    March 8, 2016 - I agree with the lack of nerve bur the good fruit and mouth filling lift deserves some reverence.

    August 22, 2015 - Gjorde ingen djupare analys - konstaterade att jag upplever det som jag gjorde för några månader sen (de tidigare not).

    Väldigt bra halvsöt riesling på alla sätt och vis men lite mer koncentration och nerv hade gjort det till ett exceptionellt vin. 88+

    June 15, 2015 - grilled lamb chops and good wines on a Sunday afternoon (Stockholm): Everyone enjoyed this very much as an aperitif.

    Today, this delivered on the perhaps slightly hyped promise of greatness that a very successful marketing campaign in Swedish wine media and grapevine networks had built up prior to release at the state monopoly retailer, systembolaget. Already from the get go this has a beautiful riesling nose with so much more than just the green apple freshness, there's all sorts of sweet ripe apples and white peaches as well as some sunny floral aromas, and the freshness to balance it all perfectly. And the body and structure given the 7,5 % alc is very admirable. Such a great producer! and fun to try one of these. I have some more stashed away for later...

    May 30, 2015 - Doftar söta gröna äpplen, lite honung, jasminblom, melon-/gurktoner, lite grönörtigt och en pyttepuff petroleum.
    I munnen är det fjäderlätt och elektriskt med syrliga granny Smith med lite skalig kärvhet, omogen honungsmelon, ljus honung med en försiktig och behaglig sötma.

    Väldigt gott och sprittande friskt! Inte så stort som hypen antydde dock och det går att hitta likvärdiga rieslingar till en mindre kostnad. 88p+
