3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Really interesting aroma, the white wine comes through, with hazelnuts and red fruit . The taste isn’t quite as powerful, the wine dominates the finish, it is very drinkable for its abv, but was expecting more.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (33cl) from Vinmonopolet (Storo), Oslo. Finger-thick short-lived offwhite head, settles as a ring and thin islets. Rusty red/golden (strawberry juice) colour. Powerful sweet & sour aroma of boozy fermented fruit (raisin and strawberry in particular), medium dry sherry, and solvents. Full body, soft carbonation, vinous mouthfeel. Taste is mostly sweet, fruity and boozy, with a surrounding background acidity that provides good balance. Acidity becomes dominant towards the finish, and an oxidized white wine element comes forward. Impressive.
