Here’s another new watering hole with potential: Vina Del Rey, a wine bar in Bangsar South’s Nexus complex.


Impressive Wine List

Vina Del Rey has an immensely impressive list of wine offered by the glass; we lost count of how many exactly, but they comprise varieties that span France, Argentina, Chile, New Zealand & more, mostly clocking in between RM25 & RM35 each.


For this round, we tried South Africa’s Barista Pinotage, a fascinating creation with rich notes of both coffee & chocolate. It’d be fun to pair this with food – Vina Del Rey hasn’t launched its kitchen, but this wine might fare fairly well with meat & cheeses.

Vina-Del-Rey-at-Nexus-Bangsar-South3We’ve had coffee as tequila in this post, plus coffee as wine, so here’s one more for the road: Coffee as beer.


Coffee As Beer

Scotland’s Harvietoun Old Engine Oil English Porter-style beer, with a scent of coffee grounds & a flavour of creamy coffee, buttered toffee & burnt toast. Reputedly the perfect beer with which to make an ice cream float.
