Patricius Late Harvest Tokaji half bottle 2015 (1x 37.5cl)

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 a refreshing accompaniment to the Christmas pudding, the trifle, the Christmas cake and the cheeseboard. Highly recommended and at a great price.

Peller Family Estates Riesling Icewine half bottle 2013 (1x 37.5cl)

Peller Riesling has a delicate straw yellow colour with an intriguing aroma of lemon drops, quince, Bartlett pear and golden raspberries, with a touch of floral honey. On the palate this Icewine displays a luscious yet elegant mouth-feel with fruit flavours of lemon, melon, papaya, mango and orange. It has a refreshing acidity and a long length.
£32.82

Peller Family Estates Vidal Icewine half bottle 2015 (1x 37.5cl)

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.

£28.87

Pieropan Le Colombare Recioto Di Soave 2011 (1x 50cl)

An intense gold in colour, with perfumes of dried apricots and lightly toasted almonds, it has a perfectly balanced palate, with just the right level of delicate sweetness offset by a freshness on the finish.  Lovely, rich, almost exotic fruit on the palate, with a baked peaches character and long, perfumed finish.
£22.66

Quady Elysium Black Muscat 2015 (1x37.5cl)

Awarded 92 points and Highly Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their September 2017 edition review of Top 40 Californian Wines Under £40 (see blue link below).

Elysium Black Muscat 2015 - Sept 2017 Decanter review

Quady is the foremost American winery specialising entirely in dessert wines and continues to win medals worldwide. In 1983, a nearby grower brough Andrew Quady some Black Muscat grapes that were previously destined for sacremental wine at a local church. When the church ceased operations, the grower was left with truckloads of perfectly ripe grapes. Upon hearing that newcomer Quady had some success with Orange Muscat, he knocked on Quady's door and the rest as they say, is history.

The grapes - 100% Black Muscat - are grown on well drained, alluvial soils - and are crushed, chilled and allowed to macerate, in order to extract the desired aromatic and flavour compounds. Fermentation was arrested with a neutral grape brandy. This arrested fermentation preserved the delicate aromas of the fresh, ripe grapes. The wine was then aged for three months in small French oak barrels.

Elysium is a brilliant crimson purple colour with aromas of ripe berries, rose petals, strawberries and lychees. On the nose, it has an enticing aroma of Turkish Delight combined with spicy red fruits and roses. On the palate, the vibrant acidity balances beautifully with the sweetnes, making it exhilaratingly refreshing. It is excellent served chilled in small glasses with Eton mess, chocolate desserts (making this one one of the rare few that matches such things well!) and/or blue cheese. Or just pour over ice cream and enjoy!

Quady Essensia Orange Muscat 2015 (1x37.5cl)

Awarded 91 points and Highly Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their September 2017 edition review of Top 40 Californian Wines Under £40 (see blue link below).

Essensia Orange Muscat 2015 - Sept 2017 Decanter review

Quady is the foremost American winery specialising entirely in dessert wines and continues to win medals worldwide. In 1980, Andrew Quady discovered a parcel of underused Orange Muscat grapes in Reedley, California, which led him to make a wine which celebrated the intense aromas and spicy fruit flavours of the grapes. In Italy, the variety is known as Moscato Fior d'Arancio: Orange Blossom Muscat.

Here in California, it is grown in well-drained, alluvial soils, in climatic conditions ideally suited to this variety. The grapes are harvested at optimal maturity once they have reached a very high 22 Brix. The grapes were crushed, chilled and allowed to macerate. Fermentation was arrested with neutral grape brandy, lightly fortifying the wine to 15% alcohol. This arrested fermentation preserves the delicate aromas of the fresh, ripe grapes. The wine was then aged for three months in used, predominantly French, oak barrels.

Luscious sweet oranges and apricots on the palate with bittersweet orange marmalade notes which balance well with the fresh lemony finish.  Excellent served chilled in small glasses with desserts consisting of peach, pear or apricot fruits or pumpkin pie.

Santadi Latinia half bottle 2010 (1x 37.5cl)

An intense amber colour, with a delicate bouquet of flowers and honeyed fruit tones and rounded off with a slight oaky tones. Rich and mouthfilling with a fresh clean length.
£19.50

Schloss Vollrads Riesling Auslese half bottle 2010 (1x 37.5cl)

The colour is bright golden with green hints. The nose is fresh with typical mineral complexity and apple and stone fruits of great Riesling. The palate is refreshing with its fine citrus acidity to balance the lingering sweetness on the finish. The 2009 has a lovely purity of fruit flavours, with apricot, pineapple, peach flavours intermingling alongside a touch of honeyed richness.

Seifried Sweet Agnes Riesling 2015 (1x 37.5cl Half)

The not-yet-available-in-the-UK 2016 vintage was awarded 95 points and a Platinum Best In Category (Best New Zealand Sweet) at the Decanter World Wine Awards (www.decanter.com): see their August 2017 DWWA supplement (see blue link below).

We have tried and tested both the 2015 and 2016, having been fans of "The Agnes" for a good while. It is our strong opinion that there is nothing to choose between the 2015 and 2016 if you are not willing to wait for the 2016 to arrive (or even if you are).

Seifried Sweet Agnes Riesling 2016 - August 2017 Decanter review

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).

£17.10

Selvapiana Vin Santo del Chianti Rufina 2009 (1x 50cl)

Deep amber in colour with perfumes of dried fruits on the nose. This wine is intense, rich and luscious, the sweetness balanced by good acidity and concentration, ensuring a fresh finish.
£28.51

Trimbach Gewurztraminer Sgn 2007 (1x 75cl)

Apricots, white peach, lemon, rose and beeswax. A wine with unbelievable depth and rich, concentrated fruits on the palate. Brilliantly balanced by the zesty acidity with such power and fullness. Decadence in a bottle.
£99.39

Trimbach Pinot Gris Vendange Tardive 2008 (1x 75cl)

The botrytized, apricot and mango-scented wine has bags of elegance. It is medium bodied, beautifully structured and very well-balanced. White peaches are explicitly evident adding complexity to this powerful, delicate and silky smooth wine.
£30.87

Vondeling Sweet Carolyn 2012 (1x 50cl)

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.

£15.60
