Comforting, indulgent and luxurious, sweet wines are a deliciously decadent treat any time of year but they really come into their own in winter. Think a classic Tarte Tatin with a luscious Sauternes to round off your meal or a vintage port with cheese, enjoyed by the fire. These are some of the great wine styles of the world, historically revered but all-too-often overlooked today. We think they are due a revival and there is no better time to enjoy them than now.
Typical botrytis characters of marmalade, honey and dried fruits are supported by a strong acid backbone that gives balance and length. A perfect match with cheese, walnuts and dried fruits.
