"Fantastic breadth and richness. Putty, opulent and so rich!...Very lifted and dry on the end but only after the most amazing fresh fruit. Racy and sinewy. Racehorse. Fab. Palate scrub on the end." Jancis Robinson

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.
