Tasting Notes
Tasting Notes

"pale yellow, flintstone robe. The bouquet is broad, and really spreads across. It offers a honeyed fullness, has latent depth and power, with a seasoning like a sea breeze with almond behind, and a tangerine or mandarin zest, almost into a fuller Bergamot air. After two hours open, ripe pear pushes to the front. I get the immediate sense that this wine is shutting down: it bears a full gras, but is not very expressive. Its roundness is safe and sound - it carries a dried fruits flavour that has drifts of vanilla in it, with nutty late stages that culminate in a grounded, firm close, a pocket of chew and grip. Hibernation beckons. It is somewhat like a sturdy white Burgundy. Its robust nature is accentuated by air, and it goes well with an egg, quails`egg dish. 14°. 2032-34." John Livingstone-Learmonth

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.
