5 Must-Try Wines at Chakra
Posted on 25th August 2016
It’s high summer, and our chefs are busy working behind the scenes to create a new menu full of autumn spice. As we prepare to move into a new season, we’ve been thinking about the classics – the perennial favourites that our guests love time and time again, whatever the weather. We have an extensive wine list at Chakra, a blend of global flavours that perfectly complement our modern Indian dishes. Here are five favourites from our collection.
Château Cissac Haut-Médoc Bordeaux 2011
The Château Cissac vineyards have been the source of exquisite Bordeaux since 1895, but 2011 is an excellent vintage year. This classic wine has a rich, complex flavour, and is best enjoyed with red meats and cheese.
Domaine de Saint-Pierre Sancerre Blanc 2014
Popular among critics, this wine is a subtle blend of white fruits with citrus. Balancing fruity with mineral flavours, the rich taste is best suited to seafood and white meat dishes.
Kaimira Estate Brightwater Pinot Noir 2011
Sourced from Nelson, a small New Zealand wine region surrounded on three sides by mountains, this wine has an aromatic, elegant flavour reminiscent of its exotic sunny climate. A versatile option that suits meat or fish.
Meerlust Chardonnay 2014
Hand picked from three vineyards on the Meerlust Estate, this bright, fresh chardonnay has a unique platinum-green hue. The citrus and floral notes have a balanced acidity, and there are also tones of marzipan and minerality. Enjoy with grilled fish, red or white meat dishes.
Domaine de Saint-Pierre Sancerre Rosé 2014
A pale, blushing rosé with strawberry flavours and a light acidity. Well-balanced with an aromatic, fruity finish, this wine is a wonderful accompaniment to light dishes such as salads and seafood.
