harrisoni (13711) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2012
Bottle thanks to the cad. Cloudy red orange with lasting pink head. Vegetal fruit and farmyard aroma which is so good its frightening. Perfect in mouth but the swallow and finish are sublime. So drinkable its ridiculous. Spectacular.

yngwie (13555) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle, 75cl wine corked. A gusher, unclear and reddish orange in color, with a small, dense, orangey white head. Funky nose with lemony notes, barnyard and a vinous touch. Old leather, stable, some berries and a hint of grapefruit in the aroma. It’s tart and quite effervescent, medium bodied. Funky flavor with lots of acidity and lemon. Some vinous notes and berries. Lasting lemony finish with funk and some berries. A really pleasant one, complex and tasteful. 121109
