This wasn't what I was expecting. Very much like a Viognier but with a hint of dry sherry. It opened up quickly and was very good quality. Quite hard to pair this but it worked well with a mild Indonesian salmon curry.
Opened this wine for a gathering with close friends tonight at home.
Wine was golden in colour, with pungent notes of oil on the nose upon opening. After half an hour of decanting, the wine opened up. Nutty notes plus caramel and popcorn and some dried herbs, followed by some buttery and cream on the palate. A hint of bitterness in the finish.
We paired this with salad, ham, sashimi and sushi.
Winemaker's dinner with Philippe Guigal (Operakällaren, Stockholm): Golden yellow colour. Nose with ripe yellow fruit, yellow apples, hints of oranges, mineral, some spice and a hint of flowery aromas. Palate with ripe yellow fruit, apple, noticeable mineral notes, slightly oily texture, spice, medium(-) acidity, a hint of bitterness, good aftertaste. Foody style, rather drinkable now, 90(+) p.
