Tasting Notes
Tasting Notes

Lovely dark aromas consist of sauvages black fruits, along with a distinct whiff of chestnut and a hint of singe. This is wonderfully defined in the mouth, upright and showing smoky and delicious dark fruits. And the structure, held within, is piquant-fresh with its mineral thrust. Just fabulous red wine. 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.
