Fix St. James: Wine Bar Review
It is a straight forward and unpretentious wine list (the introductory line states: “Wine is nothing more than fermented grape juice…”) that is much easier to navigate than other tomes I have come across. Wines are introduced by the glass on the first page and arranged by varietal for the remainder of the list (apart from one small section ” The Variety Is Irrelevant Wines”).
As we all arrived at different times, we started with a flask of Silent Way Pinot Noir, Highlands Vic. 2014 ($38, 500ml). The flask in question is actually a laboratory’s conical flask which appealed to our group of science nerds. The pinot had an earthy woody aroma and bright fruit with forest floor notes on the palate.
