Tokaji Aszú is the original 'noble rot' wine. Made from a blend of 'botrytis' grapes it matches (and often surpasses) Sauternes.
The 2009 Castelnau de Suduiraut is a hugely intense experience, with immense, honeyed sweetness counterbalanced by an involving complexity. Great with poached pears.
A deep and youthful ruby colour, with an intense, fruity nose crammed with blackberry, cassis, cherry and plum aromas. The palate full-bodied and round, with a luscious, velvety texture.
An aroma reminiscent of orange blossom and apricots. The palate is rich and sweet, with vibrant peachy and orangey fruit. Ends with a lingering, refreshing aftertaste.
Lucious, rich, sweet and fragrant this is full of intense flavours of dried fruit and caramel.
This wine is named because it is made in the 'passito' method, where the harvested grapes are laid out on straw mats and allowed to dry for around 4 weeks, concentrating the sugars. Great with pears.
