Wines and wine notes - WSET level 2

At the beginning of March this year I attended the intensive course for WSET level 2 Award in wine and spirits. The course took place at The Culinary Academy in Oslo (Kulinarisk Akademi i Oslo) - link to their home page is shown below.


In this post, I will put the pictures from the wines that we used for the course and my own notes about those wines. The pictures are in the same order as we did taste them during the course. At the end we also tasted 4 sprits.

ps. From Autumn 2019 WSET level 2 does not have sprits anymore in the course plan.
