Tasting Notes
Tasting Notes

"Really deep in colour, the paler band at the rim very, very narrow indeed. There's a roasted aspect to the black, smoky fruit. The aromas are quite broad and add some deep floral scents. There are notes of chocolate and spice and snappy, black, sweet plums. The palate is dense and gives instantly lip-smacking freshness. There's a delightful purity of snappy plum and black cherry fruit and very fine, integrated tannin. A self-assured persistence. There's something cassis hidden in the mid-palate. A lovely limestone minerality appears at the finish. Just utterly delicious wine." Bowes Wine original note

Sweetness Explained
Sweetness Explained

Sweetness

All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab. 

Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
