Okay, so I am weak when it comes to sweet sherries. I love the way they roll over your tongue with that viscous, unctuous, gooeyness and their exotic flavours. This one coats with Scottish marmalade, orange peel, raisins, honey and nuts yet it is not too cloying. Dreamy. Sit by the fire with a bowl of marcona almonds, organic dried apricots and a wedge of Quebec blue cheese.

Château La Garde 2010

This gorgeous wine hit high on my want scale (almost over to the need side). Complex and exotic with serious tannins, great structure, heaps of cherry, blackberry, plum, bitter couverture chocolate, hint of cigar and top notes of a spicy-floral nature (freesia?) Really fabulous, especially at the price.

Full and gorgeous, creamy mousse, nuts and brioche with a long toasty and citrusy finish. Share with your favourite people!

My notes say "nom-nom" - which says it all! Dry, dry and crisp but with great body hiding under the fine bubbles. Lemon, brioche and almond on the palate. Beautifully sippable now, but will evolve for another decade.
