Wine

(Nederlands) Onze wijnkaart is een avontuur in smaak, boordevol variatie en uitmuntende prijs/kwaliteit verhouding. Van klassiek tot innovatief met een accent op verrassende smaken uit alle windstreken. Een traktatie voor elk pallet! PDF wijn kaart

Clayton Road Chardonnay, Murray Darling, Australia, 2016

glas € 5,00 | fles € 25,00

Chardonnay single variety, very typical but surprising on the palate with its pure fresh acidity. It tastes like more.

Gruner Veltliner Gärtling, Nigl, Kremstal, Austria, 2017

glas: € 6,50 fles: € 32,50

Very mineral. Martin Nigl is always looking for the tension between fruit, minerals and acids. Great balance and length, but most of all a great wine to enjoy!

Mahi Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough, New Zealand, 2016

glas € 6,50 | fles € 32,50

Insanely expressive is probably the best description, supported by soft and tempting fruit tones. Clear Sauvignon Blanc being fresh and pure.

Ercavio de mas que vinos Tempranillo Rosado, Tierra de Castilla, Spain, 2017

glas € 4,50 | fles € 22,50

Tempranillo as a single variety rosé, stripped of his fervor by a short note fermentation of the peels. Super rosé, beautiful salmon coloured with finesse and sophistication.

Mezzek Mavrud, Thracian Valley, Bulgaria, 2015

glas: € 5,00 fles: € 25,00

Born in the border country which formerly separated the communism of capitalism. The native Mavrud-grape is synonymous for juicy seductive wines being enjoyed with great pleasure.

Domaine des Cantarelles, Costières de Nîmes, France, 2013

€ 27,50

The combination of Syrah and Grenache, both in a starring role with the best of both grapes in the glass. Many generous fruity notes of Grenache and “spicy” notes of Syrah. Delicious!

Juan Gil 4 Meses Monastrell, Jumilla, Spain, 2016

glas € 5,50 | fles € 27,50

Irresistible supervisor of the heavier dishes, but also with cheese during the cold winter temperatures, an absolute must. Monastrell is the same grape as Mourvèdre but from this region gives a different palette. Exciting and complete, plenty of fruit but also structure.

Trentham Estate Pinot Noir, Big Rivers, Australia, 2016

glas € 6,00 | fles € 29,50

Elegance is key! Delicious Pinot Noir, a lot of cherries in the expression, a smooth drinkable wine.

Dominio de Berzal Rioja Crianza, Spain, 2014

€ 32,50

Structure is inevitable in the taste of this wine. Power combined with flexibility. Very rich and yet distinguished.

Tschida cuvée “Auslese”, Burgenland, Austria, 2015

glas: € 5,00 fles: € 40,00

The perfect balance in sweet and acidity, rich sweet tones with exactly the right freshness to enjoy this beautiful wine.

Cal Y Canto Verdejo, Tierra de Castilla, Spain, 2021

glas: € 4,50 fles: € 22,50

Freshness is key with tempting fruit expression. Typical Verdejo being tempting and beautifully crispy.

  • Huiswijn

Cal Y Canto, Tierra de Castilla, Spain, 2021

glas: € 4,50 fles: € 22,50

An excellent combination of juicy Merlot, fiery tones of Tempranillo and the spicy fruit of Syrah. Continuous generosity with great structure.

Cava Arte Latino, Catalonia, Spain

glas: € 5,50 fles: € 27,50

Great balance between fruit, accidity and a delecate mouse. The perfect aperitif!

  • Bubbels | Sparkling

Huré Frères ‘Invitation’ Brut, France

€ 65,00

Fresh, pure and kristal clear with a delicate mousse and beautiful concentrate

  • Champagne

California Roots Pinot Grigio, USA, 2016

glas: € 4,50 fles: € 22,50

Freshness trumps, flawless with very characteristic Pinot Grigio tones. Subtle stone fruit with the ‘bite’ of Granny Smith apple at the same time.

  • Pinot Grigio

Der kleine Bär ‘by Oliver Zeter’, Pfalz, Germany, 2019

glas: € 5,50 fles: € 27,50

Innovative German, delicious mineral with aromatic characters. Dry and expressive!

Arindo Verdejo, Rueda, Spain, 2018

glas: € 5,50 fles: € 27,50

The most juicy wine on the menu! A flavor explosion of tropical fruit with a wonderful recognition of the terroir.
