Dock Kitchen’s wine list features bottles from classic regions alongside some more esoteric and unusual choices. Organic, biodynamic, natural and wines from some of the world’s top producers feature on our list. We like to make sure our wine list reflects the food we are cooking in the kitchen and we will often get in special wines to pair with our set dinners.

We work with London’s best wine merchants and both Tom and Sue spend a lot of time making sure that what goes on merits its place on our finely honed "short" list.

 

 

Prosecco Frizzante, De Faveri, Veneto, Italy NV  £6.5/£32

Dry and crisp with plenty of ripe green apple flavours. No added sugar to mask unripe fruit as is often the case.

 

Veuve Cliquot Ponsardin, Champagne, France NV  £13/£75

VC is a blend of two-thirds black grapes (Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier) for body, balanced with one-third Chardonnay for elegance. 


Vermentino, Les Vignes de l’Eglise Languedoc 2012  £5.5/£20

Should really be labelled ‘Rolle’: the French name for Vermentino. This is an excellent, dry, citrusy, characterful wine. 

 

Riesling, Thalberg, Domaine Roland Schmidtt, Alsace 2012  £40

An excellent wine from 30-40 year old vines lower down the hillside of Altenberg de Bergbieten, and facing West. Fragments of gypsum can be clearly seen here weathered out on the surface. The wine has the same pitch and flavours as the Glintzberg, but the older vines give a juice that is just a little denser with a touch more structure.


‘Eclisse’ (Grillo), Cantine Urso, Sicilia 2010  £28

Made from the Sicilian grape, Grillo. Intense golden yellow in colour this is a delicious rich white with flavours of crisp apples, pears, grapefruit and melon, underpinned by a refreshing acidity. A bit of bottle age adds to the depth and complexity of the wine. Superb value at this price. 


Can Rafols dels Caus ‘Terraprima Blanc’ (Xarel lo, Riesling), Penedes, Spain 2012  £8.75/£33

Made mainly of the local grape Xarel.lo, this wine is a pure mirror of the landscape where the grapes are grown. Extremely mineral and with a wild Mediterranean personality and a slightly aromatic note. 


Original Chenin Blanc, Raats, Stellenbosch, South Africa 2013 

£7.5/£28

Made mainly of the local grape Xarel.lo, this wine is a pure mirror of the landscape where the grapes are grown. Extremely mineral and with a wild Mediterranean personality and a slightly aromatic note.


Chateau Beaulieu, Coteaux d'aix-en-Provence, France 2012  £9/£34

Brisk and delicate with elegant red fruits, svoury depth and that charasmatic, mineral freshness. It is a distinguished rose of style and finesse.

 

 


Camden Brewery Hell’s Lager  £4.5


Brasserie du Mont Blanc  £5.5

 

Mocanda Notting Hill Blonde  £5


Mahrsbräu Wiesse Beer  £5.5

 

Isatsegi Cloudy Basque Cider  £5


Moulin de Gassac Classic, Pays d’Hérault,

Languedoc 2013  £5.5/£20

From the highly esteemed Mas de Daumas Gassac

estate comes this delicious, bright and vibrant red.

Lots of berry fruit & some fine crunchy tannins.

 

Crozes-Hermitage, Etienne Pochon,

Rhone 2011  £38

Etienne Pochon committed to making wines in

a Natural method with the best fruit and this is an

absolute joy. Lovely ripe floral nose mixed with

white pepper character, very juicy berryish and

playful, a good balance of fruit and rounded tannins

with a fresh, forest berry fruit finish. Simple but so

enjoyable and moreish.


Alberese (Sangiovese, Trebbiano),

Fattoria Di Sammontana, Tuscany 2013  

£27

A light Tuscan red made from Sangiovese with

a touch of
 Trebbiano Toscano. A lively, bright

young wine which is easy drinking and enjoyable

with a selection of snacks or a full meal. 


Viña Zorzal (Graciano), Navarra, Spain

2012  £28

A delicious inky from Navarra in northern Spain.

Made from the indigenous Graciano grape, this

is a juicy wine with blackcurrant, fruit peel, jam

and raspberries on the palate. This gives way to

red fruit on the long finish and nice rich tannins.

Slightly bitter and green notes which are true

to Graciano.

 

Vermell, Celler del Roure, (Garnacha

Tintorera, Monastrell, Mando)

DO ValenciaSpain 2012  £36

A rich and fruity red with big red berry flavours,

hints of spices and chocolate, smooth tannins

and a long lasting finish. Aged in amphorae

buried into the ground to enhance the character

of the wine.


Enira (Merlot, Syrah, Petit Verdot,

Cabernet Sauvignon), Bessa Valley,

Bulgaria 2009  £40

When Jancis Robinson says about a wine

‘I enjoyed it over two nights and kept coming

back to it from several other open bottles’ we

think it’s worth taking note. A big, robust

Bulgarian red made in a very opulent Bordeaux 

style by master winemakers, with heaps of

blackcurrant and spice flavours. Stick St Emilion

on the label and this  wine would be at least 

double the price.


‘Armador’ Merlot, Odfjell, Maipo Valley,

Chile 2011  £7.75/£29

A full-bodied, smooth drinking Merlot from the

Maipo Valley, one of Chile’s most prestigious

wine-growing areas. Plums, strawberries ad figs

on the nose with some floral notes. Fruit takes

precedence on the palate with soft tannins, fresh

acidity and flavours such as coffee and vanilla.

 

Pinot noir, Glen Carlou, Paarl, South Africa

2012  £9/£34

A very refined Pinot Noir from a winemaker whose

Chardonnay we’ve been enjoying for some time

now. Notes of red cherries, strawberries and vanilla

on the nose with black cherry and a bit of spice on the

palate.
