  • Brachetto D’Acqui D.O.C.G. Spumante

    £17.36£104.16

    750ml Bottles

    This delicately sweet and aromatic sparkling dessert wine is produced from Brachetto grapes grown in the hills  around Acqui Terme to the northwest of Genoa.  As a result of the ideal exposure and altitude these grapes are exposed to, the microclimate in this area helps product a wine that favours the development of aromas of typical intense bouquet but with delicate notes of musk, rose and violet. The resulting sparkling wine is sweet, well-balanced with moderate alcohol.

    Recommended combination with food: desserts, pie crust with strawberries and fruit, cream with fruits

    Serve at 10-12°C

    VINTAGE: N.V.
    GRAPE VARIETY – Brachetto
    PRODUCTION AREA – Acqui Terme, Italy

  • Aszu Tokaji

    MEGYER TOKAJI ASZÚ 5 PUTTONYOS 2014

    £35.00£105.00
     500ml Bottles 

    The aszú berries used to make this gorgeous Tokaji are harvested from the end of October through to the end of November.  The must is then fermented and aged in 220L Szerednyei oak barrels from the Zemplén hills, for 3 years, before bottling and released to market.  This vintage was a hard year in Tokaj, but through the expert winemaking techniques and careful grape selection they achieved this outstanding sweet wine.

     On the nose:  An intense bouqet of dried apricots, honey and meadow flowers.

     On the palate:  The delicate aromas are fully integrated with the notes of the oxidative ageing method in the form of sweet caramel notes

    Recommended combination with food: Perfect partner to lemon cake, dark chocolate citrus or orange desserts, dark chocolate caramel cake but it is also a noble companion to savoury biscuits, quiche Lorraine and roast meats with fruits and Peking duck.

  • Recioto Negrar

    Recioto Della Valpolicella Negrar

    £23.00£125.00

    The history of this wine goes back a long way, dating back to the ancient Romans and the famous wine called “Retico” which was so highly praised and enjoyed by Latin poets.

    Today, known as Recioto, the wine is symbolic of the viticulture of Valpolicella Classico; a wine produced after “Appassimento”, or natural drying and shrivelling of the grapes, and it is also considered to be the origin of the world famous Amarone as we know it.

    Recommended combination with food: desserts, pies, Christmas puddings

    Serve at 14-16°C
