One of the wine world’s most important competitions, the International Wine Challenge in London, was held in early December. The Swedish winery Vingården i Klagshamn (“The Vineyard in Klagshamn” in Southern Sweden) won bronze medals for two of it wines.
One wine was Phantasmagoria 2013. This wine is made from late harvested Solaris grapes, fermented in a new French oak barrel. It has a residual sugar of 57 grams per litre. The jury’s opinion was “Nicely made. Elegant and succulent with spice and herb notes. A touch of orange peel”.
The second medal was for Ego NV, a new wine aged in a solera system. So NV stands for non-vintage. The jury stated: “Lovely, bright acidity. Almonds, tight minerality of wax”.
We congratulate the owners and wine makers Murat “Murre” Sofrakis and Lena Jörgensen! More on the producer: vingardeniklagshamn.se
