Available wines and tasting notes

Applause Pinot Grigio 11%, Australia

Elegant and deliciously moreish Pinot Grigio from Australia. It’s charmingly modest in alcoholic terms for an Aussie at just 11%, but no less exciting for that. With juicy hints of pears and nectarines on the taste, but with a nicely soft acidity balance, this wine is just perfect for enjoying with oriental and fragrant dishes, but works well as an aperitif.

Applause Sauvignon 12%, France

From the sun drenched Languedoc region of southern France, this Sauvignon has hints of elderflower on the nose and a gentle touch of tropical fruit on the palate.  It’s just off dry and the acidity balance makes it very drinkable.  Great sunshine drinking with friends and a good match to salads, chicken and seafood dishes.

Applause Cinsault Rosé 12%, France

With more than a nod to the pale rosé wines of the Cote d’Azure, this uber-elegant Rosé is a charming glass on its own, but just perfect with summer salads and light meat or fish dishes. The grape is a classic southern French varietal, Cinsault, that more often turns up in the complex wines of the Rhone Valley. Here, careful winemaking has extracted summer red fruit on the nose and then a delicate ripeness of pears and peaches on the palate.

Applause Merlot Rosé 13%, Chile

The hints of strawberries on the nose, combined with its ripeness of colour make for an enticing glass.  Gently off dry on the finish, so it has the ability to cope with big, mediterranean or possibly spicy flavours, but such a pleasure on its own, on the decking.

Applause Merlot 13%, Chile

Fruit driven and with a gentle softness to the finish, this Merlot is a simply delicious glass of easy drinking red.  There’s plenty going on for a match to 28 day hung Aberdeen Angus burgers, however, as it has a good length of complex flavour and berry fruits on the finish.
