Palazzina Moscato d'Asti, Muscat, Italy - 5 A nose of intense lemon curd, marmalade, and orange peel with fragrant honeysuckle notes. The palate has lots of ripe apricot and acacia honey characters with honeyed sweetness, well-balanced by a fresh citrus zest bite on the lingering finish. (Vegan) Ginestet Sauternes, France - 6 A classic botrytis nose; rich in honey and sweet floral tones with hints of citrus marmalade. The palate is rich and smooth with similar sweet floral and honeyed apricot flavours but with a faintly citrus note in the finish which makes it very moreish. (Vegan) Domaine Fiumicicoli Muscateddu, Red Muscat, Corsica - 7.5 An exciting sweet red wine from the fragrant Muscateddu grape (related to the red Sciacarello of Corsica), this ruby-coloured, unoaked and unfortified wine brims with aromas of strawberry jam and allspice. The palate is fresh and equally aromatic; resinous, woody flavours mix with cherries and bittersweet orange peel. (Vegan)
Turckheim Gewurztraminer Vendange Tardive, France - 9.5 A nose of Seville orange marmalade, rose and a hint of lemon.

A lovely lemony acidity, gives excellent balance on the long, fresh finish. (Vegan)
Kardos Tündémese Late Harvest, Tokaji, Hungary - 5.5 Rich intense mandarin flavours with a honey note suggesting botrytis fruit. Textured with a vibrant acidity that pevents the sweetness from becoming cloying. Very drinkable, this doesn't need food and has a finish that just goes on and on.

Krohn Colheita 1983, Port, Portugal - 10 Round and silky on the palate, with an attractive crisp acidity, the wine finishes with a persistent nutty butterscotch flavour. Warming and seductive, this wine displays all the intricacy and opulence of many years of ageing in seasoned oak casks. (Vegan)
Ferdinand de Castilla Classic Pedro Ximenez, Sherry, Spain - 6 Opaquely dark mahogany colour.
