Great red Mallorca wine. Chocolate, oak, red berries with smooth tannins and a quite long finish makes this wine outstanding, perhaps because I’ve cellared some years. Great with a meat dish.

Discrete nose of green apples. On the palate complexity, green apples, sweetness, citrus, well balanced acidic and some hints of petroleum. Over all an excellent Alsatian riesling.

Aired about one hour before consumtion.
A great amarone with a balanced palate with smooth tannins, dried plums, leather, chocolate, raisins and dried cherries. Long and pleasant finish. The wine has developed a lot in my cellar, maybe on top right now. It can’t be so much more tasty.

My favorite riesling is bone dry, crispy, clear and clean with high acidity and hints of lime, lemon, mineral and green apples in a perfect balance. This 2012 vintage has developed in my cellar and got a little bit rounder and even more complex on the palate. A great companion to our shellfish dish and a great riesling!

On the nose this magnifique kiwi sauvignon blanc is like an early nordic springtime morning with subtile hints of grass, green leafy plants and crispy freshness. On the palete a fresh and mouthwatering feeling of gooseberries, nettles, grapefruit and mineral hints. Medium finish with a pleasant fresh mouthfeeling. A masterclass wine.

Was a little worried about this vintage, did I cellar this wine too long? No, this turned out to be a great wine.
Decanted about 1 h. Beautiful blood red color. On the nose plenty of dark fruits as plum and blueberries with some alcoholic hints. On the palette a great delicious mouthfilling taste of dark berries, vanillia, chocolate and smooth tannins. Long and pleasant finish.
A great well balanced wine in it’s peak right now I think. Wish I had some more, but just one more left.

This one is one of the most popular wines in the low price segment at the Swedish market. The wine is ok but in my opinion it´s too young, perhaps it will improve in the cellar for some years. I´ll make a try. According to the low price and not a bad wine at all the QPR is rather good.

Bright golden color, nose with hints of exotic fruits, flavor smooth with low acidity and hints of exotic fruits and a small sweetness with some oily hint. In the finish some nice bitterness. Paired with sushi.

Next day: Even more smooth and in the finish just a pleasant hint of bitterness.

Overall a very pleasant wine together with sushi or on it´s own. Will be interesting to follow this wine the coming years.
