    December 30, 2013 - Wine Koop in Umeå flexing early muscles (Hemmavid (Umeå, North of Sweden)): Well balanced oak on nose and palate greet you as you approach the glass and take the first thoughtful sip.
    Not quite Burgundian in style, more NZ than Calif. (I'd have gone for NZ in a blind tasting.)
    Still very fruity with a good dollop of oak. Great acids. Very good body and ok finish. Little too citrussy for my palate. Not enough minerality to merit a higher score in my World.

    Score is for a white wine.
    Too pricey in Sweden to be of any use in our cellar. Not my cup of tea, but a great effort nevertheless.

    *** update ***
    2nd day, this has become more towards tropical fruits jamboree. So, deducted two points from the original 90.

    August 21, 2011 - - Yellow color with medium forming legs and aromas of geranium and dusty. It's lacking fruit and has flavours of natural gas and mushroom with a medium/full body with a medium finish.
