A warm dry summer followed by a cool August and September allowed a long ripening process. Pleasantly fresh nose showing jammy notes and candied fruit (apricots, figs) and a round and smooth palate, with candied notes and a
Attractive bright golden yellow in the glass, with an intensely aromatic nose of white petals, ripe peaches and lightly spiced pears. Medium bodied with a delicious honeyed richness of concentrated grapey fruit flavours, delicately balanced with cleansing acidity and a youthful, lively pettiance that lifts the palate and keeps the wine refreshing and dangerously easy to drink!
Deep cherry pink in colour, the Moscato Rosa is intensely perfumed, with aromas of spice and rose petals, a touch of turkish delights and some orange peel. On the palate it is sweet but not cloying, with a fresh, orange zest balancing the soft red berry fruit character. Long and fragrant to the finish, Moscato Rosa has excellent ageing capacity.
This is a Tokaji with a little more subtlety than you might expect. Made with the usual mix of Tokaji varieties, predominantly Furmint, this is a lightly sweet dessert “sticky”. The honey and fruit flavours of traditional Tokaji are all here, but accompanied by a greater focus on freshness and acidity than is usual. Those who find the full attack of Tokaji and many dessert wines just a little too much will find this refreshing. Highly recommended and at a great price.
A gold yellow colour with an aromatic bouquet of lemon marmalade, carmelized oranges, golden pineapple and a touch of honey. A rich, medium to full-bodied wine with explosive flavours of honey, golden pineapple, star anise and brown sugar. Sweet citrus and star fruit linger on the finish.
This is special stuff. Made with extreme care by Seifried in NZ’s South Island, the Sweet Agnes is pure, late-harvested Riesling: left on the vine, the grapes gain even greater ripeness, lose moisture and so become incredibly sweet (the wine’s sugar content is ~180g/litre). It’s almost amber in colour, and its flavours include lemon sherbet, marmalade, tropical fruits and butterscotch. It’s quite irresistible on its own and delicious with fruity puddings or tangy cheeses (particularly blue cheeses – it really is amazing with these).
Colour: A multi-layered wine with a deep amber colour.
Nose: The nose delights with soft peach aromas, fresh pineapple and ripe apricot. This almost overwhelming bouquet is aptly supported by floral jasmine and fynbos honey.
Palate: The mouth-watering sweetness is cut by tangy acidity to provide a lingering after taste.
Kaleidoscope hues of amber and gold, irresistible flavours of butterscotch, raisin and treacle. Be seduced by the world’s most celebrated and decadent dessert wine. Nectar for puddings. Silver medal IWSC 2011.
A rich golden colour with inviting perfumes of honey, citrus rind and stone fruits. A full-bodied wine showing appealing juicy stone fruits alongside gentle vanilla complexity and lively citrus acidity. Perfectly balanced with a lingering finish.
