Champagne - Brut
"This wine combined the big nutty tones of age with young acidity and fresh attack. The has everything, where the butterscotch is separated from the fruit and nut aromas. This butterscotch taste remains all the way and makes up the entire, exceptionally long aftertaste. One of my three winners at the big Millennium Tasting." Richard Juhlin, April 2004

Miles Bual Madeira
Bual or Boal is a dark and fragrant wine, which is sweet to the taste without being cloying, as it has good balancing acidity. If the richness and sweetness of Malmsey is too much, then this is an excellent choice for a dessert wine.
Bual is ideal to accompany cheese and fruit or fruit preserves. It is the main choice in Madeira to accompany a cheese board, which will often be accompanied with sweet fruit preserves.
Bual will also work very well with dark rich chocolate with a cocoa count of 75% or more. Bual and dark chocolate together make a superb decadent indulgence.
Excellent with cakes and pastries where the sweetness and high acidity of the wine balance the sugar and fat in the desserts.

Spanna has often been cited by wine experts as one of Italy’s greatest ageing wines. Spanna’s longevity can be attributed, at least in part, to the addition of smaller amounts of less tannic, more acidic grape varieties. Tasting notes: The nose opens up beautifully after about an hour and the wine has gorgeous ripe and sweet fruit, nice acidity, and perfectly softened tannins.

Crusted Port -
Bottled in 1964 by John Lovibond and Sons Ltd
Level base of neck | good label
A very unusual and very delicious style of Port, a blend of two vintages with the bottling date shown on the label. The term ‘crusted’ refers to the deposit that the wine throws as it ages, and this starts the moment it is bottled. Always decant, or strain through a muslin, and you should stand the bottle up for 24 hours before this so that the deposits sink to the bottom.
