  • 2008 Muscat de Beaumes de Venise ‘Cuvée Les Trois Fonts’, Domaine de Coyeux – 375mlDessert Wine, Port & Dessert Wine

    2008 Muscat de Beaumes de Venise ‘Cuvée Les Trois Fonts’, Domaine de Coyeux – 375ml

    £1250

    A delicious sweet wine, with notes of lychee, candied apricot and pear, tropical pineapple complemented by honey undertones. Rich, smooth and sweet on the palate, beautifully balanced by freshness and elegance.

    The vineyard provides naturally healthy conditions, due to its altitude, exposure to the sun and the microclimate of the vineyard and enables gentle methods of cultivation to be employed, in order to maintain a healthy vineyard. The vines are planted in alluvial, sandy soils. Excessive buds and leaves are removed in the spring to aerate the strains and increase the leaf’s surface area exposed to the sun. Debudding reduces the production of berries and concentrates the flavours and aromas in those remaining. The living soils, where microbial life creates organic soil enrichment, nourishes the vines.

  • 2022 ‘Elysium’ Black Muscat, Quady – 375mlDessert Wine, Port & Dessert Wine

    2022 ‘Elysium’ Black Muscat, Quady – 375ml

    £1500

    Elysium is a brilliant crimson-purple colour with aromas of ripe berries, rose petals, strawberries and lychees. The vibrant acidity balances beautifully with the sweetness of this wine, making it very refreshing.    This wine is amazing with Chocolate desserts and cheese.   This really is one of those wow wines and always elicits the same response – wow!

    This wine also has a great birth story – In 1983 a nearby grower brought Andrew Quady some Black Muscat grapes that were previously destined for sacramental 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.

  • 2018 Noble Riesling ‘Godfreys Creek Reserve’, Saint Clair, 375mlDessert Wine, Port & Dessert Wine

    2018 Noble Riesling ‘Godfreys Creek Reserve’, Saint Clair, 375ml

    £1850

    Saint Clair Godfrey’s Creek Noble Reserve Riesling is a deliciously complex dessert wine, with a bouquet of clover honey, cinnamon and beeswax. Luscious and silky on the palate with rich orange, apricot and cocoa notes leading to a long, smooth finish.

    The fruit for Godfrey’s Creek is grown in the heart of the Marlborough Valley. The vineyard is situated on the Wairau Valley floor, where it experiences early morning dew and light afternoon breezes; a successful combination in the production of Noble Riesling. Select grape bunches were left to hang on the vine until late in the season, promoting raisining and botrytis. The grapes were hand-harvested once the desired level of sugar had been reached. This wine is only made in vintages when the season facilitates the extra hanging time required for the growth of botrytis on the grapes. The vineyard is cultivated according to sustainable practices and is accredited to Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand.

  • 2019 Tokaji Aszu 5 Puttonyos, Chateau Dereszla, 375mlDessert Wine, Port & Dessert Wine

    2019 Tokaji Aszu 5 Puttonyos, Chateau Dereszla, 375ml

    £3900

    Situated in the heart of the Tokaj region, the origins of Chateau Dereszla can be traced back to the 18th century. The Estate owns 27 hectares spread across the designated “Grand Cru” area, and the large diversity of soils throughout these vineyard holdings is a crucial factor in the complexity of their wines. The historic cellars were fully renovated in 2003 and equipped with state-of-the-art winemaking technology.

    Château Dereszla is world-renowned for its sweet wines made from grapes affected by Botrytis cinerea, also known as “noble rot”.   This 2019 Aszú 5 Puttonyos is made from the Furmint and Hárslevelű grape varieties which are native to Hungary.     In the glass, the wine is deep, the roasted fruit notes are complemented by lively, fresh apricot and quince. Luscious yet sprightly, with a beautiful blossomy scent and a fresh finish. Glazed peach and honey overflow from the nose, counterbalanced by lovely earthy nuances.

    Château Dereszla Aszú 5 Puttonyos is an excellent example of traditional Tokaji wines and is a delicious and elegant dessert in its own right.

    To make Château Dereszla Aszú 5 Puttonyos, the grapes are harvested by hand to be able to carefully select the grapes affected by Botrytis cinerea, with the final amount of sugar measured in puttonyos.  A puttonyo is a kind of basket with an approximate capacity of 25 kg. It is used as a measure to work out the quantity noble rot clusters, which they call Aszú, and which are subsequently poured into the base wine in 136-litre barrels. The minimum quantity for this class of wines is 3 puttonyos and the maximum is 6. The more puttonyos it contains, the sweeter it will be.  The resulting wine ages for three years in Hungarian oak barrels.

  • Sotto di Ferro, Charles Melton Wine Republic Heros Dessert Wine, Port & Dessert Wine

    Sotto di Ferro, Charles Melton

    £4500

    Charles Melton is the only Australian producer of a vin-santo styled dessert wine, he calls it, Sotto di Ferro.   Made from Pedro Ximenez and Muscadelle grapes that are hung and dried in bunches under the rafter of old iron sheds on the Melton property.   From the trickle of juice gathered from the shrivelled grapes comes this wine showing rich, luscious dried apricot and nut characters.  This is not a wine to rush.   Take your time and allow it to impress you with its sweet complexity that develops in the glass.

    For those interested in the winemaking process this from the winery:  Pedro Ximenez and Muscadelle bunches are carefully hand-picked and placed in small crates before being taken to our ‘hanging shed’. There, an experienced team tie six to eight bunches of grapes onto strings which are then suspended from the rafters for up to eight weeks.  The grapes dehydrate naturally as they are exposed to air, and when the team at Charles Melton Wines deems the grapes to be concentrated enough, the bunches will be pressed in a basket press. The juice is then yeasted and fermented in small 60-litre old oak casks known as ‘Caratelli’ for 18 months. After fermentation completes, the wine will remain in barrel for a further four years before it is bottled.

  • 2008 Pinot Gris Vendange Tardive, Trimbach Wine Republic Heros Dessert Wine, Port & Dessert Wine, White Wine

    2008 Pinot Gris Vendange Tardive, Trimbach

    £4500

    This wine is made from botrytised noble Pinot Gris, hand-selected and from the best vineyards. and is only made in only exceptional years.

    We love this tasting note from Robert Parker: ‘A remarkable nose – vegetarians beware! – suggests smoked pork, sauteed veal sweetbreads, and truffle-studded foie gras, and the palate is just as sinfully rich as the nose implies, encompassing as well a honeyed intensity of quince and Mirabelle preserves; white Burgundy-like toasted brioche; and hints of brown spices. This is a meal unto itself, and for all of its amplitude reveals a sense of buoyancy.’

  • 2007 Chateau Doisy-Vedrines 2eme Cru Classe, BarsacDessert Wine

    2007 Chateau Doisy-Vedrines 2eme Cru Classe, Barsac

    £4500

    Anybody who has tasted the sensational 1989 Doisy-Védrines will want to snap up the equally good 2007 in an instant. As well as being one of the sweetest wines of the vintage it is exceptionally elegant and well-balanced. The nose is marked by intense, icy-cool tropical citrus while the rich yet fresh palate has wonderfully pure, sweet creamy pineapple fruit, plenty of botrytis and fine balancing acidity. The finish is incredibly long and precise. Made from 95% Sémillon and 5% Sauvignon Blanc, this is a magically sensual Sauternes at an outstanding price.

    2017 Grand Constance, Groot Constantia, 375ml

    Groot Constantia is the oldest wine estate in South Africa and has a remarkable history including having King Louis Philippe of France as their best customer!   Today they make exceptional wines in a sub-region of the Western cape called Constantia which is near Cape Town.

    The touch of red muscat gives the wine a beautiful amber colour. The nose of the 2017 Grand Constance shows an abundance of ripe and dried fruit, like crushed pineapple, apricot and raisins. The ageing in barrels adds some wood spice and a hint of honey to the wine. The dried fruit and honey follow on the palate, and a fresh acidity balances the sweetness.

    The Muscat grapes are grown in a vineyard block right next to the famous Manor House, which is situated at 80 to 90 metres above sea level. The low yielding vines are planted on a south-east facing slope. The climate is Mediterranean with cooling breezes from the Atlantic Ocean encouraging balance and complexity in the grapes.
