Tasting Notes
Tasting Notes

A pale and very clear lemon yellow in the glass. Aromas are distinct and clearly defined. It offers up varietal scents of lemon and earth, along with hints of spice and a grapefruit pithiness. And there’s a blatant minerality going on here. Nuts skins, pear later. Really good weight of fruit in the mouth, but superb tension too. That tension is all about the citrus freshness: the pithy grapefruit thing comes to mind again. But that freshness is concealed within the fruit density. Grip starts early, pushes forward, rising into a lemon-soaked, serious ending. An earthy minerality is tucked within. Very long. The afterthoughts are all of mineral volcanic soils. A stunner. 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.
