Tasting Notes
Tasting Notes

There enormous subtlety to this wine on both nose and palate. The mineral component is easy to discern, along with scents of orchard fruit – both fresh and dried – and some herbal input. The palate offers orchard fruit, too, but majors more on citrus, with its grapefruit twang and floral complexity. It is vastly long in the mouth and enormously satisfying to drink now. With bottle age it will gain exponentially in fascination. 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.
