About the 2010 vintage
The Villa Sandahl 2010 vintage is made under much better conditions then ever before, and the real break through for Villa Sandahl. The vinification is performed in the brand new Bazaltbor winery situated only some hundred meters from Villa Sandahl. The winemaker at Bazaltbor is Bakó Ambrus, a serious genius with passion for quality and natural winemaking. Despite the poor 2010 cold and wet autumn, Villa Sandahl is again taking an unbelievable big leap upwards in quality, which were already very high from the 2008 vintage.
To celebrate the tremendous 2010 wines, Villa Sandahl has changed the label graphics. From 2010 and onwards, every wine and vintage will have a new unique label, that is designed from what happen to appear in the heads at bottling time. This first vintage with individual design is dedicated to the unavoidable Hungarian stamp and to the Swedish pedantic medicine recipe. (Click on the labels to get high resolution images).
Note that our top quality wines must be tasted warmer then is usually considered for white wines. We recommend a temperature not below 15 Co, so don't serve our wines directly from a 4 Co refrigerator (if they are supposed to be drunk immediately from the glasses). Also note that our wines are very useful to food, see the Wine and Food page.

2010 Rhine Riesling 'The Stamp'

The stamp is made of Riesling grapes from the Genesis (former Zsuzsanna) vineyard and from the top juice fraction at pressing. It is a wine for connoisseurs that want fresh but soft acidity, and barely detectable sugar. The purity and richness i spectacular, and gives the wine an 'electric' feeling in the mouth. Note that our top quality wines must be tasted warmer then is usual for white wines. We recommend a temperature not below 15 Co, so don't serve our wines directly from a 4 Co refrigerator.

Colour: Medium, youthful yellow.

Smell: The smell is full of citrus, lime, honey, dried fruit and minerals. The elegant acidity is laser sharp and electric. The smell has not yet opened up, but is absolutely promising.

Taste: The taste is rich and full, still young and a bit raw, but with high potential to improve with bottle ageing. The after taste is very long and wonderfully free from any kind of bitterness.

Judgement: This wine is a monster in superlative characters. It is a bit closed for the moment, but will blossom in a couple of years and last for a good decade.

2010 Rhine Riesling 'Recept'

Note that for the Swedish market 'Recept' could not be approved, since it is not political correct to prescribe alcohol. To walk around this, we renamed it to accept.

Recept (Accept :-) is made from the same grapes as the stamp, but from a lesser refined juice fraction. It is a bit sweeter and earlier accessible than the long-lasting stamp.

Colour: Medium, youthful yellow.

Smell: The quality is extremely satisfying, making the smell pure and nicely accessible. The richness results in a powerful smell, at the same time the character is elegant and crisp, with a small and wonderful addition of botrytis.

Taste: This taste has a fresh acidity and some balancing residual sugar to attract the core customer segment. It is a powerful and extremely pleasant wine with the taste reaching its maturity within shortly.

Judgement: It is a bold and dramatic wine, accessible for immediate consumption or storing it for 5 years.
