Exellent, fresh summer wine. Simple and elegant.

Such a pleasure, and such a different wine compared to the latest release (2018 at the time of writing). Dark colour and cloudy appearence. Intense aromas of red sour cherries, blood orange and raspberries. The palate offers both a salivating acidity and astringent tannin, and of course Frank’s signature volcanic minerality that almost vibrates with every sip. No sign of peaking yet.

Stor parfymerad doft av röda bär och jordig mineral. Spritsigt och lätt men med markerade tanniner. Otroligt läskande med mogna jordgubbar, körsbär och vilda örter...

What a unique wine! Funky notes of blue cheese at first but then it turns smoky. Lots of berry flavors. Minerality to the max!!!

Proof that terroir exists. Rather pine-y and earthy.
