Fine French Champagnes 

 
   

DOM PERIGNON

Fresh, crystalline, and sharp, the first nose unveils an unusual dimension, an aquatic vegetal world with secret touches of white pepper and gardenia. The wine then reveals airy, gentle richness before exhaling peaty scents.
On the palate, the attack bursts forth, and matures into a sensual fullness that winds around itself, like a tendril of foliage. Notes of aniseed and dried ginger linger on the skin of fruit (pear and mango), more textured than ripe. The finish gradually unfurls and then settles, smooth, mellow, all-encompassing.
An indefinable je ne sais quoi, never upsetting the integrity of the wine, has worked its charm.
(Richard Geoffroy, Dom Perignon Chef de Cave)

Altogether a very special bottle of fizz!!!!

   

MOET & CHANDON Champagne Brut Imperial

As the world's leading champagne, Moet & Chandons contemporary appeal echoes over 260 years of primacy in the Champagne region. Brut Imperial offers a balanced assemblage of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, disclosing a succession of elegant and harmonious sensations.

A subtle, drier style champagne, pale yellow in colour with shades of green, delicately vinous with a lime and vine blosson attack.

Predominantly Pinot characteristics being very ample on the paalate with a discreet finish. Very consistent quality. An aperitif wine which also accompanies fish dishes.

The archetypal marque of the best known of all the Champagne houses!!!

   
 
   

MUMM Brut "Cordon Rouge" Non Vintage Reims

A clear, pale straw colour with fairly active bubbles and a creamy-silky texture. Clean, fresh, star, lightly fruity, Chardonnay, apples, citrus, grapefruit, yeast, toast and roasted coffee aromas are all words that spring to mind. Very well balanced with a pleasantly lingering finish. The Mumm Red Stripe has been a popular favourite for many years. This crowd pleaser is very smooth and round, ideal for those with a preference for a light taste.

 

 What they say about us;

If you are in Namibia you need to visit the Raft
I love the Raft,  I have been there about a dozen times over the last 2 years and always look forward to coming back.  Great staff, great manager and tonight I finally met the owner Sarah who is just lovely.   I love this place, if you are in Namibia then you need to come to the Raft, Its the best place to eat in town. I recommend it to everyone I know.  The food is excellent, the view is spectacular, its a great place to spend a night with your family or freinds.  I have been here about a dozen times over the past couple of years and always look forward to coming back.  If I had one complaint it would have to be - the Crocodile was off the menu... (sorry, but I do love the Bushmans Platter with the Crocodile)  Thank you to you all, I look forward coming back next week before returning to the UK.  David Carroll Director Purple Pear Creations Web Design Ltd UK  PS Get yourself a Facebook page so we can all like everything about the Raft...
