Tasting Notes
Tasting Notes

Really fulsome aromas of super-ripe melon, herbs, citrus fruit and sweet spice. In the mouth, this very quickly picks up a very orange character, juicy fresh. It's a richly fruited thing, dense, with a core of apple acidity. This finishes crisply and loaded with spice. N.B. See the tasting video for more. Bowes Wine original note

"Smells of honeysuckle blossoms and kumquat (but over six hours, it became more and more nutty). Beautifully rounded with quite a voluptuous mouthfeel, although the wine is dry and not remotely alcoholic. Saffron-spiced kumquat and quince on the palate. Apple mint. A vibration of lime acidity, delicate lime-leaf bitters. Deep-hearted, deeply satisfying from the very beginning and all the way through the orbicular middle to the slow, shapely finish. The honeysuckle notes tumble back in on the end. Very seductive."

Sweetness Explained
Sweetness Explained


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.
