RESERVATIONS

WELCOME

Whether it be enjoying a delicious seafood plate accompanied by an austere, mineral driven white wine, or treating your palate to a steak skewer with our house made chimichurri, and a dark, luscious red... it’s all here for you to explore and savour. With the elemental design of raw historical concrete floors, metal accents, knotted natural woods and tropical plant life, it pairs just right with soundtracks of smooth samba, traditional tango, eclectic electronic beats or some old-school jazz. It’s rewarding for us to express this to our guests and more importantly for you to embrace. And for those who have had the pleasure of traveling, may your time spent here transport to those far away places for a moment in time.

Weingut Holzapfel Gruner Veltliner, Wachau, Austria 12/45

Grapes of excellent quality thrive on stony, mineral-rich, but also calcareous, slate-interspersed soils. But not only the special locations and the care are responsible for the uniqueness of these grapes. The temperature fluctuations caused by special climatic conditions and the different altitudes of the vineyards require an acidity that ensures freshness and elegance.

Jarenincan, Crnko, 3 blend,

Stajerska, Slovenia 12/57

LITER BTL

The thirst quenching, ever changing cuvee, the village wine of Jarenina. Gently aromatic with juicy acidity and surprising minerality. Planted on 6 hectares of Pannonian Marl, next to the border of the Austrian state of Styria. 

 

Vina Ijalba, Viura, Rioja, Spain 11/41

Viura is the top white variety of La Rioja. With it we can make a wine of a very intense aroma, with an essence of flowers and fruit, typical of the variety. It has a pale yellow color which reflects its freshness and final acidity of a wine which is unctuous in the mouth and not easily forgotten. A very natural wine. An experience to remember.

Chateau Briot, Sauvignon Blanc,

Bordeaux, France 10/37

Straw color. Aromas and flavors of dried grapefruit wheels, yogurt with honey-roasted nuts, and pressed flowers with a supple, lively, dry light body and a sleek, medium-length finish with overtones of underripe pineapple and lime with no oak flavor. A reserved nose leads to a bright and refreshing palate in this well-tamed Bordeaux Blanc.

 

Adega do Moncao,

Vinho Verde, Portugal 10/37

Alvarinho & Trajadura. This is a wine made by a co-operatives founded in 1958 with 25 growers that now has over 1700 members. This is a classic Vinho Verde with light, bright fresh pear, lime blossom but then with extra layers of ginger and nutmeg. On the Palate lemon sherbet, grapefruit and lime leaf come through with a light sparkle.

 

Toreta, Posip, Korkula, Croatia 15/57

From younger vines and spends less time on the skins (2 hours or so). It is an impossibly light and fresh Pošip. Ideal to drink with just about anything pulled from the sea.  It's defined by the elemental combination of Mediterranean herbs, thick pine forest, sunshine and sea breeze.

 

 Ken Forrester, Chenin blanc,

South Africa 10/37

Veteran South African hospitality professional and first exporter of South African wines to the states meet his wine. A youthful fresh wine with quince and pear aromatics. Crunchy green apple and grapefruit on the mid palate. Great mouthfeel.

Negroamaro 90% and Aglianico del Vulture 10%.  Fine ruby red with violet reflections. Bouquet generous bouquet recalling fruit and red berrics. 

Domaine des Cellier, "3"

Rhone, France 12/45

(Grenache Noir 65% , Syrah 30% , Mourvèdre 5%)

What an introduction to the forthright virtues of 3 Cellier. A supple, fervid and spicy brew of delicious black fruit that is almost dangerously gulpable. Hailing from two small parcels totalling about half a hectare just outside the appellation of Châteauneuf itself, this greets you like a Labrador puppy wagging its tail.
