Tasting Notes
Tasting Notes

Fruit on the nose here has good snap, is red and black, offering undercurrents of earth and spice. There’s a wisp of orange thread running through it, adding complexity and that complexity continues on the entry of the palate, which is rich and plush: a product of this warmer vintage. In the mouth it quickly collects a core of earth-textured structure: rich, assertive, earthy tannin. There’s bold spice to be found here. It’s a nuttily-structured wine of slightly creamy-dark, delicious fruit, supported by big, upright, nutty grip. There’s a spice at the back that is almost peppery and it is dotted with liquorice throughout. A boldly dense and incisively fresh wine. Bowes Wine original note

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.
