Tasting Notes
Tasting Notes

"Mid gold. Spicy linseed nose but also pure and peachy orange fruit. Delicate and much lighter in texture in the mouth and less intoxicating. Finesse, purity and delicacy on the finish and a bitter orange aftertaste to enhance the freshness, even though the acidity is (analytically) quite moderate." Julia Harding MW

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.
