This is a tiny family winery near cold climate Orange in NSW which was a welcome discovery when I was judging at the 2017 Toowoomba Wine Show. They make award winning Shiraz Viognier and straight Viognier in minute quantities. It would be safe to say this would be the first bottle of this wine ever consumed in Copenhagen as I brought it over here. This is a full bodied flavoursome and voluptuous White with attractive Apricot flavours and some bitterness to finish off. Very Good. — 6 days ago
At Manfreds in Copenhagen known for its organic food and its natural Wines. This is a Carignan from Languedoc. Deep Ruby in colour. Profound barnyard aromas - might be some Brett which sometimes befalls natural wines. Smells like a live cattle truck you might pass on a back road. Medium to Full bodied palate with powdery M+ tannins. I don’t mind this style but probably not for everyone. The Somm told me this was 100% Carignan - no Alicante. — 6 days ago
When I saw Albariño I thought Spain or Portugal but this is from Uruguay. 95 points at the Decanter 2017 World Wine Awards. Very pale lemon in colour. Again appley flavours with a trace of bitterness - extended skin contact? Wouldn’t give it 95 but a good refreshing well made white. — 7 days ago
The perfect wine to have with antipasto consisting of fresh Roma Tomatoes , mozzarella and sardines. Wine was citrus zesty with M+ body. Very moreish. At an outdoor square commemorating Victor Borge the multi talented Danish American comedian who was born in Copenhagen and died in Connecticut. — 5 days ago
An excellent modern rendition of Margaret River Chardonnay. Oak is there but not overpowering blending nicely with the stone fruit. Robert And Sandy Oatley became billionaires when they sold Rosemount to Southcorp (Penfolds and Lindemans) and since then Rosemount hardly exists 😟😟. Anyway this is their new venture on a much smaller scale. Bob Oatley died in 2016 aged 87. Apart from Wine the Oatleys have a huge legacy with ocean yacht racing with “Wild Oats” winning 8 Sydney to Hobart line honours. — 8 days ago
