We received some news from one of the Swedish vineyards the other day. Blaxsta Winery in Sörmland, south of Stockholm, is probably the most rewarded of the Swedish vineyards. Göran Amnegård, owner and winemaker, says that three of Blaxtas Vidal Ice Wine has received over 97 points by Robert Parker and a gold medal in the International Challenge du Vin.
Last year’s beautiful summer resulted in one of Blaxtas best vintages so far, says Göran. “Our Merlot and Chardonnay were picked with great maturity, they have delicate fruit aromas and lovely tannins.” And as for 2014, it is not only in France that it is an early season. “We will have a very early flowering here at Blaxta.”
The restaurant at Blaxta Winery is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year and it will be open daily, 7 days / week, during the period June 27 to August 7. Göran will compose a new 5-course menu every night. www.blaxstawine.se
