Tasting Notes
Tasting Notes

Very smoky dark and spicy nose of piquant cherry fruit, along with a note of pot pourri. Entry is plush and very cool. Then it becomes floral, nutty and fresh, with flavours of red and darker spiced fruits. There is some very fine, integrated, cool tannins. Cool wine altogether, in fact, showing nice spiced sustain. Elegant and lovely rosso. 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.
