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.

Year 2020, light and sweet and easy to drink. A fun wine good with seafood.

Guava, lime, citrusy flavour, with a long finish. Medium body. Very pale gold, dry. Amrita brought over from NZ. Had it on Surstromming Sunday.

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.

Sweet, but somehow nowhere near sickly. Very, very drinkable, aromatic and lovely. A nice one to get again.

Classic Riesling - lychee, honeysuckle but not much complexity. Just sweetness.
