Wine Menu at Blacks of Chapel Street

We have a brand new wine list for summer 2020! Why? Well after running with our previous wine list for nearly two years – which proved very popular – we decided to explore some new and exciting offerings to ‘up our game’ at Blacks of Chapel Street. We’re delighted to have found a really knowledgeable local supplier for whom nothing is too much bother – just like how we like to operate. So, why not come down and see what is on offer and enjoy a glass or two with us?

Great news, not only are some of the wines available by the glass but we are pleased to be offering 500ml carafes as an alternative to purchasing certain full bottles.

White Wine

Mirabello Pinot Grigio 12.5% - Italy

Fresh and crisp, gentle floral and citrus aromas with lightly honeyed fruit balanced. Versatile as an aperitif or to with seafood, grilled fish, salads and cold white meats.

False bay Slow Chenin Blanc 13% - South Africa

Les Volets Chardonnay 13% - France

22
The Haute Vallée de L’Aude benefits from a warm climate combined with high altitude which results in wines with concentrated fruit yet refreshing acidity. Made from mostly hand-picked grapes, 20% has been vinified in old oak, imparting texture and body. Bright acidity gives way to green apple and brioche notes. Old oak barrels have added texture and given a toasted hazelnut twist.

From an old near-discarded eden valley vineyard, fragrant, textural, a bone-dry pleasure.
