Les Hauts de Granget, 2016 (18 EUR/19 USD in Sweden), red dry blend wine, Saint-Émilion, Libournais, Bordeaux, France, 3,5 NJP of 5,0 NJP (85 points of 100 points) (17-05-2022 by Nenad Jelisic)

 

NJ Wines does not usually write about the value for money of the wines, but in the case of this wine we have to. To get such a good wine from Saint-Émilion Grand Cru for 189 SEK is absolutely incredible. Bravo Systembolaget, Wine Affair Scandinavia and Union de Producteurs de Saint-Emilion! It is austere and nuanced. ... Read more

 

Col d'Orcia, Brunello di Montalcino, 2016 (27 EUR/31 USD in Sweden), red dry wine, Brunello di Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy, 3,5 NJP of 5,0 NJP (85 points of 100 points) (13-02-2022 by Nenad Jelisic)

 

Col d'Orcia Brunello di Montalcino 2016 is a really good wine that comes from the appellation Brunello di Montalcino and that really wins on a two hour long aerating (decanting). It is austere and nuanced, has a very good tannin structure, wonderful aroma richness and a very long, dry and spicy aftertaste. Aroma: tobacco, black tea, ... Read more

 

Steyer, Steyer Mark, Cuvée, 2015 (20 EUR when purchasing in the winery) white dry blend wine, Radgona-Kapela, Štajerska, Podravje, Slovenia, 3,5 NJP of 5,0 NJP (85 points of 100 points) (06-03-2021 by Nenad Jelisic)

Steyer Steyer Mark Cuvée 2015 is a wine that consists of 50% Gewurztraminer, 25% Chardonnay and 25% Pinot Gris. Its aroma is moderately perfumed, floral and fruity. While its flavour is very fresh and moderately fruity. In the aroma, one finds yellow apples, white flowers, yellow pears, nectarines and sweet spices. In the flavour, one  ... Read more

 

Los Patricios, Chardonnay, 2016 (25 EUR/30 USD in Sweden) white dry wine, Valle del Itata, Région del Sur, Chile, 3,5 NJP of 5,0 NJP (85 points of 100 points) (07-02-2021 by Nenad Jelisic)

If I should blind test this wonderful Chardonnay-wine, I would most likely say that it comes from the Meursault appellation in Côte de Beaune, Burgundy, France. The wine is without a doubt the best Chardonnay-wine that I have tasted from Chile so far. The aroma is big, complex and full-bodied. In it one will find browned butter, ... Read more

 

Poliziano, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, 2017 (23 EUR/27 USD in Sweden) red dry blend wine, Tuscany, Italy, 3,5 of 5,0 NJP (85 points of 100 points) (31-01-2021 by Nenad Jelisic)

This is a wine that really needs to be decanted. It really benefits from it by intensifying both its richness of aroma and flavour, especially its richness of aroma. In the aroma one can clearly find crème de cassis, dark cherry jam, roasted oak barrels, cocoa-rich dark chocolate, dried plums, cardamom, vanilla and freshly ground coffee. In the ... Read more

 

Edi Simcic, Sauvignon, 2017 (22 EUR when purchasing in the winery) white dry wine, Goriska Brda, Primorje, Slovenia, 3,5 NJP of 5,0 NJP (85 points of 100 points) (23-01-2021 by Nenad Jelisic)

This vintage is not as big and complex as the 2016 vintage, but it is still really good. Better to say Edi Simcic Sauvignon 2017 is better than at least 90% of the world's Sauvignon Blanc-wines. In the aroma, one can clearly feel green tomatoes, blackcurrant leaves, stinging nettles, green herbs and green apples. In the flavour, one can clearly ... Read more

 

Edi Simcic, Kozana, Chardonnay, 2017 (35 EUR when purchasing in the winery) white dry wine, Goriska Brda, Primorje, Slovenia, 3,5 NJP of 5,0 NJP (85 points of 100 points) (07-11-2020 by Nenad Jelisic)

 

This vintage of Kozana Chardonnay from the Simcic family (Alex and Edi), which comes 100% from the Kozana vineyard, is not as good as the 2015 vintage that got 4,5 NJP of 5,0 NJP, but regardless it the wine belongs to one of the best Chardonnay-wines from vintage 2017 that NJ Wines tasted in 2020. For the aroma itself, the wine ... Read more

 

Sankt Anna, Riesling, 2019 (9 EUR/10 USD in Sweden) white semi-sweet wine, Germany, 3,5 NJP of 5,0 NJP (85 points of 100 points) (07-09-2020 by Nenad Jelisic)

Here we have a really good Riesling-wine from the wine region of Pfalz in Germany. One of the best that NJ Wines has tasted so far from Germany this year. Its high sugar content, 31 grams per liter, is very well met by its high acidity. Thanks to it, it does not taste as a semi-sweet wine, it tastes more as a semi-dry wine. The wine ... Read more
