Wine list

Champagne and Sparkling Wines

 
   
Veuve Clicquot, Yellow Label Brut NV
Well known for both its full-bodied style and its consistency. Crisp, full flavoured with good concentration and a long, fruity aftertaste.
(France)
£58.00
half £32.00
   
Bollinger, Speciale Cuvée NV
The famous House of Bollinger is in the heart of the Champagne region – the wine is full of character with plenty of body, depth and length.
(France)
£65.00
   
Taittinger Prestige Brut Rosé
Made mainly using black grapes with a small quantity of Chardonnay added to achieve an elegance in keeping with Taittinger’s style. A beautiful, delicate salmon-pink colour and a flavour redolent of ripe summer fruit. (France)
£68.00
   
JM Gobillard et Fils, Blanc de Noirs Brut NV
From the 3rd generation Family-run winery of Gobillard , this is a rare example of a Champagne made from only red grapes (90% Pinot Noir, 10% Pinot Meunier) leaving the usual Chardonnay element out. Pale gold in the glass, amazing mousse and complex concentrated flavours of currant and toast. More obviously tasty than a million other champers – very good indeed! (France)
£42.00
(125 ml glass) £9.00
   
Prosecco, Ca’Vittoria
Our very popular Prosecco has lovely fresh fruit aromas and the flavour is full, complex and round. (Italy)
£26.50
   
Cava, Mont Marcal Grande Cuvée Brut
This is truly all the fizz you’ll ever need – from a small, independent producer, this is aged in the cellar for two years before release to gain fabulous intensity and balance. It has masses of tiny bubbles and great length, and just hits the spot. (Spain)
£26.50
   
   

Dusit Recommendations – White
(available by the glass)

 
   
Sauvignon Blanc, Ladera Verde
Clean, grassy fruit with fresh acidity. A small amount of Semillon adds weight and complexity. Both the climate, which is warm with sufficient rainfall, and the soil, which allows excellent drainage, make growing conditions in the Central Valley in Chile ideal. (Chile)
£16.50
(small gl) £4.50
(large gl) £6.00
   
Sauvignon Blanc, The Cut
A white with an edge from the sunny Nelson region – not sharp, strangely; piercing mango, a stab of passion fruit, a slash of citrus zest, an up-thrust of cut grass. Packed to the hilt with fruit and hugely enjoyable. (New Zealand)
£21.50
(small gl) £5.50
(large gl) £7.50
   
Pinot Grigio, Ancora
A well made, light, fragrant and delicate take on this Italian classic. Dry and fruity. (Italy)
£18.50
(small gl) £4.95 (large gl) £6.95
   

Dusit Recommendations – Red
(available by the glass)

 
   
Shiraz Cabernet, Sunnycliff
A medium-bodied wine showing rich plum and berry fruit flavours, with a hint of spice. Nicely integrated oak flavours with a soft, lingering finish. Deep colour but not heavy on the palate. What you would call very drinkable. (Australia)
£17.95
(small gl) £4.95
(large gl) £6.75
   
Merlot, Ladera Verde
Soft, round plum fruit with a ripeness that is so typical of Chile. Blended with a little Cabernet Sauvignon to give structure and length. Easy going and very pleasing. (Chile)
£17.00
(small gl) £4.70 (large gl) £6.15
   
   

White Wines

 
   
Gewürztraminer, Pffafenheim
Amazing aromatic, spicy and fresh wine – full bodied with a hint of lychees. Goes superbly well with Thai food. (Alsace)
£25.50
   
Riesling, Kahurangi Estate
Fresh, zippy and just off-dry, this is one of the best wines with our food. Limes, lemons, green apple and grapefruit are all there on the palate which finishes clean and minerally. (New Zealand)
£26.00
   
Semillon Sauvignon, Juniper Crossing, Margaret River
Light straw in colour, this fresh fruity style of wine shows passion fruit, gooseberry and green apple character. The mouth filling palate is smooth and full of juicy fruit with a long, refreshing finish.
(Western Australia)
£23.50
   
Chenin Blanc, Cape Heights
A crisp, dry white wine with a delicate lemon colour, displaying intense floral, guava and citrus aromas and succulent tropical fruit on the palate. Unctuous and mouth filling with a long finish.
(South Africa)
£19.00
   
Pinot Gris, Escarpment ‘The Edge’
Full flavoured, unoaked white with a wee touch of residual sugar. Lots of stone fruit, orange and kiwi fruit and a lush, open texture – very nice!
(New Zealand)

Meursault, Clos du Cromin
Golden yellow in colour with green tints; the nose shows fresh apple and pear, with nutty aromas, and the palate is rich and round with well balanced acidity. (France)

£30.50

A lively, fruit driven, unoaked Chardonnay. Crisp citrus and green apple flavours softened with fresh pineapple.

Albariño, Bodegas Eidosela, Rias Baixas
Rías Baixas, the birthplace of Albariño, lies at the heart of Galicia, the isolated region in the northwestern corner of Spain. This is a truly sensational, clean tasting and lively wine. Fragrant, fruity, and subtle on the nose and an elegant, full-bodied taste.
(Spain)
£29.50
   
Viognier, Cape Heights
We love this wine – peaches and apricots on the nose then it is amazingly rich, soft and creamy in the mouth. The very opposite of lean and green! Its full body and intense flavour loves Thai food. (South Africa)
£18.50
   
   

Red Wines

Juicy blackcurrants, some spice and just enough oak influence to balance the flavour. (Australia)

£27.00
   
Shiraz, Mollydooker, The Boxer
Bright and jazzy, offering an effusive mouthful of cherry, pomegranate and spice flavours that are as aromatic as they are long and vivid. This has density without great weight, and the finish just keeps on going... Incredible power and purity. Cancel tomorrow’s appointments!
(Australia)
£59.00
