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.
Virtually black in colour, with a rose-like aroma, very intense on the palate and full of fantastic rich velvety fruit. One of the few wines that can stand up to Christmas puddings.
The 2009 Castelnau de Suduiraut is a hugely intense experience, with immense, honeyed sweetness counterbalanced by an involving complexity. Great with poached pears.
Enticing and expressive on the nose, which offers ripe peach and lychee and fig, alongside subtle nutty notes. Intensely concentrated flavours of honey and ripe nectarine with a citrus lift.
A golden hued wine exudes aromas of ripe stone fruits, candied summer fruits and honey. Luxurious sweetness and spicy vanillin characters layer and coat the palate before a clean and fresh finish.
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.
A medium amber colour with a nose of orange peel, figs and cinnamon. The sugar on the palate is well-balanced by the fine acidity, leading to a clean, refreshing finish. Great with poached pears.
Tokaji Aszú is the original 'noble rot' wine. Made from a blend of 'botrytis' grapes it matches (and often surpasses) Sauternes.
