We have written about some unusual wines over the years but The Thing takes the biscuit. It's made from 100 per cent Moscatel de Alejandría from a high-altitude site at Segovia near Valladolid and the Spanish capital, Madrid. After picking, the grapes are hung to dry out for two months.

Roughly 50 per cent of the crop is affected by botrytis. The grapes are then pressed, with everything, stems and all, going into a stainless steel tank where they are left to ferment until the native yeasts give up the ghost.

The entire mixture is then decanted into individually hand-labelled bottles. What results is a turbid amber colour and cloudier than a home brew, but much more compelling. Every bottle will taste a little different so it's a little disingenuous to write a tasting note. Let's just say it's a peculiar and delicious, character-rich wine with amazing, rapier-like acidity splicing though a luscious core of unctuous fruitiness. Not for the faint of heart but many will love it!
