Don't be put off by the 'sweet' tag, this is delicious, food friendly wine. It does have residual sugar but it's all in the mid palate, making this perfect for spicier, Eastern dishes.

A really lovely Sauvignon, crisp dry and full of flavour. Fabulous nose citrus and herbs.

This is a great, light and crisp Riesling with a fruity finish. I really enjoyed it. It is sweet but not overly so.

Too sweet for my taste. Rose petals, slight petrol, stone fruit. Decent acid, but not enough to counter the sugar.
