Chapel Down Nectar Late Harvest - 6 Bottles (50cl)
This is something a little bit special made from the aromatic grape varieties Schönburger, Bacchus, Reichensteiner and Seigerrebe that were allowed to hang on the vine longer to accumulate high sugar levels.
Look forward to marmalade, dried apricot, stone-fruit, clementine and floral characters on the nose and the palate, along with some complexity from a portion of Botrytised grapes. Sweet without being heavy or cloying, this is ideal with cheeses and desserts. 8%

Plan a trip to Tenterden for a vineyard tour and snap up a bottle or two of this summery sweet wine. It's a blend of four varieties, together giving dusky aromas of white flowers, bananas and marmalade, and fresh, honeyed flavours, serve cold, lovely by itself or with Blue Cheese and Walnut Scones.

Yes, an English sticky – from Chapel Down, a delicate, late harvest number by the name of Nectar, made from a mix of unpronounceable German grapes and weighing in at a feather-light 8% abv. It’s the first English sticky I’ve liked and I’d drink it with the usual suspects or on its own but – in either case – with pleasure. Peter Grogan 16/02/12
It’s a rather delicate little number but with a glorious aroma of elderflower and a palate sweetly perfumed with apricots, oranges and a hint of hawthorn, it is wonderfully ‘English springtime’ in a glass. Andrew Barrow 15/02/12
