The extensive wine list focuses on the regions of Alsace, Loire Valley, Burgundy, Piedmont, Wachau and Kamptal, which work particularly well with the food. In new world wines, varietals such as the Riesling, Chenin Blanc, Semillon, Gamay and Pinot Noir are chosen to enhance the flavours and enjoyment of the menu.
The examples above preclude heavier styles of wine. Whilst there are delicious full-bodied wines, the style of the dishes served at Six Penny is best suited to more subtle wines.
The food menus feature home-grown produce, hence Australian producers in particular have been chosen because of their refined style. Most of the Shiraz and Cabernet blends listed have been crafted with a less is more approach.
The wine list highlights choices that provide the best food pairing possibilities. The list includes some well known wines as well as others less so, allowing guests to enjoy wine by exploring unfamiliar varietals or regions. All wines at Six Penny are from small producers share the same principle of quality over quantity.
