To help you in your choice of wine, you will find a number or a letter against each wine which will indicate the style of wine you are choosing.
Green Park Hotel's Wine List Tasting GuideIf it is a white wine, then a number will give an indication of how dry that wine is. For instance number 1 would tell you that the wine is very dry, number 2 would still be dry but not as dry as number 1, and so on. This follows right up to number 9, which would describe a very, very, sweet white wine. Where it becomes complicated is that most white wines are numbered between 1 and 3, and rarely go above 4!
In the case of red wines, then a letter is used to indicate how light or full-bodied the wine is. The letter A for instance would tell you that it is a light-bodied red. The letters B&C would indicate a more medium-bodied style of wine, while D&E would mean that the wine would be full-bodied.
Please just let us know in advance if you would like your choice of red wine opened in advance of you going through to the dining-room. This can be done at any stage prior to dinner.
We have tried to gently pressurise our wine suppliers to come up with as wide a choice of half bottles as possible.That said, do not worry if you find that a full bottle is too much to drink in one sitting - just leave the bottle on your table, and ask for it again the following evening. All we will need to know is your room number.
If wines of one year can no longer be supplied, we will try and offer the same wine from as near a year as possible.
