Wines & Bubbly
The red wine production process involves extraction of both flavour and colour components from the grape skin. Red wines are mainly made from dark-coloured grape varieties. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Pinot Noir are popular red wine varietals that are widely well-received across the world.Shop Now
Fermentation of non-coloured grape pulp (typically yellow or green) produces white wine. Some of the well-known white wine varieties are Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Riesling.Shop Now
Dessert wines, sometimes called pudding wines, are sweet wines typically served with dessert. Moscato and Port wines are hot favourites and a crowd pleaser when it comes to sweet wines.
Fortified wines can be made in either a sweet or a dry style. The middle-ground of medium-sweet or medium-dry is covered in almost literally all of the fortified wine categories (note: they do vary from one producer to the next); for now, we temporarily categorise our fortified wines under sweet but if any of our fortified wines lean towards the dry style, we’d be sure to place a footnote!Shop Now
Sparkling wines can be made in the traditional method, which is also known as “the Champagne method”, but these wines cannot be deemed nor termed as Champagne because they are not produced in the Champagne region of France. Luckily for The Cellar Door, we carry both champagnes and sparkling wines to please our customers!Shop Now
The rib includes some of the finest cuts of the cow — the prime rib, short rib, ribeye steak and ribeye roasts, and is known for its juiciness, tenderness, superb marbling, and flavour. The rib cut refers to ribs 6 through 12 on the cow and are best cooked over dry heat for long periods of time.Shop now
If you ask for a sirloin in a restaurant you will get striploin. The striploin, also known as sirloin, is found along the spine in the hindquarter, running from the ribs to the rump. There are two striploins and they sit just above the tenderloin where the eye fillet is cut. The sirloin roast is tender and succulent, it can be further cut into steaks. The sirloin, which is less tender than short loin, but more flavorful, can be further divided into top sirloin and bottom sirloin.
The chuck contains a significant amount of connective tissue, which can be a little tough, but very flavourful. This cut yields great value cuts such as chuck roast, flat iron steak and chuck arm roast. .Shop now
