Sweet Wine, Carmes de Rieussec, Sauternes 2016

£ 20.00

Apricot, marmalade and golden sweetness

Fantastic with Foie Gras (or own its own!) and in a handy 35.5CL half bottle too… This absolutely gorgeous sweet wine is the 2nd wine of Château Rieussec from Sauternes in Bordeaux, where it borders the world-famous Château d`Yquem.

The aromas are just made for sniffing. Enjoy complex apricot, marmalade and honey with hints of vanilla. When you can tear yourself away and take a sip, you get all of those flavours plus orange blossom, ginger notes and a golden sweetness followed by a gentle wash of acidity to freshen everything up. A real treat.

White, Sweet | 37.5CL |14.0% ABV

Food and Wine Pairing
Fabulous with Foie Gras of any description! It just melts in the mouth with the gorgeous sweetness of the Moscatel…Don’t forget the pudding option as well…a little Sweetie with blue cheeses is heavenly…or just on its own!

About the Producer
With the 160 year old family vineyards located in the gorgeous medieval village of Olite and nearby Traibuenas in Navarra, just under the Pyrenees Mountains of France, Bodegas Ochoa is now one of the top wineries of the region and is still very much a family affair, with Javier Ochoa and his daughter Adriana making the wines and his brother Alvaro running the business end.

The historic winery in Olite dates back to the 1800’s and is used to mature the wines in barrels with a cool and humid atmosphere created by the thick walls and wooden beamed ceiling, while the modern winery just outside the village ensures consistently fresh and pure fruited wines. After everything else has been harvested, the Moscatel grapes, already heavy with natural sugars, are left on the vines to further concentrate them and obtain the ripe, lightly raisined flavours that make this gorgeously sweet, yet refreshing, Late Harvested (Vendimia Tardia) Moscatel a real treat.

With many awards and international recognition as a top-quality delicious Sweetie, who can resist a little glass of something so nice!
