Our honour bar at Greenmount House is there for our guests’ enjoyment. It is where guests meet to grab a cool glass of wine before dinner as the sun sets over the town, or for a night cap after dinner while planning the next day’s activities.
Greenmount Wine List
La Linda, Chardonnay 2013 Argentina
Established in 1901 by Leoncio Arizu, Bodega Luigi Bosca is the oldest family owned and run winery in Argentina. Its reputation gained over the years has made it the paradigm of Argentine wine. Medium-bodied with pure, textured tropical and pear fruits, and a mouth-watering lively finish.
San Giorgio, Pinot Grigio 2012, Italy
Breganze is an ancient viticultural center in the Vicenza province of Veneto, north-eastern Italy. The area’s Breganze DOC, awarded in 1969, covers red (rosso) and white (bianco) wines, and the well-respected Torcolato.
Light, fresh and super citrusy fruit with a lovely finish. It is a classic example of this deservedly popular wine.
Campo Castillo, Garnacha 2011, Spain
Long admired Spain’s garnacha varietal: the consistent quality of production, the tremendous range of diversity in the wines produced both stylistically and regionally, the broad complexity, and the fact that it’s never overbearing.
Depending on taste, the term ‘fruit bomb’ can be pejorative or praise. Either way, it’s not a bad description for Campo Castillo Garnacha 2011 .
Barbera, Albera 2011, Italy 2011
Barbera d’Alba is a key DOC of Piedmont, north-western Italy, famed for its tangy, cherry-like red wines made from Barbera grapes.
Ruby red with purple highlights. Elegant fruit aromas of cherries and plums with an enticing warm, spiced, smoky aroma. Berry flavours paired with spiced and sapid notes.
Foie, Prosecco, Italy
Prosecco is a sparkling white wine from north-eastern Italy, specifically the Veneto and Friuli-Venezia Giulia wine regions.
This is a frizzante offering from top producer Bisol, and is produced in the villages around Valdobbiadene.
It is typically fragrant with scents of meadow flowers and windfall pears and apples. A tongue-tingling mousse of tiny bubbles seduces with its glacial purity – crisp, cool and bracing.
