Syrah

From: Sicily, Italy

Bursting with berry fruits, this Sicilian Syrah is medium-bodied with spicy notes on the finish. It’s punchy enough to hold its own with strong flavoured dishes but fruity enough to enjoy without food while the sun’s still shining.

Pairs well with steak… cooked on our plancha of course!
