Allegrini Giovanni  Recioto Classico 2012 (1x50cl)

The bursting sweetness is kept in check by acidity and tannins, creating an approachable wine of great finesse. This wine, with its unique concentration, is named after the founder of the winery, Giovanni Allegrini, who elected this as his preferred wine.

Barbi Vin Santo Doc half bottle 2011 (1x37.5cl)

The vineyards, which lie at an altitude of 250m above sea level, face south for maximum sun exposure. Owner and winemaker Raymond Miquel has built a reputation for the fine quality of his Muscats.

This fortified sweet wine - vin doux naturel - is shimmering golden in the glass with an intense, complex nose of grapes, pear, rose petals and citrus. On the palate it is sweet, rich, powerful with a balancing zesty acidity on the long finish.

Capezzana Vin Santo Di Carmignano half bottle 2009 (1x 37.5cl)

The Capezzana estate, 24 kilometres north west of Florence, is owned by the Contini Bonacossi family. The younger generation is now firmly in charge of the estate's 100 hectares of vineyard, with daughter Benedetta Contini Bonacossi as winemaker. The wines and the olive oil have an elegance which marks this estate out from the crowd.

The grapes for the Vin Santo are grown on various vineyards on the 104 hectare estate. These vineyards face east, are around 150-200 metres above sea level and have schistous-clay soils. They are currently being converted to organic production.

The 2009 growing season was excellent. A mild spring was followed by a hot and sunny summer, allowing the grapes to reach optimum maturity. 

The grapes were dried on cane mats in a well ventilated loft until January 2010. The must was then fermented slowly in small oak and chestnut casks for at least four years. After ageing for five years in small chestnut and cherry casks, the wine remained in bottle for at least three months before release.

Intense golden yellow in colour with concentrated perfumes on the nose; notes of candied fruit, sweet almonds and fruit cake. Rich and intensely sweet on the palate, it has dried apricot and fig flavours which are balanced by a lovely touch of freshness. Very long and spicy on the finish.

A lingering sweetness accompanies the mellow, satisfying finish. Serve at 15degrees centigrade.

Darenberg The Noble Botryotinia Fuckeliana Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2015 (1x 37.5cl)

See blue link below for the fiche technique/technical note from the winemakers themselves.

D'Arenberg The Noble Botryotinia Fuckeliana 2015 - fiche technique

Another cracking dessert wine in Noble series from d' Arenberg, this time with Semillon and Sauvignon: an Antipodean take on Sauternes, if you like.

For the avoidance of doubt, the scientific name for Botrytis (= 'noble rot') is botryotinia fuckeliana, named in honour of German botanist, Karl Fuckel. Living off a vineyard he acquired in the 1850's, Fuckel dedicated his life to the scientific study of plants.

A racy nose to start, citrus blossom, fresh grass and marmalade mix with tropical fruits and ripe, sweet passion-fruit. It’s an heady mix of complexity and decadence. The palate offers a spicy, zesty entry with the texture of lemon curd, all velvety and smooth with citrusy acid keeping it all in line. Layers of flavor keep on coming; includ-ing spicy orange cake, minerals and herbs.
