Sweet

Château Vartely Chardonnay Dulce Alb 2013

Super, super rare, this is the only late harvest sweet wine produced in the country and by one of the top producers: Château Vartely. Think white flowers and honey with a razor-like acidity crisping everything up nicely. A steal when compared to sweet wines from other countries. Made with 100% Chardonnay.

RRP £15.99 (£14.49 when you buy12) from Laithwaites.
