Diemersfontein Coffee Pinotage 2011

The new 2011 vintage is now available in all Systembolaget's stores, article number 6315-01, price 85 kr/bottle

The South African producer Diemersfontein is internationally famous for producing "THE ORIGINAL COFFEE & CHOCOLATE PINOTAGE" and we are very proud to introduce it to the Swedish market. It has been a huge success and here is what some of the Swedish press have said about it to date:

  • "The best Coffee Pinotage I've tasted so far. The dark berry aromas from the Pinotage grape seeps through the intense aromas of coffee and chocolate from the toasted oak. Everything is spiced by a typical South African and lightly smoky touch.”  MIKAEL CHRISTIANSSON, "Årets Näsa 2011", Nov 2011
  • "Dark fruit characters with clear roasted notes and elements of coffee. Liqht bitterness towards the finish. Great with grilled sirloin steak." EXPRESSEN - 4 out of 5, April 2011
  • "A South African wine with notes of coffee and chocolate that is best combined with powerful, autumnlike tastes. For me Diemersfontein Coffee Pinotage is an exciting wine that breathes autumn, year round. It is perfect with root vegetables, venison, lamb, wild bird or duck" PAUL SVENSSON, award-winning star chef, Nov 2011
  • "A wine to just enjoy, a bit of adult candy, but also perfect with a steak with a sauce that has a little bit of sweetness in it - why not pour a bit of the wine in the sauce! I would also drink this wine with a cheese that has a bit of saltiness in it, like for example Emmental where the saltiness in the cheese can balance the sweetness in the wine. Or instead of an "avec" when you enjoy your chocolate this christmas. A wine you should always have at home because this wine is easy to like!" JOSEPHINE EDELSKOG, TV3 Adam Live Vinexpert, Nov 2011

 

Gardo & Morris Brut Rosé

Available at Systembolaget's ordinary sortment, article number 7732-01, price 109 kr/bottle

In April 2011 we released our very own Gardo & Morris Brut Rosé exclusively to the Swedish market. It is Systembolagets only Rosé Sparkling wine, made in the traditionel champagne method style from New Zealand. This wine has also been a great success and here follows some reviews from the Swedish press:

  • Splendid! SvD, MIKAEL MÖLSTAD,  Nov 2011
  • A Bargain! Sydsvenskan, Dec 2011
  • More than priceworthy! Allt om Mat, Okt 2011
  • A real bargin! Extra plus for the pretty bottleELLE Mat och Vin, Nov 2011
  • A Bargin! DVPE, Dina Viner Professional Edition, April 2011
  • "A wonderful winter rosé with a champagne feeling - a must during the winter season"  JOSEPHINE EDELSKOG - TV3 Adam Live, wine- and champagneexpert
  • "Seductive New Zealander from outside to inside" The best sparkling wines of this winter, vinegott.se Nov 2011
  • Great buy! 4 out of 5 points. EXPRESSEN, April 2011

 

  • Great buy! 4 out of 5 points. AFTONBLADET, April 2011

 

Ata Rangi Pinot Noir 2009

New Zealand's very own grand cru Pinot Noir is now available in Systembolaget's exclusive stores while stocks last ! Article number 9037601, price 359 kr/bottle

Here is what the Swedish press think about the wine:

  • "Only very few bottles exist of this exquisite pinot noir which is probably  New Zealand’s best. Buy it now if you have the chance. I have seldom tried a better pinot noir from the new world. It is significantly darker than Bourgogne wines and more silky in its structure/texture. The finish is long and almost sensual." SYDSVENSKAN, Oct 2011
  • "New Zealand's cult wine Ata Rangi will run out straight away but it is worth queuing up for, because queuing you will have to do if you want to have the possibility of buying a few of the wines that are launched today." SYSTA STYVERN VIN & MAT, Oct 2011
  • 92 points - Inviting spicy nose with tones of salty liquorish and sweet red berries. Sweet fruit with a complex earthiness/mineral character, generous with warm pepper/spiciness and fine length, at the same time elegant. LIVETS GODA.se, Sept 2011'
  • Young deep pinot characteristic notes of violets, raspberry and tobacco. Fresh with a distinct light fruit in a mineral tinged style with a hot sting in the elegant finish. Winechef.se, Nov 2011
