A broad nose, a touch animal and really quite smoky. A marriage of pure, fresh plum fruit and liquorice. Hints of dried fruit and muscovado sugar. A creamy, rich and broad entry of very ripe fruits. Thereafter, the palate becomes compact, very grippy and really quite dry. Very rich, square tannins. This is long and very mineral and really rather fabulous. Elegant and finesse-filled. Very wine-y. Integrated. Bowes Wine original note
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.
