  • Avery Sauvignon Blanc Marborough 2010
  • served with four rounds of canapés including prawn tempura and goats cheese crostini

Round 2

  • Te Muna Road Pinot noir 2010
  • Calvert, Central Otago Pinot Noir 2010

Round 4

  • Gimblett Gravels Te Kahu 2010
  • Gimblett Gravels Syrah 2010

Round 5

  • Sophia 2010
  • Le Sol 2010

Round 6

The wines were excellent and are available widely: Majestic (look out for special offers), Waitrose & Slurp.

Frederick’s is a wonderful restuarant in the heart of the Angel Islington, great atmosphere and superb food and service.  Highly recommended. http://fredericks.co.uk/
