New wines this season at The Pierhouse

3 new wines to try

Making new discoveries for our wine list at The Pierhouse hotel is both a pleasure and an interesting experience. Guided by Master of Wine, Jonathan Pedley, we'd like to introduce you to three of our latest additions. See the full wine list here>

White Wine

A super new white wine which is proving extremely popular is our Spanish Rioja Blanco Viura. Produced by CVNE Monopole this lovely new white Rioja is a crisp, zesty, dry white that is light-bodied and underpinned by lemony fruit. With a pale straw appearance, the nose is fresh and the palate is dry. Partners extremely well with Shellfish.

Rose Wine

2016 sees the appearance of a wonderful new French House Rosé which is actually a Grenache Merlot Rosé. Produced by Les Vignerons, this lovely rosé is a pale, peachy, pink, dry Rosé which has delicate red fruit and crisp acidity of the Grenache that blends perfectly with red berries and passion fruits of Merlot. This rosé makes an excellent partner with both white fish and shellfish.

Red Wine

Making an instant impact on our wine list this year is a fantastic full bodied red from Barossa in South Australia. The Yalumba Old Bush Vine Grenache is full-bodied and warming in the mouth, with low acidity and smooth tannins. Surprisingly subtle on the nose, exhibiting ripe red fruit and oak aromas. Rich & elegant and an excellent partner with meat and cheese.
