Description

Driven by the work of natural wine evangelist Isabelle Legeron MW, Hibiscus picked up the natural wine baton relatively early on the restaurant scene.

By the glass listings are a joy: Henri Milan's 'Le Vallon' from Provence, Château Le Puy St-Emilion, Casino Tajvin's Barbera d'Asti 'La Bandita'.

Orange wines get good representation from Colombaia in Tuscany to Radikon's thrilling Chardonnay/Friulano blend 'Slating'. Piedrasassi's skin contact Sauvignon Blanc from the Central Coast sums up the daring and innovative wines that are in the cellar.

A list that doesn't waver from its principles at any point and will be a real education for many, even self-confessed wine nerds. Fascinating.
