Ch de Fargues Sauternes
With an impressively lengthy history under its belt, de Fargues was built in 1306 by Cardinal Raymond Guilhem de Fargues. The estate came into the de Lur family in 1472, and has been owned by the de Lur-Saluces family since 1586. The palate is medium-bodied with a mellifluous texture. It is very well-balanced with a tangible sense of tension from start to finish, attractive notes of dried honey and quince interlacing the long structured finish. This constitutes serious Sauternes for the serious Sauternes-lover. Limited Stock | Simply click on the Click & Collect Icon and type in your postcode for your nearest store with availability.

Ch D'Yquem Chateau D'Yquem 2005 Sauternes
'Subdued, toasty nose, though apricot and honey aromas emerge with aeration. Sweet and unctuous, bright and fresh, sleek and intense, with flavours of crème brûlée and caramelised oranges. Fine acidity gives elegance and persistence. Pure, nimble and extremely long. No heaviness. Drink 2013-2060' - 19/20 points. - Decanter.com
Ch Guiraud Sauternes
Alongside Chateau d'Yquem, Chateau Guiraud is the only other 1st Growth Sauternes that is physically inside the sub-appellation of Sauternes itself. 'This wine has exceptional clarity, balance and freshness, with lots of spicy botrytis character. Full body, medium-sweet and a crisp finish. Its racy and refined. Whats impressive is the intensity of noble rot that makes the wine feel almost dry. This is the greatest wine ever made here. Made from organic grapes. Try in 2017, but already delicious to drink.' - 99 Points. - James Suckling. 'A large-scale version, with seamlessly layered notes of almond cream, apricot, ginger, mango, piecrust, papaya and toasted hazelnut. The long, spice-infused finish shows ample depth, echoing with an enticing tarte Tatin note. Best from 2016 through 2035.' - 97 Points. - Wine Spectator.

Ch Lafaurie Peyraguey Sauternes
The palate is well balanced with fine minerality, bright citrus fruit, orange zest, a touch of white peach and apricot, good tension towards the finish with a dash of lemongrass on the aftertaste. There is very good weight and botrytis on this Lafaurie Peyraguey that linger seductively. 'A more powerful style, with toasted coconut, almond and orange peel notes up front, followed by a dense core of creamed peach, glazed apricot and ginger, with a date-tinged finish. This should unwind soon enough while staying on the darker, tropical side of the spectrum. Best from 2015 through 2030.' - 93 Points | Wine Spectator.

De Bortoli Show Reserve 8 Year Old Muscat
De Bortoli 8 Year Old Show Reserve Muscat is an award winning Muscat that has beautifully integrated coffee and fig aromas with a gentle touch of oak.

Pfeiffer Old Distillery Classic Rutherglen Tawny
The Pfeiffer classic Rutherglen Tawny is a drier style Tawny, with lovely hazelnut and vanilla flavours and a palate of great persistence.
Maxwell Spiced Mead
Displays a bouquet of honey and citrus, plus an added zest of cinnamon and cloves. These spicy characters are carried through on the palate, filling the mouth with a complex and satisfying array of flavours. Traditionally served hot (not boiling) to enhance its aromas and warm the soul.
Big Sam's Tawny
Another quality tawny from McWilliams, Big Sam is soft, rounded and luscious. With a sweet finish, it makes for the perfect drop to enjoy after a good meal or with fruit and cheese platter.
Ch Sigalas Rabaud Sauternes
The Sigalas-Rabaud has a well-defined nose: grapefruit, nectarine, honey and lime, much more primal than some of the other 2009s. The palate is very well balanced with excellent acidity: apricot, honeysuckle, a touch of orange zest and then vibrant white peach bursting across the finish with lime flower and lemongrass on the aftertaste. Wonderful persistency, power and freshness. Without question: the 2009 is the best Sigalas-Rabaud that I have tasted and this nectar comes highly recommended. - 97 Points | Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

Ch Nairac Sauternes
'Nicolas Tari oversaw a sensational 2009 Chateau Nairac. It has a richer bouquet compared to the 2010 with exuberant, explosive scents of acacia honey, dried apricot and a hint of petrol that transposes the exoticism of the vintage. The palate is well-balanced with a viscous opening. There is plenty of vibrant spicy fruit, interwoven with orange rind and pineapple, leading to a beautifully focused an intense finish. Stack this high in your cellar.' Drink 2016-2040+ - 95 Points | Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. Limited Stock | Available in selected stores only.
