The thing with our experiments is that they must be a true expression of the brand characterit is our main business to do our core products well, then at the top end is a wine playground; seventy percent of what we do is core, twenty percent is retail and winery products and at the top is ten percent playground products where we have a go at creating the new, and interesting and boundary-pushing products.

Slightly creamy and biscuity notes not present initially on the nose after about fifteen minutes.

The salary, with maintenance and residence in the home, not to exceed £50 per annum.

Sweetness of the ice wine so well integrated, pineapples, tropics, kiwi, subtle dark fruits, hints of citrus especially lemon zest, and a soft note of Apple and pear flesh on the nose.
