Tasting Notes
Tasting Notes

This is exceedingly embryonic for the time being. Aromas are quite shy, of lemon and something more exotic. It's the palate that shows all the class here. Great intensity and freshness. If the Rayne Vigneau could be drunk now, this needs years of cellaring and will keep and keep. A great, clean thrust of a palate. An intense and super concentrated wine. This is very sweet, but the freshness, spicy and minerality contrive to make it almost airy. A seriously class act. 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.
