Sedlescombe Dessert Wine 2016



2016 Solaris Dessert 37.5cl

This is special edition wine to celebrate the highest natural sugar levels ever recorded at Sedlescombe – and quite possibly in England - a result of the exceptionally dry and warm late summer weather of 2016.  A naturally sweet Dessert wine produced from unchapitalized juice from our 2016 Solaris grapes. Fermentation not fully completed so as to achieve 57g/l residual sugar.  No sweetening added! Fermented using natural wild yeasts. 

TASTING NOTES  This wine has an elegant character with full-on smooth sweetness balanced superbly by exquisite fruity acidity.  Quite complex. Great with cheeses or most after dinner delights, or enjoy on its own. An exceptional English Wine to be proud of!

Hi Roy/Irma,
Just to let you know we have tried a white , red and rose wine over the weekend. The wine is the best we have ever tasted and we'll definitely be buying some more . Superfast delivery with excellent packaging and customer service.

Recent testimonial:
What we tasted last week was fantastic ! The sparklings had tipicity with such a beautiful flavour profile. The whites were nicely fresh and the low alcohol-level was definitely a great feature. The reds had complexity, elegance and texture Thank you for showing what they can be with a bit of age to it. These varietals, grown under your biodynamic culture result in wines being so healthy and food-friendly. They even had iodine notes coming through, the reds were showing some intense minerality.
