Tasting Notes
Tasting Notes

A dark nose, delightfully savoury, of red and darker fruits, fresh and nutty. And there’s a scent like dried herbs and undergrowth after rain. The palate is very firm, cool and backward. A demure wine, long and mineral, of sustained grip. This has a classiness about it, is highly credible. Tim Atkin scored it 93/100. 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.
