description about these wines

organic wine

over the years organic wines have gained significance because of growing health and environmental consciousness – as a result wine producers all over the world are looking into creating such wines

to be classified as ‘organic wine’ (‘vin organique’ in french) grapes must be sourced from a vineyard that follows organic viticulture – utilizing naturally occurring substances instead of the industrially produced chemicals used in conventional viticulture – the idea is to take the ‘prevention rather than cure’ approach to grape growing creating a healthy biodiversity – soil is considered paramount

another criterion is that organic wines can be produced without addition of sulfur dioxide (SO2) – although very few countries legally enforce this

rule as SO2 is still considered the most effective anti-spoilage agent

biodynamic wine

followers of biodynamic viticulture describe it as an advanced form of organic viticulture – it is based on the theories of the austrian philosopher rudolf steiner – biodynamic calls for a holistic approach aimed at achieving ecological self-sufficiency but also including ethical - spiritual considerations – the vineyard is seen as a living organism which can be maintained in a self-sustaining way – potentially creating a unique growing environment

both organic – biodynamic winegrowing are grouped under a relatively new concept known as ‘sustainable viticulture’ which ensures the avoidance of any sort of environmental degradation while maintaining the economic viability of the vineyard

organic and biodynamic wines are listed in this wine list with a symbol

konotta cigar selection

our fine selection of cuban cigars include some of the greatest names in the industry – there is a size and a shape to meet the demands of the most discerning smoker, yet simultaneously please the palate of a novice who is just discovering the marvellous secrets of a carefully hand rolled cigar – in the words of the legendary zino davidoff: “the cigar is something that commands respect – it is made for all the senses, for all the pleasures, for the nose, the palate, the fingers, the eyes... a good cigar contains the promise of a totally pleasurable experience”

cohiba – siglo I – petit corona 35

this little smoke delivers loads of character – it is full bodied – with spicy black coffee flavors and an aftertaste

pair with a smooth and spicy golden rum or an aged red wine

preferably the more robust varietals such barbaresco, nebbiolo or cabernet franc

cohiba – siglo II – petit corona 45

perfect combustion – draw and of course taste – it’s tasty, creamy, smooth with a grassy flavour combined with hints of fresh beans

pair with an aged rich red wine – preferably a merlot or cabernet sauvignon

cohiba – robusto – robusto 55

the flavor is very toasty – marked by peppery and woody notes creamy finish

pair with either a heavily smoked islay whisky or even a bitter herbal liqueur such as amaro averna – this stick goes through layer after layer of bittersweet and intensive earthy tones – not for the faint hearted

montecristo – #2 – torpedo 55

started rather mild in the first third with spicy and creamy characters in the second third with rich and powerful woody and cedar flavors in the last third lovely strong palette of woody/leather flavors

pair with any one of the mellower single malts from the scottish lowlands

montecristo – #3 – corona 38

the taste and smoke of #3 consists of coffee, cocoa and vanilla flavours blended in great harmony with a medium tobacco taste

pair with a slightly chilled glass of port – the syrupy sweetness of rich stewed fruits

montecristo – #4 – short corona 35

numerous flavours can be detected in any cigar, but many smokers

have noticed a heavy earthy undertone with tangy chocolate and coffee notes the strength of the cigar is classified as “medium to full”

pair with a dry sherry or an aged grappa – the # 4 is a highly versatile smoke that appeals to both amateur smokers and the most seasoned of aficionados

montecristo – #5 – petit corona 33

cocoa and mocha flavors vary from a dark to light chocolate with a hint of espresso

pair with any bourbon – the characteristic honeyed tones of bourbon make a remarkable companion
