Tasting Notes
Tasting Notes

A super-defined nose of salted Golden Delicious apples and dry, spiced fruits. There's a touch of grapefruit pithiness about this, along with a resinous complexity. In fact this is an extremely complex thing to nose: a fascination. The palate offers great cut from very near the front. There's fine saline definition to the firm core of pithy acidity. Real spice here. And the energy is notable: great vim enclosed within. A very long thing this, through which runs a thread of green lemon, firm acidity. And then it comes together into lasting, even grip. Bowes Wine original note

Sweetness Explained
Sweetness Explained


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.
