    May 3, 2016 - This is a VERY interesting wine.....my first go around was comparing it to the SQN Petition....but the acidity is CRAZY in this bottle right now?? Pop-n-pour....cloudy and rustic looking....tropical fruits, apricot intermingling with green apples and lemons.....HIGH toned acidity in this....almost effervescent....exotic with hot buttered rum spices, smoked sea salt, crushed limestone, nutty Roussanne-ness, floral blossoms, essential citrus oils......perplexing...seems like it should be REALLY rich and cloying...but has an intense beam of acidity that cuts everything up! This wine could go either way here....amazing...or repulsive.....which IMO makes it....fascinatingly fantastic!

    November 11, 2013 - BYO (Østerbro): Intense and deep nose with a full-body packed with pineapple, mango and vanilla. Just a hint of wine-gums.
    Packed with pineapple fruit on the palate with a solid acidity and a long and solid aftertaste.
    Perhaps a bit over the top but I really liked it :-)

    August 26, 2013 - CVd a glass.....cloudy and rustic...tropical fruit trying to overcome the green apple, tart lemon....really exotic and pretty rich! Reminds me of a SQN white?? Like The Petition....which has 62% Alban fruit...30% Chard.......has honysuckle florals of a Viognier, and hot buttered rum spice, hazelnut butter of the chard! Not as heavy as the Petition....more citrus squeeze, minerality....crushed salty limestone. I dig this!! Not something typical in the Chardonnay camp.....but one you would expect from the likes of a John Alban, or a Manfred Krankl!! Love it!
