PORT

Quite a traditional yet outdated aperitif, Port is a lovely start to a meal. Chilled Dry White is what the Portuguese drink and swear by – and I can see why. Expect a lovely off-dry wine that is fortified and full-bodied. If that’s too adventurous for you, the Tawny 20 year is beautiful – light bronze in colour with a lengthy palate of stewed plums and spices.

Wiese and Krohn, 20 Year Old Tawny,  9.00

Wiese and Krohn, Late Bottled Vintage, 2009, 5.50

Quinta de la Rosa, Late Bottled Vintage, 2011, 6.50

Quinta de la Rosa, Dry White Port, 5.00

White port is sadly largely ignored but we absolutely love it as an aperitif; dry but rich on the palate

PINEAU DES CHARENTES

Pineau des Charentes is a type of French fortified wine made from either fresh, unfermented grape juice or a blend of lightly fermented grape must, to which a Cognac eau-de-vie is added then matured.

Pinot de Charentes Blanc, Ugni Blanc, Francois Mery, 3.50

Made from 1 year old Cognac which is then matured for 2 years. Delicate sweet, honey notes, delicious!

Pinot de Charentes Rose, Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot, Francois Mery, 3.50

Almost like a sherry, note of plum and spice with a touch of sultanas and slight nuttiness on the finish

CHAMPAGNE

 Most Non-Vintage champagne is a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. Chardonnay provides elegance and refinement; Pinot Noir produces berries and fat bubbles; Pinot Meunier adds a floral nose and appeal. Blanc de Blancs is made from entirely from Chardonnay, being the only white grape. Champagnes such as Bollinger tend to favour more Pinot Noir in their blend. A Blanc de Noirs is a champagne made from both Pinot Noir and Meunier, which are both red grapes producing white juice.

GROWER’S CHAMPAGNES

Champagne Larmandier-Bernier, Latitude

This is composed exclusively of Chardonnay from the same ‘latitude’ in the south of Vertus. Very dry blend, elegant and pure flavours, a breathtaking wine!

Champagne Larmandier-Bernier, Terre de Vertus 1er Cru, 2009

Highly elegant and silky on the palate, this is a fruit intense but firmly structured vintage Champagne of great finesse. Pure and delicate bouquet with lovely walnut flavours on the aftertaste.

Jacques Selosse, INITIAL, Brut

Immensely complex aromas with a strong core of chalky minerals, honey, peach and almond with a palate that is soft and supple – the sweet and savoury mix is really engaging. Complete, polished and silky, this is a handsome interpretation of clay-driven richness, delivered with balance and flair. A true wonder of Champagne House Selosse.

Il Fresco, Spumante Rosato, Villa Sandi                                                                           NV                           34.00

Although Rosé Prosecco may sound slightly unusual, Villa Sandi produces an absolutely beautiful wine. With a lovely light pink color, the Il Fresco has a very delicate nose consisting of golden apples and mountain flowers. The palate is very dry and fresh with a long, lovely fruity finish.

 SPARKLING WINE

Jansz Cuvee Brut, Tasmania                                                                                               NV                           49.00

The Jansz Tasmania vineyard lies in the Tamar Valley, in the heart of the Pipers River region. The prestigious house of Louis Roederer was involved in the foundation of the vineyard. Produced in the méthode champeniose, the Tansz Cuvée exhibits honeysuckle and citrus scents that are immediately apparent as well as slight aromas of roasted nuts and a hint of strawberry from the Pinot Noir. Delicate fruits and creaminess wash through the mouth leaving a lingering finish of citrus and nougat.

Produced by Andy Cook, an old friend of owner of the restaurant, the Consolation Mourvèdre is a rich, dark pink in color and is on the sweeter side of Rosé spectrum. With a sweet aroma and notes of strawberries and icing sugar, this wine is wonderful on its own or even as a palate cleanser between courses.

WHITE WINES

FRANCE

LOIRE VALLEY

The Loire produces some terrific seafood wines mainly from the Sauvignon Blanc and Chenin Blanc grapes; racing acidity, lemon freshness and minerality are keywords for this region.

 Muscadet de Sèvre et Maine ‘sur lie’, Jean François Guilbaud                                                   2014                       29.00

Vouvray, Les Coteaux Tufiers, ‘Demi-Sec`                                                                                      2014                       29.00

Saumur Blanc, Domaine Langlois-Chateau                                                                                     2013                       45.00

Owned by Champagne Bollinger, Domaine Langlois-Chateau produces a wonderfully dry and elegantly fresh Chenin Blanc which differs from the traditional Loire style. Expect bright minerality with slight hints of green apple and honeysuckle. This is an excellent wine to try if you are looking to explore the Loire beyond the classic Sancerres or Pouilly Fumés. Truly an expression of Chenin Blanc in all its splendour.

BORDEAUX

Bordeaux has recently recaptured our imagination with their white wines. They are dominated by the Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon grape varietals.

Château La Fleur des Graves, Graves de Vayres                                                                            2014                       40.00

Clos Floridene Blanc, Grand vin de Graves                                                                                     2011                       66.00

Crafted by Denis Dubourdieu, hailed as the Master of white Bordeaux, Clos Floridene is a Semillon dominated blend; it is composed of 55% Semillon, 44% Sauvignon Blanc, and 1% Muscadelle. Although it is lightly oaked, this wine has a full, fresh-fruit character consisting of white peach and tangerine.

SOUTH WEST FRANCE

Columbard/Sauvignon, Domus Blanc, Domaine d’Uby                                                                2014                       32.00

Irouleguy, Herri Mina, Jean-Claude Berrouet                                                                                2014                       52.00

The vineyard, situated in the Pyrenees 400 metres above sea level, is operated by Jean-Claude Berrouet who spent three decades as a winemaker with the prolific Chateau Petrus. It is a splendid white blend of Gros Manseng, Petit Corbu, and Petit Manseng. This is a zippy wine alive with flavour, rip-roaring acidity. Dry and rich, this is a wine you’ll come back for.

BURGUNDY

Saint-Bris, William Fevre                                                                    `                                               2012                       35.00

The little village of Saint-Bris produces an atypical appellation in the Burgundian universe, since it is the only Burgundian white AOC that accepts the Sauvignon grape variety. It is characterised by a very aromatic bouquet of exotic fruit, fresh and silky on the palate, a wine with exquisite lightness.

CHABLIS

Vincent Dampt is a young rising star of Chablis. He comes from a pedigree like none other, father Daniel Dampt and Grandfather Jean Defaix are both legends in the region. Vincent got his inspiration from outside of France, spending time in Marlborough, New Zealand. Needless to say this gave him a different outlook on winemaking.

 Chablis, Vincent Dampt                                                                      `                                               2015                       40.00

This one is an absolute gem. Amazing freshness, depth and length for a generic Bourgogne Blanc.

LANGUEDOC-ROUSSILLON

The Languedoc has become another of our favourite regions, which is producing some fantastic red, rosé and white wines for brilliant value for money. The variety and the breadth of styles mean that you can keep coming back and finding something new. The varietals here are Grenache Blanc and Gris, Viognier, Picpoul, Marsanne, Roussane and Macabeu, which is known as Viura in Spain and used for white Rioja.

This is a wine that truly justifies the price. A high level of quality and precision, in the making and vine selection, shows in the finished product -, well-balanced and aromatic and a true privilege to enjoy, a perfect accompaniment to our subtle, yet complex, fish dishes – bringing- out the best in each.

Ezerjó is native to Hungary and can be found in either lusciously sweet dessert wines, or clean and structured dry wines. The wine shows delicate citrus, floral and spice aromas, then comes into its own on the palate, showing lively acidity and a steely mineral driven finish. With our West Coast Oysters or a bowl of Moules, this wine would be a near perfect match.  

 SLOVENIA

Ribolla Selekcija, Marjan Simcic, Brda                                                                                              2012                      48.00

The Slovenian region of Brda lies immediately to the East of Italy’s Collio region, a quality wine terroir bisected by an international border and home to the Ribolla grape. Sourced from vines of over 50 years, The Ribolla Selekcija is big and complex with dried fruits, candied zest and a slice of tarte tatin.

 MACEDONIA

Stobi Cuvee Blanc, Tikves                                                                                                                   2013                      32.00

ITALY

Italian whites tend to all have a similar almond, mineral nuance to them, with a really clean freshness and acidic bite which makes them beautiful food wines.

SOUTH AFRICA

South Africa has found its identity in the wine world and is without doubt producing arguably some of the best Sauvignon Blanc in both the New and Old world. Producers in the Swartland are making ground breaking white blends that have wine writers across the UK scrambling to write their reviews and score these wines highly.

USA

A country that offers it all, where mountain ranges, proximity to the ocean and rolling fog play as big a role, if not bigger than the winemakers themselves. From the legendary status of California and its AVA’s Napa, Sonoma, Carneros, this state offers quality, diversity and consistency. Washington State to the North of California offers a completely different experience. Near desert-like conditions tempered by large difference between day and night temperatures and latitude help winemakers produce intensely flavoured Alsace-like white wines. One of my favourite regions.

CHILE

 Chile has one of the most perfect combinations of climate, geography and topography for winemaking in the world. Isolation saved its vineyards from deadly diseases in the 1800’s and the true quality of the wines are now being realised. Purity, simplicity and freshness best describes the whites.

ARGENTINA

Near desert-like conditions forced growers up the Andes Mountains to grow vines, and this was a stroke of true genius. In some regions like the Salta province, vines are planted as high as 1800m above sea level! Combine this with long sunshine hours and you have the ideal conditions for ripe, complex fruit which retains its freshness and acidity. If you want Quality at a great price, Argentina ticks all the boxes for me.

RED WINES

FRANCE

BORDEAUX

The Bordeaux wines on this page are from the Left Bank which is further divided into the Médoc and Graves regions, with the Médoc to the north. The Left Bank is dominated by the Cabernet Sauvignon grape with a smaller percentage of Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc used to make up the typical ‘Bordeaux Blend.’ Legally winemakers are still allowed to use Malbec and Carignan although very few still do. The soils make a huge difference, and here they are mainly gravelly soil with the communes of Saint-Estèphe and Pauillac being more powerful due to the sediment from the Gironde river. Saint-Julien and Margaux produce more feminine reds.

 PESSAC-LEOGNAN

Pessac-Leognan is found just south of the city of Bordeaux in the Graves region. The appellation is fairly recent, dating to 1987. Before then, the area was part of the Graves AOC, and known informally as Haut Graves. In the mid-seventeenth century Chateau Haut Brion became the first chateau of international renown, being praised by Samuel Pepys in 1663, while the Medoc was still a swamp. Chateau le Thil Comte Clary was bought by Chateau Smith Haut Lafite in 2012 and continues is upward trajectory, offering great claret at affordable prices.

FRANCE

BORDEAUX

These Bordeaux wines come from the Right Bank. They are dominated by the Merlot grape but often feature some Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot or Cabernet Franc. The soils here are more limestone and clay affected. The wines of Pomerol have earned a cult following, with many attracting a lot of interest on the investment markets. They tend to be smooth and opulent wines, and are ideal for drinking with beef.

POMEROL

L’Hospitalet de Gazin                                                                                                                          2012                       75.00

BURGUNDY

As Chardonnay is to white Burgundy, so Pinot Noir is to red. The northern half, the Côte de Nuits, generally produces deeper wines with more intensity, whereas the Côte de Beaune wines have a lighter feel to them. Typical fruit flavours are of cherries, red currants, and wild strawberries with a hint of farmyard smells.

 BOURGOGNE EPINEUIL AC

Bourgogne Epineuil, Domaine Fournillon                                                                                       2013                       45.00

Epineuil is located very close to Chablis and the similar terroir is reflected in this wine. Grown on a south facing slope with chalky soil, this wine is extremely light-bodied with almost no tannins and has light notes of cherries and blackberries with a slightly peppery finish.

BEAUJOLAIS

Gamay has traditionally made light and fruity early drinking wines, but more and more the techniques used by the master winemakers in Burgundy are being successfully implemented thus the standard of Beaujolais is and has shot up over the last decade.

Fleurie, ‘Grille-Midi’, Chateau de Raousset                                                                                    2013                       40.00

RHÔNE VALLEY

The Rhône Valley is clearly split into two sub-regions with distinct vinicultural traditions. The Northern Rhône has a continental climate and is dominated by the Syrah (or Shiraz) red grape and the Viognier white grape varietals, and there is often a dash of Viognier permitted into the red wine blend depending on the appellation. The Mediterranean climate of the Southern Rhône favours grape varietals such as Grenache Noir, Mouvèdre, Cinsault and Carignan. Fabulous robust wines from the south, whereas the north produces silky smooth Syrahs.

LANGUEDOC-ROUSSILLON
This region has become one of our favourites, partly due to our friendship with a terrific wine maker who used to live and study in St Andrews. The reds from this region are an expression of Grenache Noir, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Carignon predominantly.

ITALY

Italy, on our list, represents great value; it also represents great depth of wine-making and breadth of variety.  Italian reds are traditionally characterised by cherry flavours, but they also have a lively acidity – perfect for food.

SPAIN

Spain produces powerful and robust wines, which usually show intense cherry and blackberry with notes of566oo pepper and spices and lengthy tannins. Rioja, which has a complicated ageing system, uses predominantly the Tempranillo grape with lots of oak. Ribera del Duero is similar, with complex and lengthy oak ageing processes and the Tempranillo grape, but presents a more fruit-forward style.

Australian wines can never be discounted – from big powerful wines from the Barossa Valley to more delicate styles like that of the McLaren Valley there is plenty of choice.

BEERS

We love our selection of beers. Like whisky, good beer is made from good water, something we have in abundance in Scotland. The Seafood Restaurant and St Andrew Brewing Co. have a very close relationship, as the owner of the restaurant also partly owns St Andrews Brewing co. Artisan brewing at its best, Bob ‘the brewer` Pfaff does all the brewing, bottling, labelling and packaging… Oh yes, and delivering on his own. His beers have been winning awards all over Scotland and the UK recently and the brewery is going from strength to strength. The Brewery also moved into their new brewing facility in St Andrews recently and became the first brewery to brew beer in the town of St Andrews for 114 years. The recently released Citra, was especially brewed for restaurants, being a lighter style pale ale, with lager malt being used to give it a lovely citrus lift and a bitter lingering yet light finish. The range shows the versatility and skill of this Micro-brewery and we at The Seafood Restaurant are privileged to be part of such a great Brewery and its ales
